Balm of Gilead (Cedronella canariensis)

Balm of Gilead – Cedronella canariensis

Balm of Gilead – Cedronella canariensis is not the true Balsam of Gilead which is, of course, a rare tree, but an interesting American herb with the same strong tangy scent of balsam. If kept in a pot, the scent can act as an effective insect repellent. Requires winter protection.
