Infused oils

Postby barefootgirl77 » Mon Jul 20, 2015 9:18 am

Not sure where to ask my questions. I hope here is ok. Can I infuse oil with fresh mullein leaves? The current harvested mullein has very little flowers. I want it for general skincare. I have mullein drying for use in infusions for my lungs as I have had a cough for 5 months now. I am suspecting a fungal infection in them. When making my infusions for drinking what part of the dried mullein do I use? I have individual leaves drying as well as the flower stock and leaves. Thanks for any and all help ahead of time.

I am not personally familair with Mullien, other than making my own dried leaves/flowers, but from a vague memory fresh leaves work as well for infused oils. Howeve,r they are very "moist" so you'd have to be careful with mold in your oil, unless you simmer it or such? Sorry I don't have direct specifics to help, but I'm sure someone here will reply soon enough. :)
