Mullein is a stunning plant in the garden, with tall stalks of yellow flowers. Bees love it and it is so incredibly helpful for us!
Mullein 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 can help relieve asthma & other lung conditions, colds and flu.
The tea has a rich aromatic, refreshing, and herbal taste. This caffeine-free tea is said to possess antibacterial, antioxidant, antiviral, and many other beneficial properties. Mullein tea may help treat respiratory conditions, bacterial and viral infections, sleeping problems, and tuberculosis.
Mullein tea may also act as a natural sedative and help relieve sleeping problems & also headaches.
In some cases, mullein is applied directly to the skin to help treat burn, wounds or inflammatory skin conditions. Mullein oil is also used in ear drops for the treatment of ear infections.
In lab tests published in 2002, researchers found that mullein helped kill certain types of bacteria, including Staphylococcus aureus (the most common cause of staph infections) and Escherichia coli (or E. coli).
Mullein is easy to grow in well-drained soil and full sun. It tolerates a wide range of soil conditions including poor, sandy
soil, although it really prefers well-drained soil.
All our herbs are organically grown in a recycled or compostable pot.
