All our balsam products are filled with balsam fir needles and twigs that have been professionally processed and dried. Because of this process, the scent of our items will last for many
years. The balsam fir is common in Northern New England, and is our well-known Christmas tree. For centuries, boughs were scattered over floors of churches and houses during winter,
providing a clean, scented covering. Long ago, people realized the aromatherapy benefits, the uplifting fragrance helped overcome winter blues and encouraged feelings of contentment and joy.
***Please note*** While balsam has a natural pleasant healthy scent, some people with allergies or respiratory ailments may want to avoid it.
