February Calendar – Feb 9

Have you tried making willow bark tea yet? If so, what do you think of the flavor? Even though it can be a bit bitter, I like the flavor, it has a hint of cinnamon to it, don’t you think? If the flavor is too bitter, you can add some honey to the tea to sweeten the flavor a bit.

Did you know that willow bark contains plant growth hormones? They are called auxins and a strong decoction of the bark can be used to help root cuttings of other plants and herbs!

    I’ve only tried it once, and I didn’t like it much. It was a long time ago, and I only tried it because of a headache. But I might try again 🙂

    next time, maybe try a weaker decoction? it may take more to do the job but be a bit less bitter.
