True Balm of Gilead was a type of Myrrh resin, Commiphora opobalsamum, which used to be found outside of Mecca in Arabia.  It is now considered to be extinct, as the resin has not been seen for at least a century.  The buds of the Poplar trees, Populus candicans, are now called Balm of Gilead because of their alleged healing ability and resinous aroma.

Balm of Gilead is used by many people in various parts of the world for centuries for skin complaints.  Balm of Gilead Buds are derived from a species of the poplar tree, Populus candicans, which is indigenous to North America where it is better known as the cottonwood tree. The resinous, aromatic unopened flower buds are harvested and made into dried herbs. These buds are then used as an ingredient in ointments and skin creams; the actual amount of Balm of Gilead Buds in such ointments is usually about 15 - 20%.

Balm of Gilead may cause allergic reactions in those who also have aspirin allergies.
