Balsam Poplar essential oil can be used for inhalation and topical use. In our opinion, one of the best ways to use this wonderful essential oil is to mix it with vegetable oil to a maximum concentration of 2% for use as an enjoyable after-sports application. Or, if you’re willing to spend a little more time, you can make a traditional “Balm of Gilead” type of salve.
According to Tisserand and Young (2014), Balsam Poplar Essential oil should not be used by any route by anyone taking certain medications, as explained below in the safety considerations.

I cant wait t work with this oil. It smells so sweet and fresh. I am planning on using it for a Balm of Gilead (seeing as my last 2 attempts with using the actual buds failed miserably before they even got to salve stage. lol)
