how to preserve mullein flowers for ear oil

Postby Pamela » Mon Oct 27, 2014 10:37 am

Hello, I like to preserve mullein flowers in oil to use for ear aches but every time I've tried this the flowers quickly turn black and moldy in the oil. I use organic olive oil that has a lot of garlic in it as well. Does anyone have any ideas as to how to prevent the flowers from going moldy in the oil?
