Salgueiro2

White Willow

Scientific Name:

Salix Alba L.

Properties:

It has become widely known after French and German chemists discovered a curious substance extracted from the plant and named it “salicin”. This was the starting point for the discovery of salicylic acid and the invention of the aspirine.

Because of its high concentration of salicylic acid, the willow is a natural peeler for the skin and also has anti-inflammatory and oiliness control properties.
