White Willow Bark (Salix alba), contains the glucoside salicin, an effective painkiller, related to aspirin from which acetylsalicylic acid (Aspirin) was first derived. The Salicin is excreted in the urine as salicylic acid and related compounds. This ability renders this tea useful for kidney; urethra and bladder irritability’s and acts as an analgesic to those tissues. It has a reputation for reducing inflammation and working as an astringent. With natural white willow bark, this valuable nerve sedative can have the same benefits of aspirin, without the dide effects. Willow is used to reduce fevers; minor aches and pains of the body as it works on inflammation; is an excellent source of magnesium; helps to calm the nerves; and may be used for first-aid (wounds and abrasions).
