★2020 POPLAR BUD COLLECTION IS HERE! ★
Poplar buds are a botanical treasure that only come out in the late winter/early spring. The buds have a beautiful fragrance which is sweet and reminiscent of honey and vanilla.
The poplar buds in this collection were wildcrafted from the wild Rocky Mountain forest range in Fernie, BC by members of my family (thanks guys!).
Poplar contains salicin which converts to salicylic acid in your body, a compound used to make aspirin. It is a wonderful plant ally for pain support and inflammation.
Traditionally Poplar Buds are made into Balm of Gilead (look it up on google, so many amazing uses!) as a massage balm for it has a warming and soothing action on sore aching muscles and joints as well as for carpel tunnel, bruising, tissue damage, and arthritic pains. It has skin healing properties for wounds and cuts and can also be used as a chest rub for respiratory issues such as coughs, congestion and headaches!
That being said, this collection focuses more on the scent and sensual side of Poplar. All of these products are quite fragrant and a little goes a long way!
