Plantains have wide-ranging antimicrobial properties besides being anti-inflammatory and analgesic. It can not only soothe insect bites and superficial wounds but help with infections and accelerate healing.
An active biochemical aucubin is mainly responsible for the antimicrobial action of the herb. Another substance allantoin in the herb helps with skin tissue regeneration.
Plantains also have an astringent property that has a cleansing effect on the body. It helps dry up excess secretions in the respiratory tract and the digestive system, thus being useful in treating colds and diarrhea.

WARM WEATHER SHIPPING ADVISORY
At Herbs for Ailment, we do not use synthetic stabilizers. As a result, our natural products can be sensitive to temperature changes.
Since melting is a natural reaction to heat and we have no control over the conditions during transit or delivery, please understand that we cannot be responsible for melted products.
We have the same problem as companies who make and ship fine chocolates during summer months!
WHAT TO DO ABOUT MELTING
On sunny or warm days, it is best to refrigerate BEFORE opening the jars or tins. If you open items, especially those in tins, to check if melting has occurred, they may spill out and make a mess!
The quality and healing properties of our products are not affected by melting.
During hot weather we do our best to protect our products from melting in transit.
We check every product before it is packed for shipping
We wrap our delicate products in bubble wrap to add another layer of insulation
As a result, most products shipped in warm weather arrive without melting. But please understand, there is no way that we can ship products to completely control for the high heat temperatures of summer, trucks and mailboxes.
WHY DOES THE MELTING PROBLEM EXIST?
One of our biggest challenges as a formulator of natural skin care products is controlling the effect of the outside temperature. There are times we create an excellent product during the cold winter only to discover the product is too soft in the summer.
Many commercial products contain phthalates to stabilize and maintain viscosity (thickness), cocamide DEA, MEA to thicken, stabilize and emulsify, petroleum-based oils and waxes to thicken and stabilize and other additives to ensure that their products maintain the same consistency through all temperature variations. Our natural products do not contain these or any other synthetic additives.
I literally use this salve for anything skin related, it works miracles! The sooner applied rhe better results you get. My 1 year old son stays getting scrapes and bruises ALL the time. I apply the salve on his bruise and scrapes as soon as they happen and you can literally watch them fade away. My son also is severely allergic to mosquito bites, and this salve will shrink his bugbites and pull the poison out immediately. I swear by this product. Everyone needs a can of this ! It is a must have !
I have been itching which causes hives for days now. Nothing the doctor gave me has helped. I got this salve and immediately the itching went away!! I highly recommend this.
