Also known as Cuckoo's Bread, Ripple Grass, Waybread, common plantain has a long history of use in North America, earning a place in Native American history as well as in English herbal literature dating to the early 1600s.

Today, Slan-lus, an old name for plantain that means “plant of healing,” is used in tea blends. Because the plant contains a compound called aucubin, one of several iridoid glycosides that plants use as defense from pathogens, plantain leaf is also used to make infused oils and tinctures for topical use.

Plantain, also called Broadleaf Plantain and Great Plantain, is a rugged, low-growing plant that easily tolerates poor soil conditions, heat and constant foot traffic. In fact, for people who insist on maintaining a perfectly manicured lawn, plantain is considered a persistent nuisance plant.

While plantain thrives with little requirements, this little plant has served as a nutritious source of food in times of scarcity. The leaf is abundant in vitamins A and B1 and several minerals, including calcium.
