MULLEIN OIL (Verbascum Thapsus)



I like using mullein oil to finish various dishes (added at the end and not heated); salad dressing, pasta, bruchetta, soups, focaccia, pizza etc.

What goes

Mullein flowers, Garlic & Olive Oil 

How it goes

  • Filll a jar with mullein flowers 
  • Add in 4 cloves sliced garlic
  • Completely cover with olive oil  (Any carrier oils like Argan/ Sweet Almond /Sunflower can also be used)
  • Place muslin over the top  of the jar & hold in place with an elastic band. This serves to allow any air bubbles from the fresh flowers to escape
  • Place in a sunny location. Remove muslin after 4  days and replace with the jar lid 
  • Shake daily, keeping flowers submerged in the oil
  • Use new muslin to strain after 2 weeks , leaving any water behind
  • Pour into dark bottle for use when needed. It will keep for a year.
