Yesterday, while rollicking on the sunny hillside wildscape of a my new humble abode, I tripped and fell (gracefully of course) and scraped several layers of skin off my palm. Now, us herbalists are a wickedly grusome bunch and find joy in the chance to treat a new wound ....... so off I went to the herb cupboard to dig through the oils, ointments, tinctures and teas to see what "spoke" to me.
I could write volumes on this weed and it's magnitude of uses, others have, there's no need for me to. Today I'll cover making the Fresh Plantain Leaf Infused Oil. I use the oil for healing skin scrapes, scratches, itches and rashes, to check bleeding, to ease wound and muscle pain.
