5 ml – Poplar buds naturally produce a sticky substance called salicin. During distillation, this substance is infused into the oil – along with its medicinal benefits. Salicin is traditionally believed to be a natural “aspirin”, offering pain relief and anti-inflammatory benefits for the muscles, organs, and the skin.
In addition to pain relief and medical applications, Poplar Buds Absolute offers targeted anti-inflammatory action for the skin. According to author Jennifer Peace Rhind, this oil inhibits an enzyme in the human skin known to cause inflammation. When exposed to UV rays, this enzyme, known as HLE, can cause inflammation that leads to skin damage like wrinkles.

These beautiful blossoms are the key ingredient in some of the world’s most expensive perfumes and elixirs.

Chemical components of this sweet-smelling oil include linalool, beta-caryophyllene, methyl eugenol, and beta-elemene. Champa is an aromatic masterpiece that is luxurious in its depth of bouquet.
