Mullein is an ancient powerful plant. Indians used to take the flowers and masquerade them in oil to come back and cure ear infections.. I’ve been experimenting with this plant l for a few years now. I forge the flowers from July to The end of October. I’ll dry them out for a little bit and then put them in the sunflower seed oil for two weeks in a spot where the sun can hit them. I’ve seen the oil work relieve joint pain, clear up skin rashes, and cure cold sores. The leaves can be used in infusions and tinctures for cough suppressant because this plant is also an expectorant and works with overall respiratory health.
