The Balsam Poplar family, Populus sect. Tacamahaca, is a group of 10 poplar trees that grow scented leaf buds at the close of winter. Near our farm, you can smell this scent on the wind in February. Notes of vanilla, beeswax, and warm earth create a healing, fortifying smell that ushers in the spring. Resinous buds are solar-infused in organic fractionated coconut oil. Balsam Poplar oil is warm and comforting, and supports you through the darkness of winter.

In the diffuser: Place 2-5 drops in your diffuser of choice and enjoy.
When blending oils: Use as a middle or base note with tree oils. Acts as a natural binder to blend and give longevity to natural perfumes.
In skincare: This oil has some of the same compounds as willow, which historically has been used topically for aches and pains. Follow dilution guidelines and add to natural perfumes, salves, etc. For educational purposes only. This information has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
