Insect Bites and Stings – As a child I was always told to "spit on it". And do you know that saliva is antiseptic and readily available, and as a first aid for most insect bites and stings it works.

Plantain leaves can also be used, and they are especially good for nettle stings. If we were stung by nettles, we were told to look for the dock leaves which would be growing nearby. Isn't nature wonderful to provide the antidote in such close proximity to the problem?

And if we cut ourselves (not badly I hasten to say) when we were out playing, or grazed our knees, then plantain leaves wrapped around the graze worked wonders, and provided good natural cameoflage!
