Mullein (Verbascum thapsus) is in bloom in early Summer (zone 4) most often, the flowers are used to soothe external pain and swelling (earaches, eczema, rashes, etc.) and the leaves are used for respiratory complaints.
Mullien is a fuzzy-leafed, yellow-flowered plant used primarily for fighting coughs and relieving congestion (very good for whooping cough, bronchitis, etc). It is, however, also a potent painkiller, antiviral and anti-inflammatory.
My intention is to make some new infused oil for my apothacary. Herbal-Oils. They are not to be confused with Esential Oils which is the whole essence of the plant. But rather an extraction of the base plant constituents into a menstrum of vegetable oil such as olive oil, sunflower oil, almond oil, safflower oil, etc...To view my video on how to make an infused oil please check out this video: http://www.theurbanabo.com/howto_2.php?hid=83top↟ Show more > >
