- Soothing & Wound Healing -
Plantain is truly an incredible wound healing medicine. Plantain has the ability to "suck out" dirt, splinters, stingers, infection, venoms, and poisons from the skin. In this way, it should be one of the first remedies that you think of for all manner of cuts, scrapes, lacerations, puncture wounds, stings, insect bites, and all other manner of open skin injuries. The herb is also a mild but effective diuretic agent, providing it's astringent and mucilaginous properties to the mucosal membranes which line the urinary tract. This makes it highly beneficial for urinary tract infections where there is an excess of irritation, heat, dryness, and bleeding. Plantain effectively cools and sedates the heat and inflammation, soothes the irritation, moistens the dryness, astringes the bleeding, assists in drawing out the infection, and also provides an antiseptic action and a bit of local immune stimulation.
Suggested use: Brew as a tea by adding 1 Tbsp. in a cup of boiling water. Steep for 5-10 mins. Enjoy! *Increase dosage if needed. Make a poultice by soaking leaves in warm water and applying directly to the wound, wrap with bandage.
