Willow Bark?

I hope I don't make a habit out of posting only when I am sick, but yet again I have a cold. I've been
drinking various teas, but I just got some dried White Willow bark (Salix alba) from the local healthfood store. I've heard that willow bark contains Salicin, which Salicylic acid and Aspirin come from. I'm curious to see its effects on me. I was feeling a bit feverish, and now a bit better. Does that mean it worked? I will continue making tea with it, and will let you know.
