Cottonwood Bud Salve

10.00

Cottonwood bud was a new medicine to me this March (2018), and I’ve been getting to know it ever since. What I find is that this resinous, naturally fragrant plant medicine is INCREDIBLE at easing muscle tension. I notice it the most on my face, where I know I have chronic tension and I continually work to relax and release. I have been massaging cottonwood bud oil into my face every night for almost three months now, and it is stunning actually. With the cottonwood bud oil, I can’t even tense up my facial muscles if I want to. They just have to relax! My prayer is that it helps relaxation be a real habit, instead of the familiar habit of tension, and it is happening, slowly but surely, my muscles remembering how to relax. If you want to learn more about cottonwood bud, google it! There is some good info and cool stories out there on the interweb. 🌿 I got some really, really *dank* cottonwood buds from Farmer Bill, a local guy here, via my friend Alex (www.arisebotanicals.com) from a cottonwood tree that had to come down, which means that I was able to make enough cottonwood bud-infused olive oil to share with others, and then I made that into salve. 🌿

Each two-ounce jar of salve comes with guidance for harvesting + the recipe itself, so that next spring you can make it yourself, if you so choose.
