Mullein Leaf And Linseed Decoction
Verbascum thapsus; Linum usitatissimum
Linseeds are rich in polyholosides, known to help skin retain water, leaving you hydrated and smooth. Mullein is known to have emollient and cleansing properties on the skin that makes it of cosmetic interest.
The flax is also known as linseed. It is an herb with a tall, leafy stem and pale blue flowers. Its tear-shaped, brown or yellowish seeds can be pressed to produce linseed oil or soaked in water to make their outer coating swell, producing a gel-like texture called mucilage. Mullein is a tall herb with large leaves as soft as rabbit ears and a long stem covered with yellow flowers. Finally, decoctions are made in-house at Lush by boiling raw materials in water until half of the water evaporates.
