Ribwort Plantain

Apparently I am obsessed with all of the herbs. I get so excited when talking about all of their amazing qualities 💚
Ribwort is amazing for cuts, grazes, burns and stings. Specifically bee stings!
It’s also great for…
🌱Hay fever! I use it in my herbal blends to soothe the inflamed mucous membranes in the nose that hay fever causes
🌱Chew up a leaf of Ribwort and put it on an aching tooth while you wait to go to the dentist.
🌱Put the leaves in your shoes to soothe sore aching feet.
🌱Make a poultice by mashing up the leaves, put onto a grazed knee or splinter and cover with clean cloth (handkerchief, bandage, muslin) to draw out the splinter or dirt.
🌱 squish and hold on skin after being stung by stinging nettles.
Apparently it’s lovely in a stir fry too as it has a lovely mushroomy taste. I have to admit I’ve not tried that yet, but I can’t wait to try it 😋
