Description

Harvested from the fallen branches of cottonwood trees in our front yard and a nearby arroyo, we extracted the good medicine from the balsamic resin of the leaf buds. Cottonwood (alamo en Español) buds are rich in salicin, a naturally occurring pain reliever that your body coverts to salicylic acid, the precursor to aspirin. This is one of our simplest recipes: cottonwood buds infused in olive oil pomace and beeswax. What it lacks in complexity it makes up for in pain relief.
