How to make Mullein Leaf Tea

Dried mullein leaves, flowers and roots can all be used to heal these lung abating conditions. A mullein tea is the most common method of preparing the herb and the recipe below makes one cup of tea, which can be consumed up to 3 times a day. Using the tea as a gargle once it has cooled down is very effective for coughing and soreness in the throat. 

Mullein Leaf Tea 

Ingredients
1 ½ cups boiling water
1-2 teaspoons dried mullein leaves and/or flowers (flowers make a sweeter tea)
1 teaspoon dried spearmint (optional for flavor)
1-2 teaspoons honey (optional)

Directions
Steep the mullein leaves in hot water inside a tea ball or strainer for 15 minutes. Add honey if you like a sweeter tea.
If the flavor of mullein doesn’t agree with you, another great way to reap its benefits is by preparing an inhalant. To do this, boil the leaves in water for 5 minutes and inhale the steam to relieve coughs, congestion and asthma. Mullein can fight asthma and keep away colds because it actually prevents infections from settling into the delicate respiratory tissue by curing dryness and constriction.

Rather ironically, mullein can also be smoked, thus rendering itself the only type of cigarette that could be considered beneficial in treating lung conditions.

Mullein is primarily a respiratory herb, although its benefits reach much further than our lungs. The herb is a diuretic and thus can relieve urinary tract inflammation when taken through a tea. It can also be used to decrease inflammation in the bowels, helping to reduce colitis and other issues. Mullein extract infused with olive oil has been used to reduce the inflammation of earaches, sore joints, insect bites and hemorrhoids because of its soothing properties. Simple poultices made out of fresh, mashed mullein leaves and flowers mixed with water can also be used to relieve, burns, boils and sores.

Lemon Balm Medicinal Herb for sale


Lemon Balm Medicinal

 


Lemon Balm Medicinal Organic cut and sifted

 

Our Home Farm Herbery Lemon Balm is a wonderful healing herb, but it also makes a great culinary herb. Lemon balm has been used as a both a culinary herb and medicinal herb since the 1500's.

 

Medicinal uses: The crushed leaves, when rubbed on the skin, are used as a repellant for mosquitoes. Lemon balm is also used medicinally as an herbal tea, or in extract form. It is claimed to have antibacterial and antiviral properties (it is effective against herpes simplex).Lemon balm extract was identified as a potent in vitro inhibitor of GABA transaminase, which explains anxiolytic effects. The major compound responsible for GABA transaminase inhibition activity in lemon balm was then found to be rosmarinic acid. Lemon balm and preparations thereof also have been shown to improve mood and mental performance. *These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA.

These dried leaves make an excellent tea, but because it can be so relaxing, it is recommended to not drink and drive.  Lemon verbena matches perfectly with poultry and seafood. For poultry, try rubbing a little into the cavity or add a tbsp. to poultry seasoning for some extra zing. Sprinkle on seafood or add to a marinade for a bright vibrant flavor. Additionally, lemon verbena pairs nicely with fatty meats like pork or duck. Try adding some to your next soup or stew.
 
Also adds great flavor desserts, drinks and salads. You can use lemon verbena in place of lemon zest in recipes. Bury 6 lemon verbena leaves in a cup of sugar that has been placed in a covered jar or container. Use this sugar to top muffins, fruit, or sprinkle on the top of muffin batter before baking.

Stevia Leaf Organic


Stevia Leaf Organic

 


Even though Stevia is an herb that is native to Central and South America we grow it here at HOME FARM HERBERY right here in Kentucky. It is a natural sweetener that is a healthier alternative to sugar or artificial sweeteners. Stevia does not affect blood sugar levels making it a suitable option for most diabetics. Because stevia leaf powder is about 15 times sweeter than sugar, and the powder and liquid extract is around 300 times sweeter, you can use much less stevia than regular sugar to sweeten foods and beverages. In late 2008 the Food and Drug Administration approved stevia as GRAS (generally regarded as safe).

 

Home Farm Herbery Organic Stevia Dried Leaf comes with a FREE Stevia Conversion Chart and some free recipes.  You will love it. Buy today.
