Weeping Willow || Emotional Release || Organically Grown Ethically Harvested
1 cup of dried Willow leaves, Salix babylonica
Grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers & ethically harvested during the waxing moon in Oregon's Willamette Valley.
Medicinally, Willow bark contains salicin, the precursor to salicylic acid, which is used to manufacture the active ingredient in Aspirin. Willow bark is in fact one of the plants from which Aspirin was originally made, thus, willow has an anti-inflammatory effect in our body, making it useful for muscle and joint pains, fever pains, and gout.
Energetically, it is associated with the Water element and the Moon. It is used in drawing or strengthening love, healing, and overcoming sadness. When you feel you need a really good cry, having a bath with willow in it is a positive way to release this energy. All parts of the willow guard against evil and can be carried or placed in the home for this purpose. Good for dream scrying and soothing for frights and worries.
