Thank you for visiting Herbs and Oils Hub!!
Plantain is truly a healing herb. You can crush the fresh leaves and press them directly on sores, small cuts, insect stings, and skin irritations like sunburn. Loriel explains that the healing properties of plantain come from its high concentration of allantoin, which you find in a lot of commercial salves and creams.
Loriel has a great recipe for Plantain Salve. She walks you through infusing the oil, preparing the beeswax and other ingredients, and combining everything into the final salve. Very nice recipe.
