White Willow, which has the scientific name Salix Alba, is a tree native to Europe and Asia. The bark of the White Willow has been used since ancient times in Europe, China, and the Middle East as a traditional medicine, and there are written accounts from Greek and Roman physicians from 2,000-3,000 years ago describing the pain and fever reducing properties of White Willow Bark.
Notably, White Willow Bark is commonly referred to as nature’s Aspirin, since a scientist at Bayer Pharmaceuticals derived Aspirin from White Willow Bark in 1899. That being said, Aspirin is not derived directly from White Willow Bark, but rather Aspirin is the result of Salicin, the active alkaloid in White Willow Bark, being put through several chemical reactions.
Even though White Willow Bark and Aspirin have a different molecular structure, since the former is natural and the latter is synthetic, the properties of White Willow Bark are roughly similar to Aspirin, and White Willow Bark is widely used as a natural anti-inflammatory and fever reducer.
Overall, White Willow Bark is one of the best anti-inflammatory herbal allies, and it is a must-have for any serious ethnobotanical collection.
