You will only find corkbark firs growing in western states like Arizona and New Mexico at high elevations, which may be what gives the essential oil such a strong bracing aroma. It can provide strength for your body as well, used as a tonic, and your immune system. Let it lift up your spirit when you breathe in its balsamic aroma as a perfume oil. Bring the power of the mountain fir to work fortifying you with strength and clarity.
