Mullein, also known as Verbascum thapsus, is a plant that is native to Europe, Asia, and North Africa but can now be found in many parts of the world. The plant is known for its tall stalks of yellow flowers and has been used for centuries for its medicinal and culinary properties. Native Americans and colonists used it for various medicinal purposes, from helping with coughs and breathing to healing wounds.  

They used to: 

  • Smoke the leaves. 
  • Make a cough syrup out of boiled roots. 
  • Apply the leaves in a paste to the skin. 
  • Rub the leaves over inflamed skin. 

Benefits

Mullein is extremely helpful for any lung condition that can lead to inflammation or infection. Before antibiotics, it was a go-to herbal remedy for: 

  • Pneumonia. 
  • Tuberculosis. 
  • Whooping Cough.

Mullein is an expectorant, which means it helps the body expel excess mucus, usually by helping make your coughs more productive, to bring up mucus that may be settling in the chest or in the throat. It is also a demulcent. Studies show that demulcents create a soothing anti-inflammatory coating over mucous membranes. Demulcents contain a higher amount of mucilage than other plants. All plants produce at least a little of this sticky substance, which provides soothing relief to the mucous membranes.

Both qualities make it useful for soothing irritation of the lungs, throat, and bronchial passages that may lead to difficulty breathing.

Other ailments that can be treated with mullein include:

  • Earaches
  • Middle ear infections
  • Coughs
  • Bronchitis
  • Asthma
  • respiratory problems
  • Sore throat
  • Sinus infection
  • Migraine
  • Menstrual cramps
  • Arthritis 
  • Rheumatism
  • Urinary tract infection

 

Uses

Mullein is commonly used in teas, tinctures, and poultices to promote respiratory health, relieve pain and inflammation, and soothe irritated skin. Mullein flower can be used to make a nourishing tea that’s been used in folk medicine. To make the tea, the leaves are simply simmered in boiling water and then strained.
