Black Spruce Tips (Picea mariana)

Found in our Cascadian Forest blend

History: Used widely amongst Indigenous populations, they made teas with the tender needles which were believed to soothe coughs, colds, and congestion. Washes made from spruce tips were applied to rashes and sores, while the resin was used in wound balms for its potential antiseptic properties.

Interestingly, when the French arrived in Quebec, they developed scurvy over winter while the Indigenous peoples did not. They were taught to make spruce tip infusions full of Vitamin C to ward off the ailment.
