April Herb of the Month: White Willow Bark

With a new month comes a new herb to learn that can potentially help you on your healing journey! 

Let's talk about pain for a minute. When your body sends pain signals, its a sign that something may be off of alignment and needs a little more attention. However, depending on the intensity of the pain, we may not be able to be as patient with our bodies because the main goal becomes: "Stop the pain! As quickly as possible!" 

It's easy to grab the first thing to grab relief, such as various aspirin brands and the like. But did you know that nature provides exactly what you need without the chance of damaging your stomach and other long-term side effects? 

Enter: White Willow Bark. Nature's Aspirin. 

It's natural pain-relieving qualities are contributed to a compound in it called glucoside salicin, which is what aspirin was synthetically created from. 

White Willow Bark not only relieves pain but also is a great herb to have in your natural first aid kit, as its antiseptic qualities can clean wounds. It also reduces fever and inflammation, as well as the relief from minor aches and pains associated with arthritis and heartburn. 

This herb is also one of our heavy hitters in Life Body's upcoming Inflammation Blend that will available for purchase really soon!
