Analgesic, Antibacterial & Anti-Inflammatory Oil
Organic Ingredients, Chemical-Free & Cruelty-Free
Karen's Botanicals Balm of Gilead Oil is an all natural therapeutic oil that has analgesic, antibacterial & anti-inflammatory properties.
One of the prime ingredient used in the Balm of Gilead Oil, is the buds from the Balsam Poplar tree. The young buds of the Balsam Poplar trees secrete a powerfully aromatic and healing resin high in salicylic acid, which is the active ingredient in aspirin. In the spring, the buds of the Balsam Poplar tree begin to ooze with yellow green sap that yields a lovely sweet and clean scent. For centuries, the sap of this tree has been made into analgesic oils and is known for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Balm of Gilead oil is one of the first infused oils that Karen learned to make back in 1981 while she was living in Kodiak, Alaska.
