A.Vogel's Plantago Tincture is a traditional herbal remedy used in the treatment of sinus congestion, middle ear infections and catarrh. Plantago is one of the few herbs that penetrate the middle and inner ear canal. Its natural antibacterial property helps to counter all ear infections. It has mucous membrane soothing properties which may help people alleviate the suffering associated with tinnitus and also helps catarrh due to chest infections and nasal congestion.
The soothing action of Plantago is attributed to its mucilage content together with iridoids which have an anti-inflammatory activity helping to promote tissue repair. This makes Plantago Tincture extremely useful for alleviating sinus congestion and post nasal drip which often leads to other complications such as chesty coughs and catarrh.
Plantago lanceolata, or as it is more commonly known, Lance Leaf Plantain, can be found in all but the most acidic grasslands in Britain and many parts of Europe.
Plantago is a perennial herb and provides a nutritious food source to wildlife as well as agricultural animals. Culpepper, the well known herbalist, described the herb as both astringent and soothing. Some years later, Alfred Vogel also found Plantago to be one of the ‘undervalued’ plants used in healthcare.
