plantain weed

It's not just a weed!

Plantain, one of the most useful 'weeds' you can find in your yard! If you're in your yard and get a bee sting, grab some leaves and crush them, put it on the bee sting...I put a bandaid over it to hold it in place until the sting stops. Or you can use a spit poultice, chew a few leaves and then place on the sting. 
This old time remedy really works! Use it on bug bites to stop the itching, or on any itchy issues. 
When I moved to the house I live in now, I had gotten a bee sting while on my motorcycle. And wouldn't you know new place didn't have any plantain in the yard!!  I fixed that issue immediately. I found some at my old house and brought the seeds to the new house. Now I have so much plantain that I harvest it several times a year to use in my Calendula Paste. My husband is forbidden from using any weed killer on this most useful plant!!
