Choose your amount balsam tips: three ounces, one pound, or two pounds of clean, freshly cut, wild harvested balsam fir tips, or branches. They come from a pristine forest in New Hampshire, and are sustainably and respectfully gathered on foot, and using hand tools. They will be freshly cut upon your order.

Photos 3 - 6 show 3 ounces of balsam, photos 7 and 8 show one pound of balsam in a flat rate box, and the last two photos show two pounds of fresh balsam in a medium flat rate box.

Fragrant balsam needles are very versatile; used in teas, salves, vapor treatments, bath products, massage oils, infusions, incense, sachets, potpourri, and smudging. Drying them really brings out the distinctive balsam scent.

For many people, Balsam is the smell of Christmas.

They can be steeped in hot water alone or blended with white pine needles for a healthy tea.

These do not mail well in very hot weather. Please take this into consideration if you live in a hot part of the country and your order may sit in a mailbox where temperatures can get very high. Fresh greens can not withstand these conditions.

Medicinal uses of herbs can not be listed on Etsy but there is a lot of information available online about the traditional uses of balsam fir.

To dry them at home, you would spread them on a pan or drying rack and place in a warm dry place out of direct sunlight for a few days til crispy. You can dry them faster in the sun, but they will turn brown more quickly. Do not leave fresh balsam tips in a plastic bag unless dried, refrigerated or frozen.
