Plantain and Calendula infusion.
yesterday I saw a Facebook post that featured a batch of Plantain Salve. My friend Lindsey has two boys and swears by it's healing properties. I googled it and found that the first step is to make an infusion. Oh, and I had no idea what a plantain was. It is a weed!! So I walked up and down our street with my weed digging stick thingy and an empty pot. I found more than I thought I would. So I cleaned it and picked off the better leaves. I must say they were some pretty ratty specimens in my batch. I also had some dried Calendula petals from my garden. I threw them all into a mason jar, covered them with olive oil and will let them diffuse over the next ten days and then check on it.
