White willow bark (Salix alba) Its wispy leaves and graceful form have graced landscapes throughout Europe and western Asia for millennia. Evidence suggests its use in ancient Egypt for pain relief, with written records from Greece and Rome praising its medicinal properties. Traditional Chinese medicine also incorporated white willow bark into their treatments.

Medicinally, white willow bark is the most used part. It contains salicin, a compound like aspirin, which is responsible for the bark's pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effects. Throughout history, people have used it to treat headaches, fever, and muscle aches.

Culinary uses for white willow are less common, but not unheard of. The young shoots and leaves can be boiled and eaten, though their flavor is quite bitter. In some cultures, bark has been used as a flavoring agent or a bittering agent in beverages.

Magickly it was associated with the moon and water, and thought to promote healing, divination, and protection. The willow's flexibility and resilience have also made it a symbol of overcoming challenges.
