The "healing Leaf" or Greater Plantain is used for both drawing wounds and healing them. The leaf is plucked fresh and the underneath part is applied to the wound when we wish to draw the matter from it. A fresh leaf is applied every day until all the matter is drawn out. When we wish to heal a wound the upper part of the leaf is applied. The leaf is held in position by means of a small bandage.
The leaves of the Coltsfoot are dried and smoked in a pipe as a cure for Asthma. The smoke should be inhaled.
