Cottonwood balm is ancient medicine for modern times. It has been used by
Native Americans and Europeans for millennia. It is often referred to as "Balm
of Gilead."

Balm of Gilead has been believed by some to “Ease the plight of the
broken-hearted, bring peace to the home, and to ease problems caused by jealous
co-workers and false friends.”

Practically speaking however, it is a serious topical pain reliever for sore
muscles, joints and inflammation. The salicylates found in cottonwood are
relatives of aspirin. It is also anti-microbial, anti-fungal and stimulates
skin growth such as for burns and bruises. These properties give the cottonwood
balm a huge range of uses including soothing dry skin. And of course there is
the sweet honey-like aroma of cottonwood.

This was a recent customer review: "This is THE BEST Cottonwood Balm EVER, I
would NEVER find myself without it. It works immediately to take away sore
joints, achy muscles and neck pain. There is lots of love in this balm."

The black cottonwood trees native to the Northwest are the largest and tallest
of all the poplar species. Its big sticky buds are highly desirable for natural
healing balms, salves, face cream and body butter. My husband and I collect the
native black cottonwood buds in the late fall and early winter from recently
fallen branches. I do not use dried buds as they are much less effective than
the fresh or fresh frozen buds I use in my products.

I infuse twice the normal amount of the resinous buds into organic olive oil
at controlled temperatures over a period of many weeks. I do this to ensure
good results. I do not add vitamin E as the buds themselves are antioxidants
which prevent spoilage.

Mixed with beeswax the resulting pain relieving balm is a true pleasure to
apply to those aching muscles, joints and things that hurt.

This large 9 oz. jar is intended for use by skin care and other professionals
in their practice. Because of its volume, this jar is also a bargain for
regular users of cottonwood balm.
