Poplar is used as an ingredient in herbal cough medicines. It is also used to loosen chest congestion and as a stimulant.
Poplar can be applied directly to the skin for sores, bruises, cuts, pimples, external hemorrhoids, frostbite, and sundburn.
The sticky resin of poplar buds contain salicin which your body converts to aspirin. Poplar buds infused in oil make a healing remedy for muscle soreness and headaches.
The smell is very heady and quite exotic.
