Black Spruce: Topical application for muscular aches and pains, poor circulation and rheumatism. Spruce Oil has also been used to improve breathing conditions of asthma, bronchitis, coughs and general weakness. In 'Aromatherapy Scent and Psyche', Peter Damian notes: "Antiseptic, expectorant, and antitussive, black spruce oil is an ideal remedy for all lung ailments (e.g. asthma and bronchitis) whether utilized as an inhalant or a cough remedy. Indeed, the vital etheric energy (prana) condensed and and transmitted in and by black spruce effectively vibrates throughout the respiratory, nervous and glandular systems."
Black Spruce is also noted as a powerful massage oil component for muscular and rheumatic pains, greatly stimulating circulation.
The bark of the Spruce tree, which contains essential oil components, is current in the British Herbal Pharmacopoeia as indicated for diarrhea, cystitis, mucous colitis, leucorrhoea, uterine prolapse, pharyngitis, stomatitis and gingivitis.
Blue Tansy: also known as Moroccan chamomile. This Chamomile, which is classified botanically as a member of the Tansy family, has the most chamazulene of all the blue oils, and is characterized by an intensely sweet herbal scent and deep blue color. Blue tansy, like the other ‘blue’ oils, is used for sore muscles, strains, arthritis, rheumatism, and sciatica. Chamomile is also used in treating skin problems, providing soothing calming and cleansing action useful for burns, blisters, inflamed wounds, ulcers, boils, dermatitis, eczema, rashes, wounds, and hypersensitive skin problems. Reportedly smoothes out broken capillaries, improving elasticity and tissue strength.
