In the Know
Not to get too scientific on you, but did you know that plantago, the fancy name for plantain, is a genus of about 200 small species? Another interesting fun fact: the food plantain, though it shares its name, has nothing to do with what we’re talking about here: the plantain in our super yummy, highly beneficial Plantain Leaf Tea.
What Exactly is Plantain Leaf?

The broad leaves of the plantain plant grow all over the world, but are mainly found in wetter areas, such as bogs. They are commonly seen as weeds, and can be quite invasive, but don’t be fooled: since prehistoric times, the plantain has been incorporated into herbal remedies. And no wonder!
