Balsam Poplar Essential Oil is steam distilled from the delicate buds of the deciduous Populus balsamifera trees which are native to the wide expanse of forests in Canada. The Balsam Poplar Tree is also called The Balm of Gilead tree after the legendary salve of that name. It has a fresh, resinous but sweet, balsamic invigorating wood like aroma. The oil is now widely used as an ingredient in soaps, perfumes and other cosmetic products.
The process of wildcrafting the buds used to make Balsam Poplar Essential Oil is very labour intensive and it takes a lot to make a small amount of oil.
