balm of gilead twid with bud Balm of Gilead Buds
Populus balsamifera

Burning the aromatic buds of this large tree, associated with Jupiter and commonly grown in the US, is said to attract spirits for purposes of necromancy or divination. This herb is also used in Hoodoo to bring together estranged lovers. You can extract the resin by simply filling a jar of the herb with olive oil and letting macerate for a few weeks (add a couple drops of vitamin E for a preservative). This would make a great oil of consecration, which is what it is most often used for, or a perfumed oil good for love magic. This herb has become very difficult to source and quite expensive for some reason.
