As a remedy for occasional headaches or muscle pain, steep 1 to 1½ tsp. in one cup boiling hot water 10 minutes, drink one or two daily, as needed.

As an antiseptic wash, use a strong decoction of willow bark, made by simmering one cup of bark in a pint of water for 12 to 15 minutes. This wash is especially good for painful, hard to heal infections and abscesses. This also makes a good antiseptic wash for sweaty feet or gargle for gum and tonsil inflammations.

For an occasional diuretic, steep ¼ cup of fresh or dried willow bark in one pint of boiling hot water for twenty minutes. Strain and take in ½ cup doses throughout the day.

To relieve fevers, steep 1 tsp. of dried bark in one cup boiling hot water 10 minutes, take as needed. Also useful for soothing urethral and bladder irritability.

As a rinse to treat dandruff, simmer one cup dried leaves with ½ cup dried bark in one pint of water for two minutes. Use one to two cups as a rinse after shampooing.

Ingredients: Dried Willow bark (Salix sp.) wild harvested in Idaho.

Cautions
  • Avoid or use Willow bark cautiously if hypersensitive or allergic to aspirin or when taking blood thinning medications.
    Due to its high level of tannins, the use of Willow bark is contraindicated when kidney or liver dysfunction exists.
    The strong bitterness of Willow may cause stomach upset; in such cases, it can be combined with a small amount of Sweet Cicely tea or tincture.
