Plantain: properties and benefits of this wild medicinal herb

Our ancestors used it often, both in the kitchen and as a natural remedy.Plantain lanceolata is one of the most commonly found wild medicinal herbs in our country and can be used for the preparation of healing infusions, tinctures and syrups.

Ribwort plantain (piantaggine lanceolata) is a wild herb that grows almost everywhere in our countryside, and belongs to the same family as greater plantain, the latter different because of its wider leaves.

In peasant tradition, plantain was used as a “first aid” remedy, so much so that an old peasant adage said that “the way to the plantain is shorter than the doctor’s.”

Obviously, this plant cannot replace the doctor, however, it still offers healing properties that should not be ignored, and we list them for you below.
