Plantain

Plantain is my friend. When I'm itchy from a mosquito bite, I rub some of her leaves on my skin and she takes the itch away.

I like to make salve with her leaves. I soak them in olive oil and mix with beeswax. Great for dry skin and chapped lips.

Wasp bites are no bother with plantain around either. The juice from her leaves brings relief.

And she grows all around me. Plentiful.

Thank you plantain.
