Uses: The aroma from the buds of the cottonwood tree are unmistakable. The sticky resins are either the bane or the bounty of folks who live with these trees. We harvest these buds in the cold, darkness of the middle of winter and slow extract them in grapeseed and olive oil yielding a dark, red, deeply healing oil. This oil is used in several of our preparations as well as for client custom formulas.
