Mustard Seed (Yellow) - Powder

Herbs: Mustard Seed (Yellow) - Powder, Organic

Origin: India
Latin Name: Brassica juncea

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.

powdered) in a little applesauce or yogurt. Use diluted tea tree oil(1/4 tsp. to 1/4 cup water) on face, shoulders, back or wherever needed.

Noon-repeat a.m. remedy - plus make a strong infusion of 1/4cup each of red clover tops, dandelion root, yellow dock root, and a little peppermint for taste steeped in 1 quart of boiling water for 45 minutes. Strain off herb solids and sweeten with stevia and drink throughout the day.
