Look at this great find on my walk today! Mullein has great demulcent, emollient and astringent properties, which make it useful in respiratory complaints and bleeding of the lungs and bowels.
The whole plant is a nervine which helps to calm the nervous system.
Mullein/garlic oil is often used to treat earaches, especially swimmer's ear. You can buy it at your local health food store. Or contact me and I can get some shipped out to you.
I also make it myself, which you can do too if you're so inclined!
(Side note: never put anything in your ear without having a doctor look at your eardrum. If you have a whole in your ear drum and put oil in it, you can damage your ear)
