Balm of Gilead Salve/ Poplar Bud

(5 customer reviews)



A blend of 5 medicinal plants specifically chosen for their healing properties.

  • Traditionally Poplar Bud Salve / Balm of Gilead was used as a treatment for inflammation and superficial skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, sunburn, rashes, insect bites and chapped skin.
spring poplar buds (Populus balsamifera), Willow leaf and inner bark (Salix sp), self-heal (Prunella vulgaris), yarrow (Achillea millefolium), plantain (Plantago major), extra virgin olive oil, sunflower oil, and beeswax.




An elder taught me about the wonderful “sticky buds” from the cottonwood tree. Walking by a cottonwood one day on the edge of her property she spoke about a powerful medicine she made for her livestock and herself as a young woman. This wild poplar bud herbal salve is infused with spring poplar buds(Balm of Gilead), spring willow inner bark, plantain and yarrow, all of which are known to have excellent healing properties. The fresh scent of poplar buds the this salve reminds one of a walk through a deciduous forest in spring. This balm is a favorite remedy to sooth windburn or frostbite after a long winter’s day of fun.

  1. Mardell

    Absolutely love this salve! I developed a mysterious painful, itchy, blistery rash on my hands, the poplar salve soothes, softens, and heals without stinging. I love it. I bought the small sample pack of 4 and now I am coming back to buy a bigger container.

  2. Marliese Pasay

    Balm of Gilead SalveI used this product on dermatitis on my hands and I couldn’t believe how well it healed after a week of applications. Better than the prescription steroid cream!

  3. Deirdre

    Great product, no chemicals, smells lovely, heals…..cracked thumb skin in the winter.
    The kind of skin crack that feels like a razor when you hit it. This Balm took the nasty
    ouch out of it almost immediately. Will recommend and be buying more.

  4. Crystal

    My brother gave this as a gift, and it was my go-to for my babies’ diaper rash and drool rashes on their cheeks. This works better than any zinc baby bum cream I’ve tried.

  5. Nancy

    This stuff is the best. I use it on sunburns, shaving bumps, heat rashes, anything. It smells great, isn’t greasy, and my skin loves it.
