About Salix

The Salix tree has many species. But its two types are more famous: Brittle Willow (Salix fragilis L.) and Musk Willow (Salix aegyptiaca L.).

Willows are plants in the form of trees or shrubs, with narrow oval leaves and sharp tips. In a number of these trees, the length of the leaves is short, and in some long leaves, they are even up to 16 cm long and 1 to 2 cm wide. Every year the leaves fall and turn green again in the spring. Their flowers, which usually appear in early spring, appear in the form of male and female ovoid or long stalks on one or two legs, upside down and next to the flowering branch.

Their fruit is in the form of a capsule, which blossoms with two valves in the last months of summer, and the numerous seeds that are inside each fruit and each one is equipped with a crown covered with silk warp and fluff, are thrown out and easily spread around by the wind.

The wood of most species of these tree is white and slightly soft.

The best type of Salix grows near water.

Most of them are used for basket weaving, but some of them are more suitable for this purpose than others, which are called basket weaving willows or Saules osiers, and some are not very suitable for this usage because their branches are brittle and fragile and they are used only in cases where there are no suitable types of Salix in the area.

In China, the decoction of young branches or leaves of Babylon Weeping Willow (Salix babylonica L.), which is widely planted in China, is used as a solution for washing abscesses, wounds and cases of skin problems. The decoction of young stems and roots of Babylon Weeping Willow is used in the bathroom to wash the body in cases of inflammation of the skin caused by parasites and fungi.

From Brittle Willow, a sweet substance is obtained which is a type of manna and is called “Willow Manna”, which has relatively similar properties to “Purgative Manna”.

The decoction of its bark, which is usually consumed, is prepared in the amount of 50 grams of bark per thousand grams of water, and one cup is eaten before each meal. Medicinally, the active substance of Salix is salicin, which is especially present in its bark. Salicin is a crystallized, colorless glucosidic crude formula of C13H18O7, which is soluble in boiling water, and because its external form is similar to quinine sulfate, it has long been thought that it is effective in eliminating Malaria fever. Of course, it has a little effect in reducing mild Malaria fevers, but it is ineffective when it becomes severe. This substance is odorless and very bitter.

Salicin glucoside is effective in controlling acute articular rheumatism if 2 grams are taken every 3 to 4 hours.

Willow Dosage

To reduce pain, fever and inflammation, soak a tablespoon of  its dry bark powder in a bushel (200 grams) of cold water for 8 hours and after straining, drink 3 pints every day. Because this mixture is bitter and astringent, it can be mixed with a little honey or other sweet fruit juice.

This herb should not be given to children under two years old, pregnant women, breastfeeding mothers, people younger than 16 years old who are suffering from colds, flu and chicken pox, people who are suffering from digestive tract ulcers and flatulence.

It is also harmful for the pelvis.

Side Effects of Salix

Aspirin may cause stomach and digestion disorders in some people, but most herbalists believe that its bark rarely has these side effects. If side effects such as stomach upset, confusion and ringing in the ears occur while eating its bark, immediately reduce the amount of consumption or stop eating it completely, the side effects will stop immediately.

If children under the age of 16 who have a cold, flu, or chicken pox take aspirin, they are at risk of developing Reye’s Syndrome, which includes potential risks to the brain, liver, and kidneys.

It has not been seen that people face the risks of Reye’s Syndrome when using Salix bark, but in any case, because its bark also contains chemical compounds like those in aspirin, caution requires. It should not be given to under 16 children who are suffering from colds, flu and chicken pox.
