We've had to disable the website template for the blog as it interferes with the text display and causes bits of it to disappear completely.

It's a bit rough and unvarnished looking, but hey ho...:)

Plantago lanceolata, P. major

Plantain is cooling, diuretic and astringent and traditionally has been used to treat skin inflammations and sores.

In skin care preparations it is used as a paste compress. Used fresh it can be placed on insect bites and burns. Plantain also can be used to draw out toxins from wounds, and stem bleeding, and it can be incorporated into skin care products for conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.

Use an infusion of 30g plantain to one litre of water for skin care products
