  Poplar Balsam (Balm of Gilead), 10% Dilution (no ratings yet)
Populus balsamifera, organically distilled from the sticky springtime buds and twigs, by a gifted Canadian distiller.Diluted in Fractionated Coconut Oil


Our rare and precious Poplar Balsam essential oil, in a 10% dilution in Fractionated Coconut Oil.

Rhiannon Harris highly recommends this oil for skin healing and wound healing. She also discusses its use as an anti-histamine and as an alternative to German Chamomile when preferred, since both are high in alpha bisabol. She also recommends it for wound healing, as mentioned earlier for bruises and skin tears. Blending with Helichrysum and Yarrow oils can give amazing results for healing scars.

It is both antispasmodic and analgesic, a recommended pain reliever for injuries, sore muscles, rheumatism and arthritis.

The buds themselves, infused in oil, have been used by North American healers for millennium to ease pain, and heal damaged skin. It is not always safe to assume the same uses for the distilled oil as for the infused herb, but the producer swears this oils is amazingly effective.

Dr. Joie Power recommends Balsam Poplar essential oil for bruises, sprains/strains, sore muscles and injuries to the skin. Balsam Poplar essential oil is also antispasmodic and has an analgesic effect, and reduces tension. One of Balsam Poplar essential oil's most noted effects is for reducing scaring and for wound healing. For use in treating injuries and for treating rheumatism and arthritis, blend Balsam Poplar essential oil with German Chamomile and Helichrysum essential oils.

Emotionally I would venture that the oil would be comforting and strengthening…a help in time of trouble.

I’ve seen recommendations that it blends well with all of the “blue” oils, with Helichrysum for healing purposes, of course. I think it would give a lovely depth and structure to any floral.

Available undiluted, and in this 10% Dilution in odorless Fractionated Coconut Oil. Recommended shelf life of this base note oil is said to be up to 10 years with proper storage. I suspect that, like Myrrh and some other balsamic oils, if left unsealed the volatiles will evaporate and leave you a bottle of rock hard resin.
