The best for pains
by Lin on Sep 17, 2014

I have used white willow bark for many years, for almost any pain I have. I'm unable to take Aspirin, Ibuprophin or Tylenol, due to their side effects, which are for me...internal bleeding. I had no other choice but to find an herb, I could use instead.

White Willow works...period, it has always worked for me, internally and topically, it has always been safe for both uses, much safer than aspirin would be for me, even aspirin applied to my skin, causes bleeding internally for me.

I use it in capsule form, tea, and poultice or salve. Combined with Arnica in oil/salve or poultice it is a great pain reliever for muscle pulls and arthritis pains. When willow doesn't take all the pain away, I use St. John's Wart in combination with it, topically and/or internally. I hope this in some way will help others to make a decision about using this herb for pain.

I was thinking of taking this internally for acne, since it has salicin which I think is related to salycyclic acid used in acne face wash? Do you think that would work? Is it safe to take daily?

    According to "The Green Pharmacy Herbal Handbook" you can take it daily and it may help with skin problems. If you search online you can also read of people using it topically, mixed with witch hazel to help with acne. Good luck!

Willow Bark Tincture
by Terry Hall on Mar 8, 2013

@Marybelle Harris: Thank you! So Willow Bark Tincture takes about the same time to work as acetaminophen, ibuprofen, and aspirin w/o the side effects!

Willow Bark Tincture
by Marybelle Harris on Aug 24, 2012

The tincture doesn't taste very good, but it is very effective at easing my aches and pains. For me the time for the tincture to take affect is between 10 and 20 minutes.
