Health Benefits of Aspen Poplar Bark Powder

–  Aspen Poplar Dried Bark Powder is mildly diuretic.

–  The bark contains salicin, a glycoside that probably decomposes into salicylic acid (aspirin) in the body. This herb is therefore anodyne, anti-inflammatory and febrifuge.

–  As a cholagogue it stimulates digestion and especially the function of the stomach and liver (when there is anorexia).

–  It is used especially in treating rheumatism and fevers, and also to relieve the pain of menstrual cramps.

–  It is also used for the treatment of arthritis, gout, lower back pains, urinary complaints, digestive and liver disorders.

–  Aspen is used to treat chilblains, hemorrhoids, infected wounds and sprains.

–  An infusion of the Aspen poplar bark powder is considered to be a remedy for coughs and an appetite stimulant.


The powder can be used as a flour. This is normally mixed with other flours for making bread etc and can also be used as a thickener in soups. To make an infusion, 1-2 tablespoons of powdered aspen in a tea infuser or teapot or mug for each cup of tea you intend to brew. Cover with boiling water. Place on the lid (or cover your cup with a saucer). Allow the mixture to steep for 10' to 15' minutes or overnight. Then strain the tea and serve. Drink 1-3 cups of tea a day. Add if you want honey, milk or lemon wedge for flavour.
Aspen seems to be safe for most people when used properly. It  contains a chemical that is very similar to aspirin. This chemical, known as salicin, may cause a reaction in people who are allergic to aspirin. In any case you should consult with your healthcare doctor before using any herb especially if you’re taking other medications or having health problems.
