PLANTAIN HERBAL OIL OVERVIEW

Plantain is also known as Plantago major (and minor), Broadleaf Plantain, White Man's Footprint, Common Plantain, Patrick's Dock, Ripple Grass, Snakeweed, Waybread, Englishman's Foot.

The common plantain grows throughout the US, but is of Eurasian descent, and is now naturalized throughout the world. Legend has it that Alexander the Great discovered it and brought it with him back to Europe in 327 BCE. It has been referred to as the Whiteman's Foot by Native Americans, as wherever they went, it seemed to spring up. and in some places, it is seen as a noxious, invasive weed. It is, however, a useful little plant. It has been used by many cultures the world over, and the Saxons considered it one of their nine sacred herbs. It was considered an early Christian symbol of the path followed by the devout and many cultures todayt refer to it as an aphrodisiac. The leaves are quite edible, and often used raw in salads and cooked as greens. Older leaves have a stronger, sometimes objectionable flavor, and can be tough and stringy, but can be used to make tea. Plantain is very high in vitamins A and C and in calcium. Medicinally, Native Americans used plantain leaves to relieve the pain of bee stings and insect bites, stop the itching of poison ivy and other allergic rashes, and promote healing in sores and bruises. Plantain tea can be used as a mouthwash to help heal and prevent sores in the mouth, and as an expectorant. Most recently, plantain is being marketed as a stop smoking aid, adding one more use to the list of ways that this versatile herb is useful.

Plantain has been used as a panacea in some Native American cultures and with some very good reasons. Many of its active constituents show antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, as well as being anti-inflammatory and antitoxic. The leaves, shredded or chewed, are a traditional treatment for insect and animal bites and the antibacterial action helps prevent infection and the anti-inflammatory helps to relieve pain, burning, and itching. There is some investigation ongoing to study its affects on lowering blood sugar.

MAKING YOUR OWN PLANTAIN INFUSED HERBAL OIL

Plantain grows on most lawns, along with the common Dandelion. Many consider it a weed, but I consider it one of the wonderful plants we are blessed with. I have used plantain for years as a remedy for bruising and injuries. Plantain does not have a blossom, only a compact seed head that shoots upwards and turns from green to brown as the seeds mature. Plantain is both edible and medicinal. It is often a first-choice remedy for many skin ailments. All parts of the plant, including the seeds are usable. The leaves act as an excellent astringent to stop bleeding and promote the healing of cuts, skin infections and poison ivy. The root of Plantain can be chewed to ease the pain of toothaches. It is safe and effective for bee stings, bleeding, bruises, insect bites, hemorrhoids, and itchy skin. When used as an appetite suppressant, it may even lower cholesterol.

plantain oil supplies


TO MAKE YOUR INFUSED PLANTAIN OIL

Plantain herb infused oil is a great way to retain the plant's healing properties all year round, especially helpful during those winter months when fresh plantain is not available. Find plantain plants that are away from roadsides and treated lawns. You want plants that have not been polluted or sprayed with weed killers, insecticides or other lawn care contaminants. Look for healthy plants with fresh full green leaves free of contaminants. They grow abundantly all spring and summer until frost. Gather the fresh leaves and clean them in cool water. Place on paper towels and dab with dry towels to absorb moisture. Allow all the moisture to evaporate. You do not want any moisture on the leaves when you prepare them for your infusing. The amount of leaves to be gathered depend on the size of the jar(s) you will be using.

harvesting & preparing plantain leaves for oil infusion


When the Plantain leaves are completely dry, coarsly chop them up and bruise then, allowing the natural internal juices to come to the surface of the leaves, making them a bit mushy. Pack tightly (but do not tamp down) your prepared leaves in clean, dry glass jars (with tight fitting lids, such as canning jars). Cover the leaves completely with Olive oil leaving about 1/2-inch headspace. Cover with a piece of paper towel and a jar ring. Lable the jar with the name of the plant, date made, and date due to be strained. Place the jar out of direct sunlight and keep at room temperature for six weeks.

plantain oil preparation


Every day for the first week, top off the oil so that it completely covers the leaves. For the first 10 days, daily stir the leaves in the oil to release any air bubbles that may form or have been trapped in the oil. As the oil begins to absorb the plant's healing qualities, it will begin to have an odor like pepperoni. This is okay. It is not spoiling. Leave it lidded with paper towels until the odor dissipates, then use a regular solid lid for the jar. After six weeks, strain out the plant material and the Plantain oil is ready for use. You can strain the oil through several layers of cheesecloth. Transfer the oil to brown bottles (preferable) or a glass jar with a tight fitted lid stored away from direct sunlight. Be sure to label you jars so you know what is in them. Include the name of the oil and date made (the date you strained the oil and rebottled it).

