Our Plantain Salve (the herb, not the banana) contains the whole herb, not just the oil extracted from the herb; many of the effective ingredients are to be found in the plant part rather than the oil, using the whole ensures that ALL effective ingredients are included in the product. We infuse the Plantain into oil, not extract the oil from the Plantain.
Benefits: (A Modern Herbal – Mrs. M. Grieve F.R.H.S.) “Rubbed on parts of the body stung by insects, nettles etc., or as an application to burns and scalds, the leaves will afford relief and will stay the bleeding of minor wounds.“
