Did you know that Aspirin is comprised of salicylic acid, which found in high abundance in Willow tree bark? If you can find a Willow tree of any kind, you can make an “aspirin” tea and drink it.
Here’s how to do it: You take a piece of the bark about the size of your palm, wrap it in a coffee filter to make it look like a tea bag and put it in boiling water for no more than 20 minutes.
If you’re concerned about damaging the tree, the author below assures us that the bark will heal very quickly. Also keep in mind that it doesn’t have a long shelf life and that salicylic acid becomes dangerous to use if concentrated.
