Plantain Leaf | Organic | Kosher
In the world of natural remedies, Plantain Leaf often gets overshadowed by its flashier counterparts. Yet, those who've been kissed by its tender touch know that this herbaceous perennial is a treasure trove of healing wonders.
Historically, its broad, ribbed leaves have been the salve to many a bee sting, burn, and rash. Rich in allantoin, it accelerates wound healing, reduces skin inflammation, and stimulates the growth of new skin cells.
