White Willow Bark Properties and Information:
Native to North America, northern Asia, and much of Africa, the willow is a low-growing deciduous tree bearing long, green, tapering leaves and catkins in spring. Bark is stripped from young trees in the spring for use in herbal medicines. Native American healers used willow bark long before Columbus or the Vikings landed. The conversion of willow bark to aspirin began in 1828 when German chemist Felix Hoffmann isolated the active ingredient and named it salicin. In 1899, the Bayer company began manufacturing and selling a modified form of the willow bark chemical acetylsalicylic acid, or aspirin. This first of the modern miracle medicines has been a mainstay in the treatment of joint pain ever since.
White willow bark is approved by the German Commission E in supporting joint health, as well as for alleviating occasional headaches in healthy individuals. It is traditionally used as an all-purpose pain reliever and anti-inflammatory.
**Do not use willow bark if you are allergic to aspirin, and do not give willow bark to a child under sixteen years of age who has symptoms of any kind of viral infection, especially flu or chickenpox.**
Whtie Willow Bark is documented to have been used as early as 5 B.C., White Willow Bark Extract (Salix Alba) shines out as a gentle skin care giant, packing a wallop of a punch when targeting problem zones, all the while staying sympathetic to those sensitive areas.
Anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties delicately tend to sensitive skin issues like rosacea and psoriasis, yet battle valiantly with hard core acne, calluses, even warts. A potent controller of sebum, it helps to unclog oily pores, which in turn prevents acne. An energetic yet unabrasive exfoliator, willow bark helps to remove those dull, lifeless skin cells, revealing the youthful, radiant skin you’ve got underneath. This also discourages wrinkles, skin spots or discoloration, promoting a more even skin tone. Overall, willow bark charms your true, flawless and glowing complexion to reveal herself.
The active extract of the bark is salicin, a form of salicylic acid. You may know of a chemical, lab created version of salicylic acid – Aspirin. That’s right, this stuff is the all-natural, original pain killer! Beyond being impressive for skincare, willow bark also makes its mark on headaches, sore muscles and fever. Simply put, the ancient texts of Egypt, Assyria, and Greece got it right when they explored this remedy
