The reassuring and rejuvenating aroma of Poplar Balsam Essential Oil was first used by westerners who encountered Native North Americans in Canada. The elixir was given as a peace offering, and it reminded the Europeans of the Balm of Gilead of biblical fame. Poplar Balsam is also referred to as Canadian Balm of Gilead, as it is completely reminiscent of the ancient aroma even though this particular species of tree has no scientific ties to the Middle East.

Poplar Balsam Essential Oil is known to improve the appearance of scars and relax redness. This sweet, wood-scented resin is an aromatic woodland beauty perfect for perfumes and colognes. With a few drops of our Poplar Balsam Essential Oil, you may notice that breathing becomes a joy.

Extremely potent, just one drop will do! 

When it comes to choosing essential oils, there's so many brands to choose from. And yes, it can be extremely confusing which brand to trust as there are so many essential oil brands that label it as "one thing" when in fact it is not 100% pure, or a combination of the 100% pure essential oil combined with synthetic fragrance oils. I hear this time and time again with certain brands. Living Libations, on the other hand, are completely transparent with all of their essential oils, ensuring they are authentic and pure and distilled only from the named plant matter. Furthermore, many distributers and marketers use terms such as “Grade A,” “therapeutic grade,” and “aroma-therapeutic grade” to describe their oils. Yet, these are words without meaning. No organisation, association, or commission monitors the purity or quality of essential oils, and there is no universal essential oil grading system in place. Be aware. Each essential oil has specific components that make it distinctive and authentic, and there are published standards defining these profiles. For over 20 years Living Libations have nurtured personal relationships with artisan distillers and family farmers around the globe so that we may secure authentic oils and extracts that are purely and fairly produced.
