I have organic Balm of Gilead (from Colorado) as a very concentrated resinoid in a 1 to 1 mixture with shea butter. I am a herbal formulator and a Doctor of Oriental Medicine. The 2 ounce jars are filled with a very dense formulation, it has a thick consistency like smooth peanut butter. This concentrated 2 oz, jar will make a quart of finished product. It is $30- for a 2 oz jar. Rod Pereira, L.Ac., D.O.M.(970) 213-8090
