How to Use our Wildcrafted Mullein
Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Add 1-2 leaves to the tea, tearing into large pieces if needed to fit. Turn off the heat and allow to steep 10-15 minutes before straining.
The leaves have an earthy taste that pairs well with lemon juice and honey.
Infused Oil or Tincture
According to National Geographic's Guide to Medicinal Herbs, the classic mullein preparation involves covering the leaves in olive oil inside a clear jar, then setting in a sunny window for 2-3 weeks.
It's then strained and placed in a dark brown bottle with a dropper dispenser and stored in a cool place. This preparation is often used to ease the pain of an ear infection by dropping in 3-4 drops.
