Use plantain leaves in a relaxing tea for treating coughs due to colds and flu. Plantain tea not only soothes sore throat and coughing, but also acts as a gentle expectorant to help clear phlegm from the lungs and nasal passages. Plantain is also useful in the treatment of asthma, allergies, and hay fever.
Plantain is a good addition to lotions, ointments, and poultices. Use for skin inflammation, sores, bee stings, burns, hemorrhoids, and slow-healing wounds. Plantain may also be used in gargles and mouth washes. Purchase dried plants or read more about plantain.
