Insect bites .. plantain can be used to treat the itch and irritation of insect bites. Simply chew some plantain leaves and apply to the bite. I have used fresh and dried plantain leaves for tea. Usually, I mix it with dry Chaga I also have and it is delicious.
Plantain is great for healing cuts, scratches, treating bites and other skin irritations, such as rashes and eczema and chicken pox. During the summer, I collected a lot of plantain and then infused it in olive oil for several months. Today, I made a Plantain Salve with added lavender and peppermint essential oil. This salve is perfect for travel, in a purse or a pocket and it is a must have for parents with kids. I will be uploading pics soon and make this salve available to you.
