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.
