Douglas Fir

This week in honor of the upcoming holidays, we are talking about the empowerment of Douglas Fir and generation wisdom.The most important fact about Douglas Fir is that you cannot ingest, eat or drink it. Please do not use it in food or drink.

The Oil of Generational Wisdom is the PERFECT oil for Thanksgiving Week! It teaches you to learn from and VALUE others’ experiences, especially one’s family and ancestors. It encourages respect for elders and ancestral heritage. Douglas Fir reminds us that valuable wisdom can be obtained by learning from the past, especially from individuals who are older, wider and more experienced from ourselves.
