- Aug 12, 2011I agree People could use broad leaf plaintain plantago major
a common yard weed throughout the USA , and in many other countries
(for even brown recluse spider bites) to draw out the poison)
out doors you can rub it inbetween your fingers,
chew it up, and spit out the juice
I usually freeze it, it makes it put out juice easier
you can heat it for wounds(infections) also.
you can make a salve/ (or lotion) with it
with olive oil , plaintain, and bee's wax
form a organic homesteading forum [link below]
accualy it was the recipe garden ,
but you have to join both if your interested.
(they also have a trading group)
the whole plant is edible
Oh, and the seeds are metimucial,
and plantain ovata is psyllium husks
used in cleaning out your colon
(detoxing with bentonite clay found in wine making shops)
I am interested in native to illinois plantago species seeds
a few that were native
or The latin names
