Plantain: The Little Big Weed

The Plantago — more commonly known as the ‘plantain plant’ — is often mistaken for a weed and killed, but it actually has many medicinal properties.

Plantain contains constituents that promote wound healing, speed up cell growth, and soften skin. It's a mild anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antihemorrhagic and an expectorant. Plantain can act as a sedative, antiseptic, antiviral, antihistamine, anti-inflammatory, and antiheumatic. It's a powerhouse of an herb.
