Traditionally known for its properties: antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, mimetic hormone: mimetic cortisone, fungicide, parasiticide, antitussive, expectorant and antispasmodic.

Anti-inflammatory: bornyl acetate present in this essential oil  is able to regulate the body's immune responses in case of inflammation

Antibacterial: it is shown that the monoterpenes  (alpha-pinene, camphene, delta-3-carene) are able to act against different types of microorganisms, especially bacteria such as Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus.

Expectorant: thanks to the action of monoterpenes, the essential oil of black fir facilitates the fluidification of mucus in the trachea and bronchi and promotes their expulsion through coughing.

Emotional benefits:

The subtle action of its aroma includes dissolving anxieties to rebalance energy, stimulates initiative by eliminating fatigue and is also an excellent sexual tonic.
