Willow Tree For Health And Healing

Willow… just the sound of the word is mysterious and otherworldly and gives off a feminine energy … but did you know that it is also actually HEALING?

For more than 5000 years the glorious Willow tree has been used as a powerful pain relief remedy to the degree that she is widely known as botanical medicine. So let’s have a look at why Willow is known as a ‘Miracle Drug’…

Willow bark comes from the willow tree and boasts a compound called salicin, which is similar to Aspirin. It has been praised for its wonderful pain-relieving properties for centuries already. Many cultures have used this to relieve pain, inflammation, and fever, and it is a staple of both traditional Chinese medicine as well as Ayurvedic healing.

Willow bark has been touted to safely treat a host of pain disorders, including headaches and pains in the joints – it has been used to treat rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis by health practitioners worldwide.

White Willow for Your Soul

People tend to believe what they think they see, and while this tree looks dainty and sweeping, its roots have been known to burst pipes! 

These roots are sunk deep into spirituality; weeping willow is a symbol of fertility and new life. 

Most unusually, a willow branch can be planted and a new tree will grow from this. This is a powerful spiritual lesson for all of us, to learn to adapt, to learn to ‘grow where you are planted.” It is a reminder to us, that inner life is as important as outer. It tells us to surrender to nature, and to listen to the natural flow of life within. 

So… if you find a willow tree, this is your cue to get closer and listen… really listen. Feel. Be. LIVE.

If it is good enough for the ancient Egyptians as a remedy for gout and rheumatic joint diseases, it is good enough for us: we use white willow bark in our joint care capsules. 

This joint-enhancing blend is made from 6 all-natural, and certified organic anti-inflammatory ingredients like turmeric, white willow bark, moringa and plant-based vitamin D. We packed all this Earth-given goodness into capsules, created to improve the quality of life for sufferers of joint pain and enhance the range of motion of stiff joints by reducing pain, inflammation and stiffness in the joints.

Turmeric, the superstar ingredient (as always!) is lovingly mixed with black pepper extract to help with absorption and bioavailability. We have included a plant-based vitamin D which will give you 100% of your daily Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) per recommended dose.


As usual, we would never taint our capsules with any preservatives, fillers, binders or anti caking agents, and you can trust that all ingredients are certified organic and vegan friendly, including the capsule shell. Honestly, these little capsules are your ticket to joint heaven!
