Our Poplar Balsam Essential Oil is created in the tradition of the Native North Americans, who used the bark of this hardy tree to treat deep wounds, decrease pain, clear congestion, and alleviate symptoms of arthritis and rheumatism.
The amazing anti-inflammatory properties of this oil can be traced to its high level of a-bisabolol, a compound that may decrease muscular and cell inflammation in the body.
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.
