BLACK WILLOW BARK
Many refer to willow medicine as “herbal aspirin” - it contains the bitter pain-relieving compound salicin, which was the inspiration for and precursor to over-the-counter aspirin! Due to inflammation-soothing actions, mighty Willow may provide relief from many kinds of pain, including headache, muscle and joint, fever pain, and menstrual cramps. Beyond that, she inspires us to find flexible strength.
