Please don't pick more than needed. Golden seal an antibiotic and a example of an herb that has been "over picked" whose seeds were not planted back where picked, and now are not available in the wild and controlled by the herbal company's which we pay too much their abuse. The blame belongs to mostly the herbal industry. Their should be laws that they need to replant famish areas they've over picked...especially, in famine situations in parts of the world.
I present this post in my blog because it's one of the "famine herbal," available for the needy please learn how to use them (Plantain, Nettle, Chicory, Dandelion, i.e.) Don't gather any plant by roads, it will have lead in the plant, nor by fields where they've sprayed with pesticides or by ditch banks where the state kills off weeds.
Mullein use to be used for Indian diaper,( and smoking) so, I've heard and has been called Grandmother flannel" because of its soft thick fuzzy-furry leaves. The yellow flower has been used as a dye.
RecipesTea: An aromatic tea can be made by boiling 1 tbs. dried leaves or root, in 1 cup water for 5 - 10 min. A sweeter tea can be made by infusing the fresh or dried flowers. Or for children and the elderly use milk instead of water. Sweeten with honey, if desired. Honey can be an anti biotic depending on the plants the bees use. (Manak is a strong anti biotic honey.) (Andrographis plant is another natural antibiotic (kills parasites) too.)
Roots can be boiled, leaves and flowers an infusion-decoctions teas are best.
Mullein oil: Use flowers or root. Place in blender or crush (herb pestle, if dried use coffee grinder), fill jar, then cover with olive oil, set in warm place for 2 weeks. Strain before use.
