White Willow Products

Since the ancient period the bark from the White Willow tree has been known for being effective in reducing symptoms from common bodily complaints. In its pure natural form Indigo Herbs offers you this highly effective ingredient in two distinct products; White Willow Bark Powder and White Willow Bark Tincture. 

Texts found in ancient Egypt, Sumer and Assyria have shown that these civilisations had knowledge of White Willow bark and its properties. The Greek physician Hippocrates was probably the first to make this ingredient well known in around 400 BC. His prescription of chewing on the bark is the first illustration of white willow use and is similar to contempory consumption of common aspirin. The Chinese also knew of the use of white willow bark along with evidence suggesting some Native American tribes also collected bark of willow trees. During the Medieval period the use of the bark fell out of favour and nearly disappeared into obscurity. It wasn’t until 1763 that Reverend Edmund Stone in Oxford, England rediscovered white willow properties and popularized its use. Later in 1828 the pharmacist Henri Leroux and chemist Raffaele Piria successfully separated the active chemical constituent Salicin from White Willow bark and Aspirin was born.

The White Willow is a medium to large deciduous tree that can grow from 10-30 meters in height. It has grey to brown bark with a pale leaf that is slightly lighter than most other Willow trees because of a fine covering of white hairs. White Willow is dioecious meaning that there are both a female and male tree which are pollinated by insects. The flowers extend on catkins which eventually mature on the female tree into pods which contain many seeds that are covered in a fine fluffy down that aids dispersion on the wind.

White Willow Bark Powder from Indigo Herbs is a 100% natural pure herbal powder from Salix alba bark. With a long history of traditional use, White Willow Bark Powder can be infused in boiling water and made into an herbal tea.

At Indigo Herbs we are passionate about premium quality botanicals. Explore the tabs on this page to find out more about the quality, manufacture and suggested use of this herbal powder. We are unable to advise you here on the benefits of our herbal products, however we do recommend you take the opportunity to research the many benefits of this herb. At Indigo Herbs we are committed to empowering optimum health and nutrition and assisting you to take responsibility for your own health and wellbeing, by having access to many of natures healing botanicals. Please consult a Herbalist as to how this product can benefit you.

Using Herbal and Superfood powders on a daily basis is simple, easy and can be really delicious. The simplest way is to rehydrate the powder in a little filtered water to make a shot, this can easily be prepared once, twice or three times per day if you are taking the herbs therapeutically. However sometimes the herbs can be bitter so the botanical powders can be added to a superfood smoothie instead of just water. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk. Alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices. 

Additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties. The powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended, shaken or stirred until fully mixed with the liquid. Any true Superfood smoothie disciple would advise that the list of possibilities is endless with the goal to feel great and potentially replace a meal with this glass of super goodness. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Powders page.

Another option is to use a Capsule Machine that can be bought from the Indigo Herbs website. Filling capsules with your favourite herb has never been easier when you buy a Capsule machine. You can then be sure that the capsules you are taking are 100% pure ingredients without fillers added by some companies.

White Willow Bark Powder can be made into a tea, by infusing in boiling water for 10 minutes.

Serving:

1-2 tsp of herbal powder per 1 cup of boiling water, up to 3 times per day.

1 teaspoon equals 2 grams (1 tsp = 2g)
  • Produced to GMP standards.
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.
  • Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
  • Re-sealable air tight, foil pouch.
  • 100% pure botanical ingredients, absolutely nothing added.

Manufacture Process

Indigo Herbs White Willow Bark Powder derives from White Willow trees whose bark is cultivated specifically for use as White Willow Powder. The bark is collected from mature White Willow only and dried out of the sun until crisp and ready to be broken down. After it is completely dry the bark is milled down into a fine powder and made ready for testing. Testing consists of looking for pollutants and heavy metals to ensure that this powder is in its absolutely purest form. After testing the powder is made ready for shipping. This whole process complies with GMP standards and is quality assured by Indigo Herbs.  

Do not take if pregnant or breastfeeding. Do not take if allergic to Aspirin. If you are taking herbs such as Ginkgo and Garlic, or any Diuretics, Platelet Inhibitors, Anticoagulants or are on any medication that contains Bismuth Subsalicylates, Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDS), Metoclopramide, and Carbonic anhydrase inhibitors, you should not take Willow Bark in any form.

As a pain killer it works well for me. I often combine it with medicinal mushrooms, make a tea out of them and slowly drink it down.

Good it helps with pain. I have to be careful not to make the tea too strong (not more than 3 - 4 teaspoons per cup) or it makes me cough. That might just be me! Experiment with it.

Taking herbal remedies in a Tincture or Fluid extract preparation is simple and easy. The tincture can be measured out in a small ml measuring cup, medicine cup or spoon, and the tincture can be taken directly.

However some people do find the bitter tincture taste to be too strong, so it may be a good idea to dilute the drops in water or fruit juice. For children, the elderly, those with a sensitive constitution or those avoiding alcohol, the alcohol can be evaporated from the tincture. This can be done by putting the drops in boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes to evaporate. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Tincture page.
