Healing Properties: Known as "Witches Aspirin", White Willow is actually the active extract ingredient in store-bought Aspirin. It is wonderful for pain relief and is usually consumed as a tea or tincture.
Willow is also used to treat fevers, inflammation, arthritis, neuralgia and even weight loss.
White Willow Bark is best used in chopped form rather than powdered and is slower to work but longer lasting than Aspirin.
