This salve is handcrafted from the resinous buds of Balsam Poplar tree, found in the forests of north west BC. The powerful healing properties of this amber coloured resin and intoxicating scent of honey, caramel and amber, make it our choice tree medicine for sore muscles, dry skin, psoriasis, eczema, cuts and scratches. Its natural aromatherapy affect is enchanting and perfect for rejuvenating spirits.

Our approach to gathering botanicals from the wilderness is with utmost care. During late winter and early spring, we head to the forest to collect precious buds from fallen trees and branches. Wildcrafting requires patience, respect, and adherence to our protocols. We hope you appreciate the unique nature of these botanicals and our sustainable harvesting process.

"Populus Balsamifera" is also known as the tree of the people. The word Populus in latin means people or citizen. We most definitively feel this when working with this tree.

One of the most beautiful days of the year is when the trees start to leaf out and the smell of the resin floats through the air. This aroma is often nostalgic for many people, reminding them of being a child.

In our tiny northern cabin you will always find several jars of Poplar buds infusing in oil. It is one our main body, mind and spirit care botanicals we use regularly.
