It’s funny that I just blogged about how wonderful plantain is for bee stings and just a few days later my oldest comes running to tell me he got stung by a bee!
He really handled himself quite well. I’m proud of my man!
I found a few leaves and brought them in to rinse off.
Then I chewed them, that’s not a typo, I did in fact chew them, to get the juices going and to apply to the sting.
The stinger wasn’t in the wound so I applied the chewed up plantain.
We left it on until it didn’t sting any more, which was only about a minute or so.
And the swelling and redness was down to just about nothing. I put a dab of plantain salve on just to make sure the sting was gone and to help with the swelling.
My guy was up and running again in just a matter of minutes. We love plantain!
