When you knock on the trunk of an Ironwood tree it will be VERY SOLID hence the name “Iron wood.” Ironwood contains anti-inflammatory compounds guaiaretic acid and guaiaconic acid. Which is why it was used historically by herbalists to treat gout, inflammation and arthritis.
Energetically Ironwood is known for promoting positive energy and strength which many of us need in these tough times.
Go knock on the trunk of an Ironwood whenever you need to remind yourself how tough you are!
You are always MUCH stronger than you think!
