Vulnerary : used for or useful in healing wounds.
From wordsmith.org I rely on this site when it comes to the A to Z Challenge.
Seems fitting. An agent that helps heal wounds. I'm feeling a little beat up, how about you?
Above image is plantain. I see this stuff all over in the park I walk.
I searched Mother Earth News for vulnerary & boom, a rabbit hole to slip down.
I had no idea Mother Earth News had such store of online information.
Had a subscription back in the 70's.
"This divine herb has a multitude of properties. It’s a potent skin-cell regenerative,
mucolytic, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, circulatory stimulant, vulnerary, antioxidant,
antifungal, analgesic and deodorizing agent."
Reference for all kinds of herbs, preparations, uses.
I enjoyed the ride on this topic. Totally unexpected word.
Let me know if you did a little poking around.
