Skin Stick - Tacamahac


Skin Stick - Tacamahac


Few ancient remedies have stood the test of time, but here’s one that I’ve revived to rave reviews. Tacamahac (tak-uh-ma-hak) is a long-forgotten word referencing balms and medicinal preparations, such as this all-purpose salve, made from the resinous healing buds of the poplar tree.

Every Spring I wait for a storm before gathering fallen poplar branches and infusing the buds in oil for a full moon cycle. An old herbalist trick, this length of time lends itself perfectly to a cold extraction, infusing all of the juicy, moisturizing properties of the buds into the oils, and maybe a little moon magic along the way.

Prairie people tell me they won’t go through another winter without it. Packaged in a compostable stick for ease of use, keep it at hand to soothe dry hands, lips, elbows, soles, or any weather weary bits in need of extra attention.
