When asked about Idaho Balsam Fir, Gary Young replied,
“Idaho Balsam Fir is an oil that is very dear to my heart. I personally oversee the harvest and distillation of this oil from the balsam trees on the farm in Highland Flats, Idaho. It is a very versatile oil for the skin and can be
used much like Lavender.
