It seems like essential oils are everywhere these days, and their popularity is growing like wildfire. In 2007, when I started making soaps, I didn't know anyone using essential oils in their daily life. In my experience, they were mostly the things of hippies, spa, and the occasional soaper.

Plantain (Plantago major) is a common backyard weed that grows pretty much everywhere. It's right up there with dandelions. Most of you probably see it every time you are outside in the warmer months and may not even realize what it is. Although perceived as a pesky weed its actually a very handy little herb to recognize as its uses are numerous and may be helpful for various issues encountered while out in nature.
