Poplar Bud Balm
Poplar Buds are a traditional remedy for aches and pains and inflammation, particularly for things like rheumatism and arthritis. They have been used over millennia. The bible refers to these buds as the Balm of Gilead, or Mecca balsam.
We have harvested buds from trees on our property. They are sticky and resinous and have a sweet camphory sort of smell. They have been infusing in certified organic sunflower oil. Now the gorgeous golden and aromatic oil has been strained and made into a very limited run of 15gram pots.
We would love to hear what you thought of it and whether you would like us to make more.
