the sweet, sweet smell of the cottonwood trees in springtime

the rich red resin from the buds of the cottonwood trees can be used to make an incredibe healing salve sometimes called balm of gilead. My friend Linda Buffy makes a great one which she calls red bud salve. She collects the cottonwood buds herself and combines them with extravirign olive oil, st. john's wort, frankincense, and essential oil of birch - it is an excellent natural salve for skin irritation, wound healing, inflammation old injury pain & dry skin (eczema, psoriasis). I use it all the time and love it. here is where you can find it
