Although it is a common lawn weed, plantain is a valuable medicinal plant. It is a diuretic and gentle expectorant and has been used to treat coughs and respiratory tract infections and soothe oral inflammation and inflamed mucous membranes. It is a traditional remedy for gastritis and GI irritation, peptic ulcers, diarrhea and urinary tract inflammation.
This alcohol extraction tincture was made with plantain (Plantago major) ethically wild harvested by me here in northern Vermont. It was made with grain alcohol and contains approximately 50% alcohol.
