The Essence of Inshanti’s Balsam Fir comes from the organic forests of Canada. There is some evidence now that the “liquid gold” referred to in the Bible was none other than Balsam, an oil for kings and royalty. It was one of the three oils found in King Tutankhamun’s grave in 1922, and it is now thought that balsam was the “Balm of Gilead.” Balsam has been used for thousands of years as a medicinal oil for respiratory, muscular and rheumatic pain. Balsam Fir is mentioned 18 times in the Bible.
Balsam Fir is an awesome anti-inflammatory and analgesic; it can help relieve rheumatic pain and swelling. It relaxes the nervous system and calms muscle spasms.
Balsam Fir is a strong anti-microbial agent against colds and flu. This essential oil is an excellent decongestant, mucolytic, and calms spastic coughing.
Balsam Fir can also lower cortisol levels. Studies have shown that Balsam will inhibit MCF7-(aggressive breast cancer cells). When blended together,
Balsam Fir and Frankincense work together greatly to inhibit cancers in seven different cancer lines. However, further research is needed to understand the nature of these therapeutic effects of Balsam Fir oil.
