What is Black Cottonwood?
Found throughout western North America from sea level to middle elevations, this rapidly growing tree (formerly Populus balsamifera subsp. trichocarpa) resides in wet forests and along waterways from Alaska to California. At lower elevations west of the Cascades, black cottonwood often grows in large stands in the bottomlands of large streams and rivers. East of the Cascades its range is limited to protected valleys and canyons. Warming and stimulating resins in the buds stimulate lung secretions to expel mucus, speed the healing of infections, and increase the circulation of blood to the exterior. Take the tincture in hot water to clear the lungs of hard stuck mucus that causes rattling unproductive coughs, to stimulate circulation to promote sweating and bring blood and warmth to the surface of the skin and extremities, and to help resolve nonviral lung infections. Bitter salicylates in the buds and twigs reduce inflammation and relieve pain. Rub the oil on sore muscles and strains. The bud oil combines well with hairy arnica and/or Saint John’s wort oil to reduce joint swelling and to ease the pain and inflammation of carpal tunnel syndrome.
What is an Absolute Extract?
An Absolute Extract or Tincture, is a more refined plant extract whereby plant material is subjected to a secondary solvent extraction process with ethanol. The solids (waxes, oils, fats, and so on) dissolve in the alcohol.The alcohol is then removed through a process of evaporation. The remaining “essence” is called an absolute and it is the most concentrated form of fragrant & herbal material. Unsurprisingly, it tends to be the most expensive process and is largely claimed for use in the fragrance and health & beauty industry.
Our Black Cottonwood Absolute Extract is highly concentrated and is designed to be added as an ingredient to other home-made or commercial relief topical products - or - to be diluted in 8 ounces of liquid per 1 tsp. as an oral medicament.
