Bark Aspirin - the salicin you are looking for is contained in the inner bark of trees - willows (and related poplars), located between the rough outer bark and the hard wood. In the spring and early summer the bark will easily peel from tree branches in long sheets. At other times you can scrape the bark off using your knife. You can just chew this and swallow the juice. Or simmer 2 t. bark in cup of water for 10 mins, let cool, strain and drink. 3-4 cups of this tea can be consumed daily.
