PLANTAIN LEAVES (available in June)
Sold by the ounce
Plantain: one of the nine sacred Herbs, is an old English Charm of the 10th century AD. The charm is intended for the treatment of poisoning and infection, made into a salve, poultice, or other.
Plantain male or female has its own qualities. The male is the long narrow plant Lanceolata. The feminine plantain major, resonates with venus, an earth element plant used to strengthen, heal and protect. Plantain is rich in calcium, and vitamins K. She is astringent which helps to dry up the excess, aid in ulcers, IBS, and internal hemorrhoid relief. Traditionally plantain was used in Asia to treat liver disease and stomach disorders.
Apply crushed plantain to insect bites for instant relief, poison ivy, rash and burns.
Plantain is delicious in soups, salads, and stirs fry and drank as a tea, with a bit of bitterness to it.
