The balsam fir is a North American fir, native to most of eastern and central Canada and the northeastern United States. It is a tall, graceful evergreen tree up to 65 ft high, with a tapering trunk and numerous branches giving the tree an overall shape of a perfect cone. It forms blisters of oleoresin on the branches, produced from special vesicles beneath the bark. This oleoresin is collected by puncturing vesicles in the bark. Fir oil is an antiseptic, solvent, disinfectant and deodorant. Its properties for mind include: elevating, grounding and opening.
