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.

Plant some Lobelia Medicinal herb seeds today in a pot, container or a small spot in your garden

Lobelia organic Herb Seeds

Home Farm Herbery Lobelia Seeds (Lobelia inflata) are Organic and we have just harvested enough to share with our favorite Local Harvest Customers so buy early.

Annual. Press tiny seed into surface of flat and water lightly. Boom water or mist, light dependent germinator. Prefers full sun to partial shade and lots of water. Useful anti-spasmodic & expectorant when combined with more soothing herbs. Use caution; one of its common names is puke weed.
Lobelia is an overwintering annual or annual. Native to the central, southern, and eastern US.  It is a diminutive plant with white flowers that have light-blue spots.  These flowers give way to the characteristic “inflated” seedpods. Lobelia is an indispensable antispasmodic.  Low dose botanical! A liquid extract of the seed is commonly used and can cause the impressive expulsion of thick, ropey mucous from sinuses and bronchi.

Lobelias prefer part to full sun, rich, moist soil, and much water. Short-lived seed. Light-dependent germinators. Sow seed in spring or fall. Average germ time in warm soils is 1 to 3 weeks. Water very gently.  Extra advice on lobelia inflata--if you're really trying to grow a patch for production, it makes sense to follow the natural cycles for this plant.  In nature, germination is in the fall, after which the low-lying rosette overwinters, and flowers and goes to seed in the next spring to early summer.  If you try to grow it as a spring annual it will probably bolt to flower when the soils warm up in the summer and give very little yield.

Echinacea Purpurea Seeds are now available for fall or spring planting



(Echinacea purpurea) Herbaceous perennial.

Our Home Farm Herbery Organic Perennial Echinacea Purpurea Seeds are now

available to sow seed outdoors in very early spring or fall. This plant prefers full sun, with well drained, limey soil and regular watering. It is a beloved medicinal that is used for its immune enhancing properties.

Cultivation: Sow seed in the early spring in flats outdoors or in the greenhouse, and transplant seedlings out to the garden or field in mid-spring (middle of May in our area). Starting earlier, and transplanting twice into progressively bigger containers will result in a much better rooted transplant, which will probably flower in the first year. It is fairly easy to seed this plant directly in the garden or field. Sow the seed shallowly in the early to mid-spring. Keep moist. Once the plants are up, you must stay on top of the weeds, and thin to 1 foot spacing after the second set of leaves has formed. E. purpurea likes full sun, plenty of water, and rich, limey soil. This is the species best suited to varied growing conditions, whether coastal or mountain, east or west. It is easy to grow, and produces on the average 1/2 pound of fresh root by the dormant period following the second year of growth.

Plant 1 foot apart.

Flowers 3 to 4 feet tall.

Ashwagandha Seeds Organic Rare seeds for sale

Ashwagandha Seeds Organic Rare

 


(Withania somnifera)

Home Farm Herbery Organic Ashwagandha Seeds are a herbaceous perennial in the tropics, annual in temperate zones. Start indoors and transplant as you would tomatoes. It does not tolerate cold conditions well. Ginseng-like Ayurvedic tonic is used mainly for physical and mental exhaustion.  Plant 12 inches apart in full sun and it grows from 24 to 36 inches in height and 9 to 12 inches in diameter producing eventually the lantern-like pods enclosing the pea-sized fruits, green at first and becoming bright red as the inflated calyx dries and becomes transparent.  This plant produces pretty little winter cherries.  Hardiness to 15 degrees.  Cooler than zone 8, Ashwagandha is best grown as a summer annual or it grows well in a pot.  If grown in a cooler climate we advise getting an early start, as the plant really requires a 200 day growing season to reach full maturity.  Plants grown for 100 days still produce fine roots for medicinal use, but the yield is less. Sow in early spring indoors or in the greenhouse.  Average germ time 15 days.

Easy to grow, unusual and useful, also an increasingly popular herb for selling and taking. Dried root is a Ginseng-like tonic of Ayurveda. Traditionally used as a sedative, aphrodisiac, anti-diabetic and general tonic, the anabolic activity of the herb is particularly well suited for treating those who are depleted of energy and lack sexual appetite.  The herb builds energy and jing.  Having trouble getting the old engine to turn over?  Need something to help grease the crank?  Try taking 1 gram of Ashwagandha powder in milk or ghee, morning and night.  Your partner will be impressed.
