Crafted from tree to tin, this salve embodies the essence of dedication and care. Following a windstorm in April, I ventured out in search of fallen cottonwood tree branches, returning home with an abundant harvest of juicy spring buds. These fresh, sticky buds were infused into an organic cold-pressed olive oil over six weeks, laying the foundation for this therapeutic salve.


Poplar buds, also known as cottonwood buds, are a host of remarkable herbal properties, both for topical and internal use. Through oil infusion, their antibacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities are extracted, creating a potent remedy that I personally adore for nourishing dry skin, tending to minor cuts and bruises, soothing sore muscles, and even alleviating itchiness from mosquito bites. It's a multi-purpose salve to bring along on any adventure. Intentionally made with love and care.


Certified organic or wildcrafted ingredients of poplar buds (Populus trichocarpa), cold-pressed olive oil, local Montana beeswax, vitamin e oil, essential oils of lavender and rosemary
