Silver fir

Abies alba

Pinaceae family

Harvested and steam distilled from needles of wild trees, in Sardinia, Italy

This fir is native to the mountains of Europe from the Pyrenees to Normandy, the Alps, and down through the Carpathians and the Balkans. They seems to be happiest in a cold and humid climate with lots of rain, and they flourish in the Italian Alps.

Medicinally, the bark and wood have been extracted and found to have cardio-protective effects as well as provoke a glycemic response in healthy volunteers.

Arctander says

Abies alba essential oil is a colorless or pale yellow mobile liquid of rich balsamic-sweet and pleasant oily-pinaceous fragrance. Abies alba has applications  in perfumes for bath preparations, air fresheners, fougères, colognes, soaps,  and has great power, performance, and stability. It blends well with galbanum, ionones, labdanum, lavandin, linalool, oakmoss, rosemary, etc

The Fir-Tree

The winds have blown more bitter
Each
darkening day of fall;
High over all the house-tops
The
stars are far and small
I wonder, will my fir-tree
Be
green in spite of all?

O
grief is colder—colder
Than wind from any part;
And
tears of grief are bitter tears,
And doubt’s a
sorer smart!
But I
promised to my fir-tree
To keep the
fragrant heart.

--Josephine Preston Peabody