This healing oil can be used plain on rashes, scrapes, bug bites and stings, bruising and other skin conditions. It is safe for animals and children. It can also be made into a salve by itself or combined with other healing oils and beeswax to make a healing salve.

PLANTAIN OIL HEALING SALVE

Take one cup of warmed infused oil (plain or mixed with other herbal / essential oils) and one ounce melted beeswax (approximately a little less than 2 tablespoons). Keep the container warm in a pot of hot water while stirring in the beeswax to make it easier. Stir in one teaspoon therapeutic grade lavender essential oil. Immediately pour into clean, dry containers. Allow to cool and harden into salve consistency. Carry a salve tin for emergency purposes and keep one in your medicine cabinet. It is a great skin soother.

Beeswax Helpful Tip: Find a lidded jar that holds about a cup. Melt your beeswax in that jar in a pot of hot water on the stove (never over direct heat as it is flammable). You can then measure out what you need and leave the rest to cool and reharden in the jar. Put a lid on the jar to keep dust out and simply reuse the same jar whenever you need it by reheating it. This is easier than trying to clean hard beeswax out of a measuring cup or pot every time you need to melt some.

PLANTAIN EMERGENCY POULTICE

Plantain can be used as poultice, you can chop a plantain leaf with a knife or other sharp instrument, add a little water and apply it to a wound. For an emergency treatment when camping or at the park you can make a poultice for insect bites and bee stings from the leaves of the plantain plant by chewing a plantain leaf, placing it on the wound, and covering it with a band-aid or strip of cloth to hold it in place. A plantain poultice can also be used for drawing out splinters or thorns.

honey comb and bees wax


BEESWAX AS AN EMULSIFIER

Pure, unrefined beeswax has a golden color and the sweet smell of honey. It is used to thicken natural lotions, salves, lip balms and creams. It also acts as an emulsifier to help bind oils and water together.

BEESWAX PROFILE

Beeswax is produced by the (female) worker honeybees. The wax is secreted from wax glands on the underside of the bee's abdomen and is molded into six-sided cells which are filled with honey, then capped with more wax. When honey is harvested, the top layer of wax that covers the cells, or the cappings, must be removed from each hexagon-shaped cell. Just to put it into perspective, one pound of wax requires the bees to consume about ten pounds of honey! Beeswax works well in cosmetic products because of the "wax esthers" that exist in both beeswax and human skin and it is these compounds which help to bind and emulsify ointments, lipsticks and lotions. As a natural hydrating ingredient that increases essential moisture in skin, it is commonly found in hand and body creams that help retain natural skin moisture and in the relief of itching from sensitive skin. Beeswax has an irritation potential of zero, and a comedogenicity rating of 0 - 2, which means that when formulated and used correctly in cosmetic formulations, beeswax will not cause a problem or clog the pores, but brings a host of very positive attributes, such as general healing and softening, as an antiseptic, and an emollient to cosmetic products. In foaming cosmetics such as skin and body detergents, beeswax improves skin compatibility and reduces the aggressive properties of surfactants, while in shampoos and hair conditioners it improves the condition and the manageability of the hair. Even after processing, it still remains a biologically active product, retaining some anti-bacterial properties and also contains some vitamin A, which is necessary for normal cell development. In folk medicine beeswax was used as an anticeptic for wound healing and beeswax ear candles were used for ear wax removal. They are believed to be able to heal ear infection and improve hearing by removing the wax inside the ear.

Listed below are some of the many reasons Beeswax is used in cosmetics:
  • It is easily incorporated in water and oil emulsions.
  • It is an excellent emollient and support for moisturizers.
  • It gives skin protective action of a non-occlusive type.
  • It gives good "body" (consistency) to emulsions, oil and gels.
  • It reinforces the action of detergents.
  • It increases the protective action of sunscreens.
  • Its elasticity and plasticity improve product efficacy by allowing thinner films.
  • It provides greater permanence on skin and lip surfaces.
  • It does not provoke allergic reactions.
  • It is compatible with many cosmetic ingredients.

Beeswax is very frequently used in the following cosmetic applications:
  • Beauty creams.
  • Cleansing creams.
  • Cold creams and lotions.
  • Emollient and barrier creams.
  • Depilatories.
  • Lipsticks - protective sticks in general.
  • Nail creams.
  • Sun protection products.
  • Eye and face make up.
  • Foundation creams.
  • Soaps.
  • Ear Candles (for removing ear wax).

