Phytother Res. 2011 Jul;25(7):1102-4. doi: 10.1002/ptr.3386. Vlachojannis J, Magora F, Chrubasik S. Willow species and aspirin: different mechanism of actions. Abstract: Many believe that willow is the natural source of aspirin. However, willow species contain only a low quantity of the prodrug salicin which is metabolized during absorption into various salicylate derivatives. If calculated as salicylic acid, the daily salicin dose is insufficient to produce analgesia. Salicylic acid concentrations following an analgesic dose of aspirin are an order of magnitude higher. Flavonoids and polyphenols contribute to the potent willow bark analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect. The multi-component active principle of willow bark provides a broader mechanism of action than aspirin and is devoid of serious adverse events. In contrast to synthetic aspirin, willow bark does not damage the gastrointestinal mucosa. An extract dose with 240 mg salicin had no major impact on blood clotting. In patients with known aspirin allergy willow bark products are contraindicated. PMID: 21226125

Peir Hossein Koulivand, 1 Maryam Khaleghi Ghadiri, 2 and Ali Gorji 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 ,* Lavender and the Nervous System Abstract: Lavender is traditionally alleged to have a variety of therapeutic and curative properties, ranging from inducing relaxation to treating parasitic infections, burns, insect bites, and spasm. There is growing evidence suggesting that lavender oil may be an effective medicament in treatment of several neurological disorders. Several animal and human investigations suggest anxiolytic, mood stabilizer, sedative, analgesic, and anticonvulsive and neuroprotective properties for lavender. These studies raised the possibility of revival of lavender therapeutic efficacy in neurological disorders. In this paper, a survey on current experimental and clinical state of knowledge about the effect of lavender on the nervous system is given. PMID: 23573142

"I first tried Willow Bark Plus Concentrate six months ago when my 20 year old dog was going through a hard time with his health and was frequently barking for a few weeks at a time which was stressful and gave me a headache. This herbal concentrate gave me the minor pain relief I needed during this time while I helped my dog. It provides a general sense of relaxation and tension release. It has an interesting sweet flavor with floral tones from the lavender that I like. I just took it as needed for about a week and am glad I had this herbal supplement on hand to gently calm my system especially in my head." ~K.M., Florida
"I am sometimes prone to getting migraines. You who are also prone to getting migraines know that it starts with little wavy lines in front of your eyes. When that starts, I take 3 dropperfuls of the Willow Bark Plus Concentrate. In about a minute the waves have ceased. Throughout the day I will take about 5-6 times the 3 dropperfuls, until the migraine just gives up and disappears. This product is a pain saver for me. I love it."~ H.C., Clearwater, FL
