My favourite plant, Greater Plantain (Plantago major) is just emerging again.
I use it to staunch blood flow from cuts, which it does very effectively. It also contains allatoin which is found in human DNA and promotes cell growth and re-generation. Some Hay fever sufferers find relief from the congestion symptoms by chewing a leaf. If you have skin irritation such as an itching insect bite, plantain juice applied to it will give almost instant relief.
The native people of North America referred to it as “white mans footstep” because it wass introduced by European settlers and spread across the country with them.
