Plantain - The Anti-Poison:
The Plantain you find on the lawn is usually Plantago Major. It is a broad-leafed plant that stays low to the ground, and has a little crooked seed stem that grows up out of the middle of the plant. Plantago lanceolata is usually found in backyards and waste places. It is a long narrow leaf with the veins that run parallel from stem to tip. Some plants will grow a foot tall and the seed stem grows straight up from the middle of the plant sometimes reaching heights of two feet.

Look for plantain in your back yard!! I wonder if you will find it? I know we've used it for Caleb's eczema...in oil and leaf form.
Peace and love!
