Working with Mustard
Mustard seed is mainly used medicinally in plaster form for bronchitis, rheumatism, and lumbago. It is sometimes added to a bath or used in foot baths for colds and flu. Internally, a decoction of mustard seeds is taken for lung problems, such as coughs and excess phlegm, and to warm and improve the digestion. Commercially-made mustard plasters are sometimes available in drugstores and herb shops or natural food stores.
Mustard has a taste of SPICY and a temperature of HOT.
