The Balm of Gilead Herbal Salve is made from hand picked buds from the Black Poplar Tree, long known to the Blue Ridge mountain people as Balm of Gilead or "Gilly Buds". Enhanced with Infused Oils of Wildcrafted St Johns Wort and Arnica.
Balm of Gilead is traditionally used as a soothing relief balm for comforting minor aches and pains of Arthritis, Tendonitis, over exertion, Bursitis and many other painful skin conditions. This Balm is also a comforting chest rub for Colds and Flu. This is a healing salve that people send us new uses for all the time with their personal testimonials. When Europeans first came to North America hundreds of years ago North American native people shared this balm with the newcomers for all types of discomforts. The English settlers named these healing buds “The Balm of Gilead” after the “Healing Balm of Gilead” that are mentioned in a Psalm in the Holy Bible because these tiny buds had so many uses for healing discomfort at a time in history that predated modern medicine.
The buds are infused for several weeks in organic olive oil and then filtered Birch, Eucalyptus, and Marjoram essential oils to create a wonderful soothing balm useful for many skin and body conditions.
