1 Lb Balm of Gilead Buds, whole Wildcrafted $87.74

Balm of Gilead, a name which referring to numerous herbal supplements and remedies, in this case refers to the plant Populus Balsamifera, or, as it is most commonly known, the Balsam Poplar. A hard wood native to North America, it has documented use going back to the early European settlers. Historically, it has shown use as being useful in creating friction fire sets, with ashes from fires being used in various hair cleaners and as a useful addition to cleaners for buckskin clothing. The native tribes of North America were also known to use the buds in treating sore throats, coughs, and other lung ailments. The winter-buds are also used to create the ointment from which it gets its name, the Balm of Gilead, which is used to relieve congestion. Today these traditional uses are still quite common, albeit the need for cleaning buckskin attire has dwindled somewhat. Herbalists still use the buds in creating Balm of Gilead to treat chest congestion, sore throats, and coughs, and have also found to be useful in treating rashes, cuts, and abrasions. This is a 1 lb packet of Balm of Gilead buds
