Balm of Gilead Infused Oil (Balsam Poplar)

Populus balsamifera

Description

Wildcrafted cottonwood buds/twigs infused in Organic Cold Pressed Olive Oil over several months. (Olea europaea)

One of our all-time favorites, this lovely oil is characterized by the sweet, balsamic aromas of the organic cottonwood. This calming and soothing product is useful on so many levels and has a deeply nourishing effect, calming physical inflammation and soothing emotional tension! The North American Indian tribes traditionally used the resinous buds of the tree to treat a variety of skin and lung ailments.

Suggested qualities and applications include:

  • Support joints and muscles
  • Antispasmodic
  • Bruising
  • Healing of scars and wounds
  • Swelling
  • Cooling
  • Analgesic
  • Antimicrobial
  • Burns

Balm of Gilead can be used alone or added to other carriers. It is recommended as a lovely massage oil! Add helichrysum infused oil or the essential oil along with german chamomile essential oil for an injury blend. A lovely salve made with balm of gilead is easy to make and comes in very handy.

Directions: Melt 1/4 ounce of beeswax in 1/2 ounce of jojoba oil. When almost melted, add 1.5 ounces of balm of gilead oil. When melted, remove from heat (double boiler) and add essential oils if desire. Pour into small 1/2 ounce size PET jars and keep handy for small emergencies.

Great carrier for pain and/or inflammation blends
I'm on here to order more and now see that it's out until this fall (2015). I'm so angry with myself or not ordering a larger bottle last time! I'll know to order at least double the amount this fall! This is WONDERFUL in pain blends and I can't imagine making one without it!
