What White willow Is:

Every time you open up the medicine cabinet and reach for an aspirin to relieve a headache, a hangover, or the pain of an arthritic elbow, you owe a big debt to this tree. It's been used to combat pain and treat fevers for some 2,500 years. Some say that meadowsweet was the first herb from which Bayer, back in the late 1800s, derived its synthetic acetylsalicylic acid—aspirin to us. That may or may not be true, but other members of the 300-strong Salix clan— including crack willow (S. fragilis), purple osier (S. purpurea), and violet willow (S. daphnoides)—have higher concentrations of this natural pain reliever. The inner bark of the white willow tree, however, is often credited as the original and most frequently used source of it. White willow, with its long, thin, finely serrated leaves, originated in central Asia and Europe but is now naturalized over a good portion of eastern North America, as far north as Nova Scotia and as far south as Georgia.
