Plantain leaves are anti-inflammatory, demulcent, astringent, and vulnerary (wound healing). Plantain is a common weed in lawns, fields, and gardens and should not be confused with the banana-like plantain fruit (Musa spp., Musaceae) of the tropics. Plantain is used topically on insect stings, spider bites, cuts, bruises, rashes, and burns. The leaves can typically be found throughout the year and be used as a fresh poultice when needed. You can employ any species of plantain—each will have its own personality but share similar overarching medicinal qualities. ~ For our first aid and healing recipes featuring plantain, join us for our Online Herbal Immersion, the most comprehensive online program in DIY herbalism there is!
