There are so many plantain plant benefits! What some may dismiss as common or even a pesky weed is actually a powerhouse of medicine. Plantain leaf can help to soothe a range of complaints from itchy bug bites to irritating coughs to persistent wounds to an inflamed gut.

You’ll come away from this with a great overview of this versatile herb’s many gifts, tips for plantain identification and lots of ideas for working with plantain safely and effectively.

You’ll also receive instant access to a plantain leaf tea recipe so next time you (or someone you love) needs some healing and soothing relief for their digestive tract, you’ll be prepared.

Show snippet:

“Plantain is an obvious choice for many first aid or acute inflammations, but it is equally useful for chronic hot conditions, especially in the digestive tract.”
