Mustard Seed (Yellow) - Powder

Herbs: Mustard Seed (Yellow) - Powder

Origin: India

Mustard seeds are a very good source of omega-3 fatty acids as well as a good source of iron, calcium, zinc, selenium, manganese, magnesium, protein, niacin and dietary fiber. The mustard plaster (powder & cold water) is a time-honored remedy for the congested chest. Mustard is a rubefacient, which causes the skin to feel warm, and opens the lungs to make breathing easier. The plaster should, however, never be applied directly to the skin as it may cause painful blistering. A layer of lint (or thin) material should be put between the mustard paste and the skin and the poultice should be removed as soon as it becomes uncomfortable. The same plaster has also been used to relieve arthritis, rheumatism, sciatica, paralysis of limbs and other muscular pains.

From Our Reading and/or Experience...

  • This is not like the Mustard powder you may find on a spice rack in a supermarket. This is much fresher and more effective.
  • Like most spices, it is potent and a little goes a long way.
  • We use it in very small amounts in tincture combinations. Of course, it can be used in many other types of remedies.
  • Mustard powder is a food and spice. Thus, we keep it in the kitchen as all other food ingredients. We add it to many dishes (salads, meat dishes, stir fry, vegetables, etc.) to enhance the flavor and add nutritional value to our foods.
  • Mustard can be used to benefit anyone: men, women (including before, during or after pregnancy, and nursing), children and animals.
  • It can be used as often as you would like, and in any way you choose.
  • As is the case with most spices, Mustard seed powder should be stored in a dark, dry, and cool place.

Can I do mustard capsules, as it helps lose weight? Or it is not safe?

    Hello, from the research I have seen it should be fine to take it internally however it would be best to start small! Thanks!

From our Mailbox

Dear ones: Thank you so much for providing the opportunity to buy books and herbs at reasonable prices, along with the good information you have provided on this website. Using the books you provided, I was able to make a salve for my 3 year-old daughter which actually tames an itchy, red, dry rash on her hands that has plagued her for two years. I used the information you provided, along with the information from the books I ordered from you, and then herbs from my garden and woods to make this healthy skin salve (that's what our family calls it - we've all become believers after each of us has benefited from it!). I have long been frustrated with her rashes and have found nothing over-the-counter to actually diminish it, and eliminate the pain and itching. I thank the Lord for you and for his healing plants!
