Aspen has always been a popular wood for building across North American and Asia, because of its resistance to insects and molds, and continues to be used in saunas. It is not only used as a preservative in cosmetics, but also for its skin smoothing properties. High in salicylate, Aspen Bark was used as a tea-like drink for coughs, and its leaves were used as poultices for sore joints.
