Wednesday word of the week – Salacin

treesSalacin is a bitter substance with analgesic properties, which can be obtained from willow bark.

The trunk you can see at the right of this picture is our willow. If you’d like some salacin, please come round and help yourself to a branch as it could do with pruning.
