For anyone looking at using herbs for natural healing, salves are a must have in the medicine chest. This simple plantain salve has many uses. At our house it is used for bug bites, burns, scrapes, cuts, rashes, and chapped skin.

Plantain is a very soothing herb. More than that, it pulls out infection while healing, which is why it has so many great uses. We have successfully used it to prevent infection as well as clear up an infection that set in already. During the summer we use it constantly on mosquito bites….it even works on hard core bee stings!

I'll admit I was quite nervous when I tried my hand at salve making, but I will tell you that salve is very easy and very forgiving. I'm going to walk you through the process and you'll not only be able to make plantain salve, but any herbal combination of your liking.

If you're interested in learning more about herbs and would like to know who I recommend, check out my Resources page.
