According to the Center, the Balsam Fir is abundant and nowhere near endangered, so we don’t need to worry about running out or damaging the ecosystem anytime soon. More importantly, the essential oil we use to make our products is distilled from the needles.
That is why our jewelry is so soulful and with its history. In addition, everyone can add their own meaning and make jewelry their personal symbol of good luck. While most people may not find the Fir too appetizing, it’s certainly edible and may help sustain you in an emergency (let’s hope it never comes to that!). The resin has also historically been munched on like a chewing gum.
