Observations and Anecdotal Information
White Fir has a history of medicinal use among many Native American tribes of the southwest. It has been used as a tea or decoction. The sap (resin) has been applied as a wound dressing and even to fill tooth cavities.
The aromatic properties of white fir boost the immune system. Inhaling the essential oil can relieve symptoms from respiratory infections, flu, staph, bronchitis, rhinitis, and coughing.
White fir stimulates cleansing of the lymphatic system, has a balancing effect on the endocrine system, and is a laxative when taken internally (at the proper dilution rate).
