Holiday Season With doTERRA's Douglas Fir
The essential oil of Douglas Fir is almost completely made of molecular compounds with a monoterpene backbone. The functional groups found in Douglas Fir oil are mostly alkenes, which are groups of carbon atoms linked together by double bonds. Douglas Fir also contains trace amounts of alcohol and esters. This oil’s five primary chemical ingredients are beta-pinene, alpha-pinene, delta-3-carene, sabinene, and terpinolene. The qualities and advantages of these specific elements are listed below.
