The “balm of Gilead” (Genesis 37:25; Jeremiah 8:22), used medicinally in antiquity, was the mastic obtained from Pistachia lentiscus; it now commonly refers to buds of a species of North American poplar (Populus) used for inflammation and superficial skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, sunburn, rashes, insect bites and chapped skin, make cough syrups. In scientific journals, the balm of Gilead is cited for anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties, and has shown promise in some studies to help destroy cancer cells. More studies are needed, however.
