Herbal Preparations, formulas & loose teas created from mullein leaves and flowers date back for thousands of years as support for asthma, coughs, TB, and some bacterial infections. Infusions, powders, and tinctures can be taken orally + used topically. Poultices of wrapped leaves can aid in healing burns and minor wounds. Ontario's First Nation Peoples and the U.S. Amish smoked the dried leaves to relax the lungs when respiratory coughing was uncontrollable, or breathing became too difficult. Often just making a smudge of the leaves would suffice.
Mullein specifically removes - loosens + expels mucus from the lungs..Hence it's secondary name: Lungwort. Mullein is also of great value for lymphatic stagnancy.
Harvesting wild Mullein flowers & leaves for Stillroom Formulas - is a pleasure..local medicines are in plethora quantities in our fields and meadows...I'm sure you know this tall majestic pole of a plant with clusters of tiny bright yellow florets on top like a torch, Mullein blooms from July to September in tall colonies here & it's lovely to stand in a patch with a bushel basket filling quickly.
Mullein's green leaves are soft, fuzzy, and large. The base of the plant has several leaves that spread out on the ground, then, the stem rises from the center, sometimes as tall as eight feet. The huge flower spikes, near the top of the stem, are densely covered with bright yellow flowers that are open for only one day.
Mullein is powerful plant remedy for winter respiratory care.
Locally Wild harvested is an absolutely beautiful IMMUNITY BONUS.
'Mullein flower has a negative effect on the herpes simplex virus (HSV-1) and seems especially helpful for women and children who have frequent outbreaks around the mouth triggered by sun, food allergies, or estrogen surges before ovulation. Research shows excellent antiviral qualities against HSV-1 as well as influenza.'*
