Balm of Gilead Oil

This oil is undoubtedly the most unique and sought after item in our collection. This product has the most extensive number of uses including its use as an anointing oil for religious services, sacred rites, healing, and hospices; however, it is also widely used as a wonderful skin treatment for difficult skin issues. This oil is used by some customers as a base for personalized perfumes.

We adore the smell and working with these fantastic ingredients. This oil brings us so much pleasure each time we process a new batch of Balm of Gilead Oil. We reap the benefits of peacefulness, and joy from the minute we bring a new bunch of buds into our studio. The scent of this oil has a sweetness, which is both clean, earthy, and hauntingly fragrant. Everything in our studio will carry this scent for weeks and weeks after processing this oil. Some customers have told us that they find this one oil very intense. We passionately love our Balm of Gilead Oil, and others must love it too.  This oil is hands-down our company's most significant selling product. Pound for pound, we ship more Balm of Gilead Oil than any other product. For the last three years, we have doubled our raw wild-crafted bud order each year as more and more of you become addicted as we are.

We only use fresh buds, not dried, frozen, or dehydrated. These are the buds of balsam poplar trees which secrete a powerfully aromatic and healing resin.  We begin each year with the freshest crop of buds from the most remote area in America and a place free from pesticides, herbicides, and pollution to provide our most excellent wild-crafted buds.

These young buds of balsam poplar trees secrete a powerfully aromatic and healing resin high in salicylic acid, the active ingredient in aspirin.  Balm of Gilead Oil is analgesic, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory, and useful for massage, skin care, bath oil, and aromatherapy.

All ingredients used in the creation of this product were sourced with great care and are either wild-crafted or grown under the supervision of a certified organic farmer. This statement means that we purchase items grown without the use of GMO seed, pesticides, herbicides, or other poisonous chemicals, and that is the definition we use to determine quality.
