Handcrafted Cottonwood Tincture: (Populus spp)

Cottonwood are known to be analgesic. They contain salicylic acid (which is what aspirin is made from) and this can help to relieve pain. The traditional people of North America used Cottonwood for lung and respiratory health. Another action and benefit of Cottonwood is its antimicrobial effects. Herbalist Michael Moore stated a tincture of the buds is a powerful expectorant for thick, mucus from bronchitis that's difficult to control, as "it has both expectorant aromatics and analgesic salicylates". It is strong tincture and probably best to consume only a few drops in a glass of water. This tincture should only be taken for short periods of time.

Cottonwood are incredibly soft trees, so when there is a wind event, some of their branches break off. This is an exciting time for herbalists, as we will gather these, and carefully remove each bud for either tincturing or/and an oil infusion.

Infused with LOVE. ?
