Our Eastern Hemlock has a rich, deeper conifer aroma. It is great for blends during the holiday season because it adds a deep, soothing note.
Like most conifers, it provides support to the respiratory system and is a great expectorant and decongestant. It helps alleviate muscles spasms and cramping and has anti-inflammatory properties. This oil works well in sleep blends.
