Plantain (plantago majors) - a go to herb for me in the summer as I'm spending time outdoors and in the garden. It's great for sunburn, general burns, mozzie bites, bug stings, cuts, scratches and wounds that won't heal.
Wound Healing: Plantain leaves have been used topically for centuries to promote wound healing. The leaves contain compounds such as allantoin, which have anti-inflammatory and tissue-repairing properties. Applying crushed or poulticed plantain leaves to minor cuts, burns, and insect bites can help speed up the healing process.Anti-Inflammatory: Plantain has natural anti-inflammatory properties. It can be used to relieve skin irritations, including sunburns, rashes, and eczema. Its soothing effects can help reduce redness and itching when applied as a poultice or used in skincare products.

Anti-Microbial: Plantain has natural antimicrobial properties, making it effective against bacteria and fungi. It can be used topically to help prevent infection in wounds and skin irritations.

 

Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) One of the primary healing benefits of yarrow is its anti-inflammatory properties. It contains flavonoids and sesquiterpene lactones, which have been shown to reduce inflammation in the body. This makes yarrow a valuable herb for treating conditions such as arthritis, rheumatism, and other inflammatory disorders. Yarrow also possesses antiseptic and antibacterial properties. It contains a compound called azulene, which has antimicrobial effects and helps inhibit the growth of bacteria. This makes yarrow useful in treating wounds, cuts, and minor skin infections. This us why I love it in healing salves. Furthermore, yarrow is well-known for its ability to promote wound healing. It stimulates blood flow to the affected area and helps to stop bleeding. The herb has astringent properties that constrict blood vessels and aid in the clotting process. Traditional use of yarrow involved applying it directly to wounds to speed up the healing process and prevent infection.

 

Calendula is renowned for its skincare benefits. anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antifungal. It can soothe irritated skin, reduce redness, and promote the healing of wounds, cuts, burns, and bruises. Calendula is often used to alleviate dryness, eczema, dermatitis, and other inflammatory skin conditions. A wonderful Wound Healer; The natural skin-regenerating properties of calendula stimulates tissue growth and increases blood flow to the affected area, accelerating the healing process. Applied topically to cuts, scrapes, and minor burns to promote faster recovery and minimise the risk of infection.
Considering these healing factors this balm is essential in an Aussie witches bag this summer.
