Think Christmas tree and you will know what a Norway Spruce looks like. Get sick and you may wish you had one growing nearby. The young shoots are used to make a tea. When warm the tea acts as an expectorant to loosen and bring up congestion; when hot, it can promote perspiration which is your body’s way of getting rid of toxins. Norway spruce is a natural remedy for cold, flu, and bronchitis and has some calming properties to help. I never know when to call something a spruce or a pine; I still don’t but spruce is a species of pine so you sometimes see them listed as Norway pine. If you know a gardener, the kit I suggest on this blog makes a great gift. If you have children and want to tweak their interest in growing things, it makes a great project for children. If you decide to plant one, remember, it’s big. It can eventually grow to over 100 feet.
