Black mustard seeds have a distinct, pungent taste that gives dishes an unmistakable mustard flavour, and unlike prepared mustard, these dried seeds allow you to control the heat and intensity to your liking. However, Dried Black Mustard Seeds pack way more than just culinary heat - these seeds are loaded with powerful compounds that provide a host of benefits beyond the kitchen.

Size: 100g.

This product is certified: Vegan and Food Grade.

Poultice: Grind 100g of seeds and add warm water to form a thick paste. Add this paste to a cloth and place on the affected area. Leave on for 1 minute (not longer than 3 mins) then remove. If necessary, you can soothe the skin by applying olive oil to the affected area. 

Infusion: Add 1 cup of boiling water to 1 tsp of finely crushed seeds. Let infuse for 5 minutes before consuming. The recommended dosage is up to (but not exceeding) 3 cups a day.
