The Wild Stuff
Balm of Gilead is a power house of healing. Made from the sap of the Balsam Poplar leaf bud, Balm of Gilead houses plenty of healing properties. It is a antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, an antiseptic, anti bacterial, and an expectorant. It is the ultimate for burns, and helps most to all skin ailments. Balm of Gilead was also traditionally used to treat arthritis and joint pain as it houses salicylic acid, which is a natural pain killer and a key ingredient in modern day aspirin.
