About the ingredients:
Balm of Gilead Cottonwood Buds:
Balm of Gilead acts as an anti-inflammatory. As an example - Balm of Gilead acts in a similar way to aloe when applied to sunburn, as it can quickly suck out the heat and itchiness due to the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds found within this powerful oil. Similarly, when Balm of Gilead is applied to areas affected by arthritis, it can reduce inflammation, effectively eliminating pain as well. The sticky resin in these buds contain salicin which your body converts to aspirin.
Use regularly for dry skin and pain relief by massaging into the affected area(s). External use only. Store in a cool, dry place. Avoid keeping in direct sunlight. If melting occurs, place in the refrigerator to re-harden.
Do not use on open wounds or broken skin. If you are pregnant, nursing or on any medications, check with a qualified healthcare professional before using herbal products. Avoid getting in eyes, nose, mouth or other sensitive areas. Do not use if you are allergic to aspirin or have an aspirin sensitivity.
