White willow (Salix alba) is a tree with a long history of medicinal and spiritual use. Known primarily in the Western world for its bark, which contains salicin (a natural precursor to modern-day aspirin), the white willow also has spiritual associations rooted in various traditions. Here are some spiritual properties and uses attributed to white willow:

Healing: Given its medicinal properties, white willow is naturally associated with healing on a spiritual level. It might be used in rituals or spells to promote emotional, physical, or spiritual healing.

Protection: Traditionally, willow branches or twigs were believed to ward off evil spirits or negative energies. They might be placed around a home, used in amulets, or incorporated into protective charms.

Moon Magic: The willow tree, including the white willow, is often associated with the moon, water, and feminine energies. It's considered a powerful tree for moon rituals, especially during the full or new moon.

Divination: The branches, leaves, or bark of the white willow might be used in divination practices, such as scrying or reading runes. Its connection to water and the moon bolsters its association with intuitive insights.

Dream Work: Some believe that keeping willow leaves or bark nearby or under a pillow can stimulate vivid and prophetic dreams.\

Fertility and Growth: The willow's propensity to grow near water and its flexible branches symbolise growth, adaptability, and fertility. It can be incorporated into rituals or spells intended to foster these qualities.

Emotional Balance: Just as the white willow's bark addresses physical pain, on a spiritual level, the tree is believed to help soothe emotional pain, aiding in achieving balance and peace.

Wisdom and Knowledge: The ancient Druids viewed the willow as a tree of enchantment and wisdom. Its association with water elements underscores its link to deeper emotions and the subconscious.

Transitions and Death: In various cultures, the willow tree is seen as a bridge between life and death, making it a symbolic tree during transitional rites.

As with all spiritual practices involving plants and trees, it's crucial to approach them with respect and a genuine intention to connect with their essence. Also, if considering the internal use of any plant or tree substance, always be aware of potential side effects and consult with experts or knowledgeable practitioners.
