Item details

Loose balsam needles and twigs that are pruned from Maine Christmas trees are professionally processed and dried to make an exceptional filling that smells great, just like Christmas. Delivered to your door with free shipping included. The scent of balsam provides many pleasurable and soothing benefits. History documents it's use as a headache reliever, as well as a decongestant. Aromatherapy practitioners tell us the fragrance of balsam provides stress relief and helps to lift your spirits. For most people, the fragrance conjures memories of the forest, holidays, and festive times. The use of balsam pillows in the home provides a very slight scent near the pillow while affording the ever present opportunity to reach out and breathe in a long breath of the north woods. All the balsam products offered by The Maine Sales Company are filled with balsam fir needles and twigs that have been professionally processed and dried. Because of this process, the scent of our items will last for many years. If after, say five years, you want to rejuvenate your item, spray it lightly with plain water and the fragrance will be restored. Most people report that the fragrance of their pillows keeps going for ten to 20 years without rejuvenation. Folklore dating as far back as 700 years records the use of balsam. Native American uses most certainly stretch much farther into the past. Many tribes used the balsam pine to help with breathing problems. Many asthma patients find relieve by breathing the scent given off by balsam. Balsam can be a walk down memory lane for many. It reminds many of Christmas past, the smell of the Christmas tree. It also conjures up memories of times spent in the woods. When someone is unable to enjoy the natural pine in the forest, be it the inability to get out there anymore, or being shut in by the weather, it can be theirs for the taking by using loose balsam in pillows or sachets
