September's flowers

See the mullein flowers below? To treat ear aches (unless ear drum is perforated) gather 1/4 c of flowers, mince three garlic cloves, put in a clear jar and cover with oil. Put a cheesecloth over the top and put in a sunny window for about three days. Then strain and put oil in a ear drop bottle. K, Ezra has only had a mild earache that was treated with oregano oil and went away but we now have some mullein oil if anyone needs to borrow or just in case.
Above Ezra is standing next to our hedge of sweet goldenrod which i can't wait to use for dyeing wool!
