WHITE WILLOW a/k/a European Willow
The bark of the WHITE WILLOW tree contains salicin and is used as a pain reliever and anti inflamatory. White willow appears to bring pain relief more slowly than aspirin, but its effects may last longer. People take WHITE WILLOW BARK instead of aspirin because it does not appear to be as irritating to the stomach lining. It may be because the salicin found naturally in WHITE WILLOW BARK is only converted to the acid form after it is absorbed by the stomach.
As well as using WHITE WILLOW BARK as an anti-inflammatory, it is also a fever reducer, analgesic, anti-rheumatic, and astringent. WHITE WILLOW BARK is known to relieve headaches and to ease pain associated with inflammatory conditions like rheumatoid arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome, osteoarthritis and low back pain. It is also used to treat the symptoms associated with bursitis, menstrual cramps, migraine headaches, tension headaches and tendonitis.

For the most part unless mentioned otherwise, each tea bag will make 3 to 4 cups of tea; If loose herb tea,two ounces will make about 23 cups of tea . One ounce of just an herb is about a sandwich bag, and sometimes a little more. If it is a root herb such as burdock root it is heavier, thus an ounce would be about a quarter of a sandwich bag. Comfrey, plantain and nettle leaves would be in a quart size bag.
