How to make plantain oil for stings and bites

Before watching, please pause, breathe and relax.

This is a short, quiet film where I show you how to make plantain oil. Which I find deeply soothing for insect bites and stings. It is also great for inflamed skin rashes.

Did this video work for you?

I have tried to create a calm, slow vibe with no commentary, so you can experience a little peace out of the usual hustle and bustle of daily life.

  • 5 grams of dried plantain leaf (Ribwort or Greater)
  • 200 ml of extra virgin olive oil
  • glass bottle

Update After Reading The Comments

  • Always dry the leaves as fresh ones have too much water and can make the oil rancid and at worst infected with botulism. See my botulism alert on this page.
  • I air-dry the leaves using a herbal drying rack. You can also place the leaves on newspaper and let them dry that way.
  • The oil lasts for about a year. I always make very small batches.
