    Hmm, at that price I should harvest some. After all I live in Canada and there is a Christmas tree farm just down the road, and they might have a few Balsum Firs. How hard can it be?

    Surplus Shed http://www.surplusshed.com/ still has Canada balsam (item no. B1077A) available at 1/4 pound for $25.00. As I recall, it was cheaper several years ago.

    The 100ml is out of stock and the 25ml doesn't ship to Europe. Thanks anyway!

    The link is my local branch of this company. It seems expensive.

    Perhaps they have a branch in Denmark?

    Hope this helps.

    It is big companies who lead the way with no air postage policies with liquids!

    Actually, I am researching for a non-Denmark based person and a private person has suggested his help. Will report back on actual product (basic liquid balsam, without xylene). I fear that the dried balsam will have lost some important important natural solvents.
