Bough and Balsam~ Healing Hand Balm
Theee most heavenly hand balm I’ve ever made. And credit goes to the balm of gilead ... which is basically poplar buds we harvested in the spring that had been infusing in Olive oil since! The smell is completely intoxicating yet soft and subtle.One of my favourite smells in the world! The poplar buds lend so much healing to the blend! This balm also contains copaiba balsam and balsam fir which are powerful anti-inflammatories so this is excellent for arthritis in the hands as well!
Caution: if you have any aspirin allergies this potion may not be for you as poplar buds have similar natural compounds called salicylates.. (which are anti-inflammatory... aka.. the original aspirin!)
