Description

Traditionally, willow bark was known to ease aches and pains and reduce fevers, and has long been used in Europe and China for the treatment of these ailments. Willow Bark is also mentioned as a treatment in ancient texts from Egypt, Sumer, and Assyria.
The first "clinical trial" with Willow Bark was reported in England, in 1763, when it was used to successfully treat malarial fever.

Use

The bark of white willow contains salicin, which is a chemical similar to aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid). Together with the herb's powerful anti-inflammatory plant compounds (called flavonoids), salicin is thought to be responsible for its pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effects.
Salicin was actually used to develop aspirin in the 1800s. The pain-relieving effects of white willow occur more slowly than aspirin, but may last longer.
