DESCRIPTION
The silvery green leaves and bright yellow flowers of mullein have been utilized for thousands of years in traditional medicine to soothe the upper respiratory tract and appease and repel evil spirits. This gentle herb has been used extensively in European and North American folk medicine and thus has a plethora of folk tales associated with it. Presently, mullein can be found at health food stores often prepared as soothing leaf tea or an ear oil made of the infused flowers.

HERBAL ACTIONS
Sedative, diuretic, expectorant, astringent, demulcent, emollient

Mullein is a very gentle herb, with an affinity for the upper respiratory system, and exerts a mild sedative action upon the lungs. Primarily the flowers were steeped in oil and administered to soothe earache and the leaves were made into a tea to support upper respiratory health. The dried leaves have been smoked for centuries as a relaxant for spasmodic lungs and can be mixed with herbs such as lobelia to enhance this effect. The above ground plant parts should be thoroughly strained when making into teas, cordials, etc as the hairs can be irritating to those who have allergies and sensitivities. In fact, this slightly irritating quality was utilized by Native Americans who were said to put leaves in their moccasins to increase circulation and warm the feet.

PRECAUTIONS
Specific: Small hairs on mullein leaf may cause mechanical irritation in the mouth and throat if not filtered out of extracts prior to consumption.
General: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
