This plantain, native to Europe, is not to be confused with the starchy banana. Plantain leaves are valued for their anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antiseptic, astringent, demulcent, mucilaginous and refrigerant properties. Its active constituents include: mucilage, flavonoids, phenolcarboxylic acids and saponin. Plantain helps to soothe inflammation and irritated tissues. It is a superb herb used in salves to treat wounds and damaged skin. It can be used as a poultice and/or salve for boils, bee stings and other insect bites, hemorrhoids and poison ivy. Plantain can also be boiled in milk, strained, cooled and applied to sunburn.
