The use of White Willow was originally mastered by the Native Americans, found to be using the bark as a pain relief. It is high in the active ingredient salicylic acid, a naturally recurring aspirin. It is often called “herbal aspirin”. This acid lowers the body’s levels of prostaglandins, hormonelike compunds that can cause aches, pain and inflammation.
