Willow Bark

(Salicii cortex)

Willow is an integral part of Hebrew, ancient Greek, Egyptian, Chinese and many other traditions, and as much as it is used for rituals, it is also used in traditional medicine. Our ancestors were aware of the power of willow tree, but they could not explain it. For centuries, willow has been an indispensable ingredient in pharmacies – ever since Hippocrates, who recommended it as early as 400 BC, against fever and inflammation, as well as Aula Cornelius Celsus, Pedanius Dioscorides, Gaius Pliny and Galen of Pergamum. It was not until 1829 that humanity came to know what is so healing about willow.
