I had an herb walk this weekend. One of the students brought her cute daughter. Apparently the girl had an earache in the night while they were at the hotel. They didn't have mullein oil or an onion or any of the other standard remedies for earache but they did have some fresh mullein flowers they'd just collected. So, she put one of the flowers in her ear canal. Apparently it worked just fine. :)

Just another reminder that the medicine is the plant and the plant is the medicine.


Disclaimer: Poking anything besides your elbow into your ear is a bad idea. This post should not be construed as medical advice. Poking flowers into your ear because you read that somebody on the internet did it may lead to an ear full of flowers, temporary deafness or a ruptured ear drum.
