Written by Amanda Klenner

Plantain  (Plantago spp.)  is a weed you have probably seen thousands of times and thought nothing of. It was called “white man’s foot” by Native Americans because it came across the sea with the Europeans and showed up wherever they set their feet on the ground. Plantain loves disturbed soil on the edges of sidewalks, old construction sites, dug up yards, and more. These often dry irritated landscapes with disturbed often poor soil where people walk a lot is where plantain pokes up. No wonder it is so soothing, both when growing and when used medicinally it helps try to bring things back to balance. It tries to nourish and repair the disturbed soil and ease its healing. In the same way plantain helps soothe, protect, and heal our bodies both internally and externally.

      No not yet. We haven’t found a way to make it the same price (or close) that we are offering in the US yet, and I hate to have you all feel like we are over charging. We will announce it when we are though!

    I got two of your herb boxes a couple of years ago and I loved it!
    I can’t find the plantain booklet that comes with the box and am wondering if you would please send me that recipe for the drawing salve?
