Sweet Birch is one of my 'go to' when I am formulating for acute pain.
However, please note, this should not be used on a long term basis, due to the high Methyl salicylate content and should ALWAYS be diluted.  Blended with St John's Wort infused, I always like to add Castor Oil to the synergy base as it is also helpful for pain.
 
Key constituents:
Methyl salicylate ............ 90.4%
Ethyl salicylate ..............   5.5%
Linalyl acetate  ..............  1.1%
 
As per Robert Tisserand (pg 215):
- Hazards: Drug interactions, inhibits blood clotting toxicity; high doses may be teratogenic. (Any agent that can disturb the development of an embryo or fetus.)
 
Safety Summary:
contraindicated with anticoagulant medication, major surgery, hemophilia, and other bleeding disorders. Pregnancy, breastfeeding. Should NEVER be used children.
People with salicylate sensitivity (which often applies in ADD/ADHD).
 
Caution:
External use ONLY.
Do NOT use undiluted on the skin.
Store away from children & pets.
