WILLOW (Black or White)
(the black is the only variety that grows naturally in east texas, it
has the same properties as the white)
Collect in the Spring as the leaves begin to come out, or in the Fall
as the stems are bright red. Collect the tender new growth/ red twigs.
Try to get the bark totally dry and then powder it, you can actually
powder the whole little twigs for use. Taste the branch tips before you
collect them - if they are bitter/acrid, use it. If not bitter/ acrid,
find a different tree.
Make a strong decoction 2:4, to be drunk freely...results said to last
a long time. Take 1 or 2 double ought (00) capsules of the powdered bark
up to 4 times a day.
The so-called Catkin or Ament, meaning the flower-like thing that
hangs down is an "anti-aphrodisiac" TO CALM SEXUAL DEVIANTS, for which
purpose David Winston in New Jersey uses it regularly.. if details are
needed, Gloria can provide his number to get more information.
John Lust agrees that the catkins are sexual sedatives, using an
infusion. He adds that a fluid extract may be made of the bark to
achieve the same results as with the White Willow Bark. Both barks
alleviate pain and reduces fever and inflammation. It also has
astringent qualities and it used for internal bleeding... is also a
diuretic for gout and "articular rheumatism". He says "it is even said
to be good for heartburn and stomach ailments...a decoction can be used
as a gargle for gum and tonsil inflammation; as an external wash for
eruptions, sores, burns, and wounds; and as a footbath for sweaty feet.
A deodorizing liquid can be made from a solution of Willow Bark mixed
with Borax." But he says to only take 1 cup of the decoction a day, a
mouthful at a time and that a cold extract can be made by soaking 1
tablespoon of the bark in cold water for 8 to 10 hours before straining.
David Hoffman's Herbal Handbook reminds us that any connective tissue
inflammation anywhere in the body would require a deep treatment which
should include Willowbark and is especially efficacious for "rheumatoid
arthritis" especially used with Black Cohosh, Celery seed (and he lists
2 other herbs I don't know). And he points out (with my 100%
concurrence) that a tincture (2 - 4 ml three times daily) may be made
and would work as well as a decoction.
