Plantain Leaf (Cut & Sifted)

Also known as Cuckoo's Bread, Ripple Grass, Waybread, common plantain has a long history of use in North America, earning a place in Native American history as well as in English herbal literature dating to the early 1600s.Today, Slan-lus, an old name for plantain that means “plant of healing,” is used in tea blends. Because the plant contains a compound called aucubin, one of several iridoid glycosides that plants use as defense from pathogens, plantain leaf is also used to make infused oils and tinctures for topical use.
Also Known As greater plantain, broadleaf plantain, englishman's foot, ripple grass, snakeweed
