Willow Bark Tea is the original Aspirin. No, really! For at least a thousand years, people have been using willow bark to reduce fevers, inflammation, pain and whatever else ailed them.

Aspirin is actually derived from the bark of the Willow Tree, aspirin is a derivative of salicin, the primary painkiller in willow bark. Which means anything aspirin can do for you, from reducing cramps to helping prevent heart attack.

Primarily the tea I recommend is white willow bark, you can of course get any number of different kinds of willow bark, but the easiest and (in my opinion) most effective kind is white.

So What Does Willow Bark Fix?

Acne:

Willow bark extract can be found in loads of natural cosmetics because it reduces inflammation, but it’s also an astringent. It contains salicylic acid, which is a common ingredient in most acne medications.

Headaches:

Willow bark tea reduces tension-based headaches and while it doesn’t work as fast as say, aspirin, the effects, at least for me, can last hours longer rather than the hour or two of relief I get from a tablet.

Like aspirin, drinking willow bark tea can help prevent heart attack. A daily low-dose of aspirin a day can prevent heart attacks and stroke.

Menstrual Cramps:

This is the reason I use Willow Bark Tea. I get terrible cramps. So I start drinking it two or three days before my period comes and then through till the end of my period. No more problems.

Weight Loss:

There’s been some evidence that suggests that willow bark tea can help aid weight loss when combined with a healthy diet and exercise.
