Root is a useful and valuable herb. Traditional herbalists apply the powdered
root of comfrey to minor wounds, insect bites and bruises. It can be used in
baths as an astringent and to soften the skin. The roots, leaves, and extracts
of comfrey can used in salves and ointments.
The herb plantain is often considered a weed. It has a gentle astringent action, which soothes minor wounds, blisters and rashes.
The University of Maryland Medical Center notes that plantain has a reputation as an herbal application for the stings or bites of insects. Simply mash a leaf to release its juices and apply to the bite or sting. Plantain also helps with poison ivy, simply rubbing a leaf on affected skin helps ease itching. Herbal effects are simply soothing, not healing or treatment for medical issues.
