A highly concentrated Plantain serum is made with Plantain (Plantago Major) organically grown in our medicinal herb garden and infused in Virgin cold pressed Rice bran oil.
The latest research by cosmetics industry found plantain to have excellent anti-aging and anti-wrinkle properties. Plantain oil works on reducing the appearance of fine lines, dark circles under eyes, droopy eyelids and dark spots related to aging.
Plantago major is one of the most abundant and widely distributed medicinal crops in the world. A single drop of Plantain oil can be applied to wounds, stings, and sores in order to facilitate healing and prevent infection. The active chemical constituents are aucubin (an anti-microbial agent), allantoin (which stimulates cellular growth and tissue regeneration), and mucilage (which reduces pain and discomfort).
The plant is one of nine sacred herbs mentioned in the ancient Lacnunga (Remedies), a collection of Anglo-Saxon medical texts. It has been used for centuries to calm and soothe stings, bites, scrapes and rashes. It is very high in vitamin A, allantion, apigenin, aucubin, baicalein, linoleic acid, oleanolic acid, sorbitol, and tannin which promote wound healing, speed up cell regeneration, and have skin-softening effects.
Plantain is rich in allantoin, a skin soothing anti-psoriatic, and is known to relieve itching and swelling from insect stings and bites, poison ivy rash and allergic reactions.
