Our Balm of Gilead Salve Ingredients are: Balsam sap resin, Rose of Sharon (Labdanum) from Israel, and Mint from Israel. With a hint of Myrtle from Israel, Frankincense, and Myrrh from Oman Israeli Distilled. Blended in a base of Pure Extra Virgin Jerusalem Olive Oil from Israel, Hemp butter and organic bees wax. This is one of the hardest oils to blend because this blend actually has a specific amount of each oil according the Hebrew texts of the Tanach and Hebrew texts of Jewish Sages. This is especially well kept secret like the Shemen sod of the Ketoret (Temple Incense blend).

The Balm of Gilead, is an aromatic resin used for medical purposes that was exported from Tyre and elsewhere. This is seen in scriptures where it is mentioned that the Ishmaelites (Arabs) who carried Yosef into Mitzrayim bondage were also Gilead Balm (resin sap from balsam trees) traders.

The liquid balsam called Balsam of Mecca is extracted from the tree Commiphora gileadensis (synonym: Commiphora opobalsamum)It is designated in the Tanach by various names: bosem, besem, ẓori, nataf, and, in Rabbinic literature, kataf, balsam, appobalsamon, afarsemon. It was used as a perfume and as a drug.

It was extracted both as the volatile component of the sap of the tree, and sometimes by boiling the stems and leaves. It was the only tropical tree to produce the most expensive, spice grown in Israel.

Balsam trees are native to the Gilead area in Jericho Valley. Incisions in the bark of a balsam tree yield three or four drops a day from each, and left to stand the balsam becomes of a golden color and pellucid as a gem. Balm was so scarce that the Jericho gardens yielded only six or seven gallons yearly, which was worth twice its weight in silver or gold.
Psalm 56 says “You have taken account of my wanderings; put my tears in Thy bottle; are {they} not in Thy book? In the ancient world, when a loved one died, mourners would catch their falling tears in a bottle and bury them as a token of eternal devotion.

Psalm 84 also speaks about Bacha (weeping) where it says ‘How blessed is the man whose strength is in you; in whose heart are the highways {to Zion} Passing through the valley of Baca, they make it a spring, the early rain also covers it with blessings. They go from strength to strength, {every one of them} appears before G-d in Zion.”

Tanach texts related with this oil can be found in: Genesis 37:25, Ezekiel 27:17, Jeremiah 8:22, Song of Songs 4:1, Song of Songs 6:13, 2 Sam 5:22-25.
