Plantain Leaf is known by several common names, including Common plantain, Greater plantain, as well as Soldier's herb. The leaves of this plant are deeply veined, and the plant itself is an herbaceous perennial. It reseeds very easily and can be invasive in some areas. It should not be confused with the banana-looking plantain, which is a plant in the Musa genus.
Starwest Botanicals offers organic versions of Plantain Leaf in a cut form as well as powder forms. Cut and sifted refers to the dried leaves being cut to a size ranging from one-eighth to three-eighths of an inch. It is then screened on a fine screen to remove any particles smaller than this size, so that the finished product is evenly sized. Powdered dried herbs from Starwest Botanicals consist of a fine particle size that will pass through a screen of size sixty mesh.

Melanie’s Health & Nutrition really began with Auminay Naturals which was formerly SkinTastic Creations. This product line took root over twenty years ago as Melanie faced cancer. After becoming aware of alternative therapies she worked to change to a healthier lifestyle and learn about herbs. She developed what is now the Auminay Naturals product line by eventually learning to infuse these herbs into products that used natural ingredients to provide skin care products for a healthier lifestyle. In 2017, as a newly certified Master Herbalist, Melanie opened Melanie’s Health & Nutrition to provide a resource for the Tooele community. The Auminay products are now made in the back section of the store. Melanie and her staff love to serve the community and provide opportunities for learning, as well as products that empower people to be healthier.
