White Fir: The Oil of Generational Healing

White Fir, like Douglas Fir, addresses generational issues. Patterns and traditions that have been passed down by our families and ancestors can really become embedded for years. Some are positive while others are negative and even destructive. Negative patterns include: lying, manipulation, narcissism, addictions, abuse, anger, codependency, eating disorders, pride, the need to be right, and the list goes on.

White Fir assists us in clearing these negative patterns and unearthing them from where they’re deeply embedded in our bodies and souls. As they are brought up to the surface and we become conscious of them, they can finally be dealt with and put to bed for good. Who wants to participate in destructive family patterns anyway? It’s much better to face them, become aware of them and break the tradition. White Fir can help in this process and wants you to succeed at this mission. In breaking the patterns, White Fir offers a place to seek refuge and protection on a spiritual level and helps you stay true to your path of healing even when family members oppose or stay rigid in their ways.

White Fir, as with any “tree oils”, is a grounding oil. Think of a tree, whose roots reach deep into the Earth while its branches reach high into the sky and you’ll get a picture of the emotional affects of this oil. Grounding yet empowering and uplifting. It leaves you feeling emotionally stable and strong enough to weather any storm.  It is physically grounding and relaxing. It has a strong, spicy and woody scent. This oil will ground the body and empower the mind. It will help those who feel inadequate or disempowered.

By the way, any of the oils that are from trees (Cedarwood, Frankincense, etc.) will provide stabilisation, grounding and security to our being, physically and emotionally. I just love them! And you will too 🙂

Usage Tips

Always test for skin sensitivity prior to widespread use and use on the feet when possible. Excessive use of any oil can lead to skin sensitisation. Keep out of eyes, ears, or nose. Not all oils are created equal, so test brands carefully, and never use an oil in a way not recommended by its maker.
