Has anyone made mullein torches? If so, how did you do it?

I always thought that was just a term for the way the plant looked, not a real thing... kinda a waste of good mullein.

You soak the seed head in melted tallow or a vegetable oil, then light it.

They are smoky, stinky, and drip hot falming bits onto your hand ... not a whole lot of fun.
