This is a very easy but effective herbal medicine for inflamed ears, joint pain, and more. Mullein grows all around us, so start your infusion today.
This is mullein growing in my garden. It has large fuzzy leaves and has a tall flower stalk in its second year. Small yellow flowers grow along the stalk. You will be collecting this flowers to make the ear drops.
Please make sure you are collecting Mullein and not another plant.
If wildcrafting make sure the plant is 50 feet away from traffic.
Collect enough flowers to fill a glass jar to 3/4 full. Pour olive oil over the flowers until they are completely covered. Lid tightly and label your jar.
Store out of direct sunlight for 4-6 weeks. Give the jar a gentle shake every day or so.
After 4-6 weeks, strain your infusion through a cloth or coffee filter. Warming your infusion will make it drain faster.
Store in a glass jar out of direct sunlight for up to a year. Don’t forget to label your jar.
Please see your doctor for serious conditions.
