- Plantain has long been considered by herbalists to be a useful remedy for wounds and inflamed skin due to it's anti-inflammatory and healing effects The tannins (astringent) and allantoin (promotes wound healing, speeds up cell regrowth/healing and softens skin) in plantain are considered the major factors in making it a mild anti-inflammatory.

- Calendula has healing and anti-inflammatory properties. Research has shown that Calendula can actually help wounds heal faster, possibly by increasing blood flow and oxygen to the affected area, which helps the body grow new tissue.