Beeswax is very frequently used in the following crafts:
  • Candlemaking.
  • Beeswax modeling.
  • Making crayons.
  • Encaustic art (melting crayons onto an iron and then "painting" it onto paper).
  • Furniture polish.

The melting point for Beeswax is approximately 140 to 150°F. Beeswax should only be melted in an approved electric wax melter, crock pot, microwave oven, or double boiler. Do not melt beeswax in a pan directly on a stove under direct heat. Beeswax is mildly flammable and will start on fire if the wax comes in direct contact with a flame

BEESWAX PRECAUTIONS

People with bee allergies should not use beeswax as it could cause interactions and allergic reactions.



SLEEPING BEAUTY CREAM

1 tablespoon grated Beeswax
1 teaspoon Vitamin E Oil
1/4 cup light Sesame Oil
1/4 cup Orange Flower Water
Pinch of Borax Powder

Mix together the beeswax, vitamin E oil, and sesame oil. Heat gently until the beeswax is melted. Combine the orange flower water and borax powder, and heat until very warm. Pour the warm water into the oil mixture and stir well. Continue to stir, or pour the whole mixture into and electric blender and blend for 1 minute. Pour the cream into a clean container and allow it to cool completely. Store in a cool, dry place.

Apply the cream before you go to bed.




HERBAL SKIN CREAM

3/4 ounce Beeswax Shaving
1 cup Vegetable Oil
1 cup Water (or Rose Water)
24 drops (1/4 teaspoon) Rose Geranium essential oil or 6 drops Rose essential oil.

Heat the beeswax and oil in a pot unti lthe beeswax melts. Remove from heat, and add essential oils. In a separate pot, heat the water until it's warm to the touch. Remove the center ring on the lid of your blender or food processor and pour in the warm water. With the blender on high speed, slowly add the oil-beeswax mixture until it begins to solidify (this should happen once three-quarters of it has been added to the water). As this happens, continue adding the oil-beeswax mixture to the water, stirring in the top edges as they turn solid. Keep adding the oil and beeswax to the water until the mixture cannot absorb any more. Turn off the blender, and, using a rubber spatula, pour the cream into wide-mouthed jars while it is warm and can be poured (pimento jars are ideal).

Note: Substances that contain water invite bacterial growth. However, essential oils and beeswax (and vitamin E) are natural preservatives and, under most conditions, they will give a cream at least a six-month shelf life. If you keep the cream refrigerated, it should keep three times as long.

CHICKWEED PRODUCTS

Chickweed is also known as Stellaria media, and Stellaria spp, Mouse-ear, Adder's Mouth, Tongue Grass, Alsine, Chick Wittles, Satinflower, Winter Weed, and Star Weed. Chickweed is an English herb easily recognized by its straggling, succulent stems bearing paired leaves and white star shaped flowers. It is said that there is no part of the world where chickweed does not grow; it is even found in the North Artic regions. Both the Chippewa and Iroquois tribes used chickweed as a soothing eyewash and wound poultice. The herbalist Nicholas Culpepper recommended it as a main ingredient in a healing ointment. Modern uses include it in a variety of salves and ointments to help with all types of skin conditions including psoriasis, eczema, and even minor burns. Chickweed constituents are coumarins, rutin, B vitamins, iron, saponins, thiamine, niacin, vitamin C. The entire aerial part of plant is used for medicinal purposes. It is most often used as a tincture or ointment. Can be encapsulated or taken as a tea. For external applications it may be used in salves, infused in oil, or ointments. Chickweed is a "drawing herb" once thought to remove toxins from the skin, now more typically explained as a microcirculatory stimulant for the skin. Chickweed may be employed to treat acne, abscesses of the skin, and eczema, as well as duodenal and peptic ulcers. It can also be added to a bath to reduce inflammation and encourage tissue repair. Excessive doses have in rare occasions induced vomiting and/or diarrhea.



CHICKWEED HERBAL OIL MAKING INSTRUCTIONS

1. Purchase a carrier oil, also known as a base oil. Many herbalists prefer Olive oil because of its stability; the last thing you need is a moldy, rancid liquid. On the other hand, Jojoba oil has its fans too. Both oils provide plenty of nourishment and healing properties for the skin, even without the addition of botanicals.

2. Harvest several handfuls of the chickweed. The stems, leaves and flowers of this low-growing plant all contain plenty of its healing properties. Give the plant a "haircut" by cutting back all but 2 or 3 inches from the plant so that it can self-sow again for future harvests.

