The Poplar Tree is renowned by the Dene for its healing properties for thousands of years. Its bark is rich in salicylic acid (the active ingredient in Aspirin) & the buds contain a very fragrant sticky reddish resin that has both strong analgesic and antimicrobial properties, making it a natural treatment for upper respiratory coughs and colds as well as sore muscles & joints.

Our Poplar Bud Salve is created by hand picking fresh poplar buds during the spring season and then seeping them in a custom blend of organic oils to extract the resin. This resinous oil is then mixed with beeswax to create a medicinal balm that can applied to the skin. 

**Did you know - we are not the only ones who love tree medicines. Honey bees gather the resin from poplar buds to use in the making of propolis; a protective waxy-resiny substance they use to fill cracks in their hive to keep infections and rot at bay. **
