The Balsam Poplar family, Populus sect. Tacamahaca, is a group of 10 poplar trees that grow scented leaf buds at the close of winter. Near our farm, you can smell this scent on the wind in February. Notes of vanilla, beeswax, and warm earth create a healing, fortifying smell that ushers in the spring. Resinous buds are solar-infused in organic fractionated coconut oil. 5ml amber glass bottle.
Balsam Poplar oil is warm and comforting, and supports you through the darkness of winter. This oil makes a particularly good binder for our evergreen oils (Cedar, Western Hemlock, and Douglas Fir) to create natural perfume.
In the diffuser:Place 2-5 drops in a candle or steam diffuser and enjoy. When blending oils: Use as a middle or base note with tree oils. Acts as a natural binder to blend and give longevity to natural perfumes. In skincare: This oil has some of the same compounds as willow, making it a soothing rub for aches and pains.
Avoid this oil while pregnant, or if you have a sensitivity to aspirin. Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears, and sensitive areas. Not for internal use.
