Did you know that Willows are from Persia?
They followed the rivers till they are now indigenous to most of Africa and Europe.
Clogs are often made from Willow wood for two reasons, it is light and once the seasoned wood comes into contact with water for the first time the pores close permanently, never to absorb water again. Cool isn’t it – and light 😉
You can use willow bark for head aches and other inflammation, asperin was named after it.
