Make Your Own Soothing Skin & Joint Care Balm

  • Soothes minor skin irritations

The dictionary defines “balm” as a fragrant oil or ointment that soothes or comforts. Such is definitely the case of the aromatic Balm of Gilead buds. They’re traditionally made into a soothing salve or herbal oil for minor skin irritations and joint discomfort.

The buds of the Poplar tree have been providing soothing relief for over 2,000 years, and now we know why. Modern research reveals the buds contain salicin, the natural compound later synthesized into aspirin!

ALSO KNOWN AS: American Balm of Gilead, Balsam Poplar, Poplar Buds. Populus candicans is used interchangeably with Populus gemma, Populus balsamifer, Populus tacamahaca, and other Populus species.
