Common Mullein (Verbascum thapsus) - 06
(Common Mullein (Verbascum thapsus) - 06) This is the only common mullein that we have seen with multiple flower stocks.  These additional flower stocks are much shorter than the main flower stock.  The ancient Romans used to dip these common mullein stocks in fat or oil and use them for torches in funeral processions, and the ancient Greeks used the leaves as wicks.  The leaves of the common mullein had also been used as shoe liners, for making medicinal tea, and to add a medicinal quality to tobacco.  Women also used the leaves to rub their cheeks to bring out a natural glow without the use of make-up.

lamb-right lamb-left Presented here are just a few of the countless components of God's creation.  Just as we cannot have human and animal life without water and plants, neither can we have lasting peace without love and compassion.  It is our hope and prayer that this series will motivate people to live and act in a cruelty-free manner; that we would no longer hurt or destroy each other, the animals or our environment.
