In some circles plantain is regarded as a weed, but it’s actually one of the best healing herbs on the planet.
Plantains have a long history of being used as food plants and healing herbs in many diverse cultures around the world. The Native Americans used it to heal wounds, cure fever, and to draw out toxins from stings and bites, including snakebites.
Broadleaf Plantain is a staple in the apothecary and can used as a leafy green in soups and salads.
Use plantain in salves and balms. (We use Plantain in our Calendula & Cannabalm). This is a soft, leafy variety good for culinary use.
Its easy to collect it’s seed for next year’s garden too!
