Mullien Flower Oil

  • Author: Chris

Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of freshly picked mullein flowers
  • 2 heads of organic garlic
  • 2 cups of virgin olive oil
  • ¼ tsp. vitamin E oil
  • 1 wide mouth pint jar with lid

Instructions

  1. Place the mullein flowers in the bottom of the jar. They will fill it half way.
  2. Separate the garlic cloves from the garlic head. Peel each clove. Coarsely chop the garlic and drop it in the jar, on top of the flowers.
  3. Cover the mullein flowers and garlic with olive oil. Stir gently to remove any trapped air.
  4. Cap it tightly. I use the plastic lids that are sold separately from the mason jars, as they seem to leak less.
  5. Fill a crock pot half full of water. Place the covered jar in the crockpot. Cover the crock pot with a lid to hold in the warmth. Put it on the “warm” setting, or the lowest setting that your crock pot has. Plug it in. Leave it for 8 to 12 hours.  I left mine overnight.  You could make this in the morning and have it ready at bedtime, if you needed it.
  6. Unplug the crock pot and allow it to cool down so that you can handle the jar without getting burned.  I didn’t have to wait.  I was able to handle the jar immediately from my crock pot.
  7. Strain the oil and reserve it in a coloured glass bottle, with a dropper cap.  Cap tightly.  Label.
  8. This remedy will last at least a year, if kept in a cool, dry cupboard
