There's lots of remedies offered and reccomended in various books but I'd be interested in anything folks have actually tried and actually had a result from. To kick off I can say the 'plantains' definately work for insect/midge/nettle stings and bites. It's excellent. I had my ankles ravaged by mossies and rubbed crushed ribwort plantain leaves over the bites and it brought almost instant relief. My Son suffers from hay fever and a tea from plantain genuinely helps......friend had migrane headache and a feverfew leaf sandwich got rid of it......Herb Bennet (Wood Avens) helps with my toothache (eugenol)....Elder leaves crushed and rubbed onto the skin keep those mossies away too, but only for a short time till it wears off. I'm very interested in natural plant remedies and would love to hear about genuine results from ailments.
