There’s one herb that I wish everybody knew, especially you, because it’s awesome for first aid like bug bites, bee stings, cuts , scrapes, and all that, gut health, tooth infections, and even respiratory health. The herb is Plantain. No, we’re not talkin’ bananas here. We’re talking about Plantago major. A cool little plant that grows in your sidewalk cracks, along roadsides, and pretty much in all of the places that we as humans have come in to disrupt nature.

  • First Aid: Plantain has this cool little compound called allantoin, and it helps to regenerate cells, pretty cool, eh?

  • Did someone get a little cut or scrape?
  • Little Buzzy Bee get a little too close and sting you? Yup, make yourself a little mash up (poultice) of plantain and plop it right on there. The same thing goes for spider bites, bug bites, snake bites, and all those pesky bug bites. Y
  • Splinters, or maybe there’s a Thorn literally in your side? You guessed it, plantain can help with that too!

  • Burns, they suck, right? This is where The AfterBurn really comes in Handy!
