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 have recently started learning about herbs and their many uses. I live in an area rich with wild plants and herbs, and it amazes me to think they were here under my nose all this time and I thought they were just weeds! Thank you for sharing your knowledge. You truly have a great ministry in what you are doing. ~Lisa
Did You Know?
The daily consumption of Spirulina can improve and restore your energy levels like few other food sources can. This is partly due to its high content of riboflavin. Riboflavin helps release energy from carbohydrates, proteins and fats. So, the more riboflavin you consume, the more energy you'll get out of the foods you eat. Spirulina has more riboflavin than any other food source, making it perfect for those desiring an energy boost without any side effects.
