I have 75 Christmas `s under my belt. Being from New England, and spending thousands of hours in the woods, camping, photographing and Kayaking, I know what a Balsam tree should smell like. The scent of the Balsam is unmistakable. To most of us, that small takes you back to another time, a better time. A friend in New Hampshire told me about your oils and she raved about the Christmas Tree Lot oil. I went ahead and purchased it. The little bottle arrived today. When I opened the cap and took a sniff, the smell was that of cut branches and bark but not even a hint of the sweet balsam fir I was expecting. I heated up a small amount of water in a clean diffuser and added two drops of the oil. After a short time, the smell of fresh cut branches and other scents came through. I did not find them pleasant. On many occasions I have taken the resin from the blisters of a balsam and used it for a topical balm for minor scrapes and cuts. It also makes an excellent fire starter for a tinder bundle with a wonderful smell. Like you I have collected many types of resin from may conifers in New England. I heat them in a diffuser for amazing smells.
I will say this about the oil you offer. It does smell as you say it does. If people are looking for the raw smell of cut pine
branches , bark and other parts of the tree, then this is what they will get. In that respect the oil is pure but not for me.
