A DIY Plantain Recipe For Rashes And Bug Bites

To read the story referenced, “Plantain: The Ugly Little Edible ‘Weed’ That Heals And Soothes,” click here.

Finely chop fresh plantain leaves and fill a small mason jar. Add sufficient glycerin to cover the leaves. Let stand for two weeks, stirring from time to time. Strain and store in a dark bottle. Makes a soothing and healing lotion for weeping and itchy rashes and insect bites. In times past, plantain was reputed to cure mad dogs and snake bites. Notes and dosages: Double strength tea, two teaspoons per cup for most purposes; take it freely

We still have a landline. We learned the hard way, no cell service unless you walk around outside. If I forget to charge the phone, again no cell service if we have no electricity. So we opted for at least a land line. We are the only one in our neighborhood, but at least our neighbors know and can come to our house if they can’t use their cell phone.
