PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A clear, pale yellow oil with hardly any aroma that is made by warm maceration (at 35°C) of the dried aerial parts of the (non GMO) Mullein plant in High Oleic Sunflower Oil. Vitamin E is added as an antioxidant and that Vitamin E is itself blended with a little Sunflower Oil to make it pourable.
