Plantago Major.

Botanical name:

For years I have used a saturated tincture of this remedy as a dressing in the treatment of fresh cuts, wounds and bruises. It removes or prevents soreness; it promotes healing without the formation of pus, and is in all ways a desirable dressing.

I gather the whole plant with the roots. I wash it clean, pound it thoroughly in an iron mortar, chop it fine, put on alcohol and make a saturated tincture. Of this I add one part to about four parts of water, and apply on gauze.
