Simple Green Plantain Salve
by a smart reader
- 12 oz. jar of Vaseline
- 2 handfuls of Plantain leaves
- 1 large or 2 small aloe leaves, sliced and crushed
Heat Vaseline on the stove on low, only enough to liquefy. Carefully drop the Plantain leaves into the liquid—it will quickly produce a mass of thick foam. Add the aloe. Let simmer until foaming has stopped. Pour through strainer back into Vaseline jar. If the liquid is too hot, wait a bit so as not to melt the plastic jar, but don't wait too long or it won't pass through the strainer. Let cool completely and close. Mark container and store on shelf. It is easy to make and works on bug bites, stings, cuts, sores, pimples, burns, and more.
I love shopping at your online store. You have great products and excellent service! Thanks! Recently, I tried making up a different variation of the Green Plaintain Salve. Instead of vaseline, I used Coconut Oil and/or Pure Olive Oil with Beeswax that I obtained from a local beekeeper. Before I poured it in my jar, I added some Essential Oil of Lavender. It has worked great on rashes, burns, insect bites and stings, cuts, etc.

I ordered Nourishing Traditions several months ago, and use it religiously! Nearly every meal I make includes at least a variation of one of the book's recipes. I love it! I will be ordering a few more books I have my eyes on shortly! Thank you for great products and services!
Did You Know?
Unusually offensive body odor is often the result of toxins built up in the body, making their way out through the skin. Whether it's your feet, armpits or fecal matter, all such foul smells usually have the same root cause: excess toxins. Tackling such issues with an external remedy is usually, at best, a temporary fix. The use of Bentonite clay internally can flush out a wide variety of odor-causing toxins. A young lady from Florida recently shared how wonderful it is to be free of the offensive odor that had plagued her for some time. She thought it would never go away, but not long after she started consuming Bentonite clay, the body odor disappeared.
