Description

The sticky, resinous buds of poplar trees have a long history of medicinal use and were called Balm of Gilead. They are best used fresh but are available only in the winter months before the buds open. These buds were picked frozen from freshly downed limbs after winter windstorms, hand cleaned and placed in bags and have been kept in the freezer still frozen. They are from Great Lakes Populous deltoides (Eastern Cottonwood) and Populous balsamifera (Balsam Poplar) trees. They can be used for making oils, tinctures or decoctions--most often for skin care, arthritis and muscle aches.

Balm of Gilead buds will be thawed shortly before shipping on a Monday or Tuesday by Priority Mail, so they don't sit in a post office. They should be used immediately for fresh bud medicinal value.