3. Wash the chickweed under gently flowing water to remove bugs and dirt, and dry thoroughly.

4. For quickly made oil, use a double boiler. Put as much of the chickweed as will fit into the top pot and pour 16 ounces of the base oil over the chickweed. Cover the pot and heat on a low setting for 6 to 8 hours. Let cool.

5. Alternatively, put the chickweed into two wide-mouth jars, and pour the olive oil over them. Cover, set the jars in the sun and let the mixture steep for several weeks.

6. Remove the Chickweed-Oil mixture from the jars or pot and strain the oil through a fine-mesh sieve or double layer of cheesecloth.

7. Pour the oil into a glass bottle or jar and cover tightly. Store the containers in a dark, cool place.


Note: Commerically made Chickweed oil is difficult to find. None of my usual merchants carry it. However, I did find it from outsources and have provided these courtesy links.

    MOUNTAIN ROSE AROMATHERAPY ESSENTIAL OILS


    The essential oils offered by Mountain Rose Herbs are 100% pure steam distilled plant oils with an unsurpassable fragrance, exceptional depth, magnificent keynote, and are free of carriers, diluents and other inputs. Here you will find some of the worlds most magnificent therapeutic grade oils from reputable distillers and suppliers we know, trust, and have a wonderful working relationship with. Mountain Rose Herbs essential oils are processed from freshly harvested material within clean distilleries, thus promising you some of the most magnificent oils available on the market. You are invited to "smell test" their line of oils with what is currently being offered in the market, and experience for yourself the unsurpassable nature of their oils. They are so confident in the quality of their oils that they can provide gas chromatography analysis and specifications on the volatility and integrity for many of the essential oils they stock. As per their commitment to organic agriculture, they offer one of the nations largest selections of certified organic essential oils. Considering the amount of pesticide use from the planting to the harvest, they are very concerned about the low quality and potential health hazards associated with many conventional oils. They perform painstaking research when they decide to stock a particular distillers oil and insist on the location of harvest, methods used to extract the oils, data reports assuring the oils character, and what type of material is used in the distillation process.



  • Mountain Rose Herbs: Aromatherapy Essential Oils


  • Mountain Rose Herbs: Carrier & Vegetable Oils




  • All of the essential oils they stock are obtained by steam distillation of fresh plant material with two exceptions:
    • Absolutes/Resins: Are extracted with a solvent, usually alcohol and sometimes other hydrocarbons, such as benzene, hexane, etc. While they are not suitable for therapeutic aromatherapy, they do make wonderful perfumes and are alcohol soluble. Those oils which we have found to be extracted with solvents will be noted as "solvent extracted."


    • Citrus Oils: All citrus oils offered are distilled strictly through cold pressed methods, and no steam distillation was employed to produce these oils.

    Their promise to you, that the line of essential oils offered by Mountain Rose Herbs are:
    • True Certified Organic by OTCO
    • Free of Pesticide and Chemical Residues When Not Certified Organic
    • Harvested and Distilled in Clean Facilities
    • From First Distillations

  • Mountain Rose Herbs, Hydrosols & Flower Waters

    FLOWER WATERS (HYDROSOLS)
    Hydrosols, also known as floral waters, hydroflorates, flower waters or distillates are produced from steam-distilling plant materials. Hydrosols have similar properties to essential oils but are much less concentrated. Unlike their "essential oil added to water" counterparts, true steam-distilled hydrosols contain all the beneficial components that whole plant materials have to offer.
    Hydrosols are usually a by-product of essential oil production, but the highest quality comes from devoted distillers who, with artist-like precision, steam small batches of fresh floral and plant material strictly to produce hydrosol (the hydrosols offered by Mountain Rose Herbs are produced in this fashion). Most of their hydrosols are distilled in copper stills, (a few in stainless steel stills) and processed through certified organic methods in Washington, California and Europe. Hydrosols contain all of the essence of the plant in every drop, just like essential oils but in a milder form; making them suitable for all manner of applications where essential oils would be too strong. In most hydrosols there is less than 5 percent actual oil.

    Please note that their aromas are mostly mild and subtle, sometimes bright and fragrant, and most hydrosols have an herby or grassy note indicative of their authentic and therapeutic properties. Wonderful as a facial splash, body perfume, deodorant or air freshener. Cool a hot flash, change your mood or add them to lotions and creams. Each of their 4 ounce hydrosols is packaged in an amber bottle with a black mister. The bulk 8 ounce, 16 ounce and 1 gallon waters are packaged in HDPE plastic bottles.
