About Mullein: In the back corner of Avena's biodynamic garden, near our beehives, lies a magnificent Greek Mullein patch that reseeds itself annually. These six to seven foot tall torches, covered with hundreds of yellow flowers, serve as a Mecca to the bustling bee population. Avena's gardeners are found, in the early morning hours of July, singing and collecting many pounds of the delicate Mullein flowers and the soft leaves of the first year plants. These leaves are immediately tinctured in organic alcohol and the flowers infused in organic olive oil (see Ear Oil drops).
Biodynamic Agriculture is a holistic, ecological, and ethical approach to gardening and farming — one that we at Avena Botanicals have been practicing since 1998.
Around the world, people are studying and applying Biodynamic principles and practices in gardens, farms, and orchards to support the Earth’s healing and resilience. Based on the work of philosopher and scientist Dr. Rudolf Steiner, Biodynamics has continued to evolve and grow since 1924. From seed to bottle, we are dedicated to caring for our garden... soil, trees, medicinal plants, pollinators, each other, and you, with integrity, respect, and love.
