The powder is gently ground exclusively from black mustard seeds (Semen sinapis nigrae) and meets the quality criteria of the European Pharmacopoeia. Compared to white mustard seeds, which are usually used for mustard production, black mustard is significantly sharper and contains particularly high levels of sinigrin (a mustard oil glycoside for which there is ample evidence of positive health effects).


Black mustard has been used in Ayurvedic medicine since time immemorial. The origin of the saying "add your mustard" also shows that mustard is something special. This originates from the 17th century when mustard was very valuable, and adding mustard to a meal made it more precious. The following is still known today about the health effects of mustard: The pungency of the mustard oil glycosides clears respiratory passages, which is why black mustard is used for colds. Foot baths with black mustard flour are effective against cold feet and are therefore good for a cold, impending bladder infection, and also for headaches caused by high blood pressure (blood comes from the head into the feet).


Mustard poultices have an intensive warming effect and are used, for example, for joint pain or back pain. A mustard ointment or poultice helps to relieve swelling, is effective against skin lichens, and promotes wound healing. Mustard is also said to have antioxidant, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-carcinogenic properties. Mustard stimulates digestion and is therefore also used for loss of appetite, flatulence, and constipation.


People react differently to the mustard oils that are produced when mustard seeds come into contact with water. So it is better to be careful at first and try out what is good for you.


We use black mustard seeds to make our original Bad Windsheim brine mustard.


Mustard poultice for joint, nerve, and muscle pain

Common recipe idea from our exchange with the alternative practitioner Mrs. Melanie Wenzel.


You will need:

5 tbsp. black mustard flour


Water at max. 40 degrees (otherwise important enzymes are deactivated and the valuable mustard oils cannot be broken down)

1 tablespoon vinegar (to release the mustard oils better)


1 thin cotton cloth (e.g. a kitchen towel) 1 terry towel


How to do it:

Mix the mustard flour with the vinegar and enough lukewarm water to make a paste. Spread it on a piece of cotton towel as thick as a finger and fold it in all around. Place the "packet" on the painful area, put the towel over it, and let the poultice work for about 15 minutes. Then remove the wrap, wash the area with water, let it dry well, and apply some cream if necessary.


How to use:

The poultice should be used no more than once a day. It strongly stimulates blood circulation, but if the skin itches or burns, remove the wrap immediately!
