This versatile herb has a long history of traditional use for a wide range of respiratory disorders, to speed up wound healing, to ease rheumatic pain, and for haemorrhoids . Native Americans were known to smoke the leaves to treat asthma and to clear lung congestion. In Ireland, Mullein leaves were boiled in milk to make a decoction that was used as a remedy for tuberculosis.
RESPIRATORY - Mullein leaves are rich in saponins which are thought to be responsible for the potent respiratory benefits of this herb. They also contain mucilage which coats and soothes irritated mucus membranes, whilst their expectorant qualities help to expel congestion from the lungs.
Its effective in alleviating conditions such as bronchitis with a persistent cough, dry hacking coughs, whooping cough, colds, flu, and sinusitis. The saponins contained in Mullein also exhibit anti-viral properties, further adding to its effectiveness against flu and other complaints caused by viruses.
Mullein can be used to help to detoxify the lungs after quitting smoking. It can also help to cleanse and soothe the bronchial tubes and strengthen the lungs.
ANTI-BACTERIAL - This makes it helpful for disinfecting wounds, soothing burns, and treating hemorrhoids. Whilst pneumonia is a serious disease that should always be treated accordingly, using Mullein during respiratory flu can help to keep the lungs clear and may prevent pneumonia from setting in.
DIGESTIVE - The mucus busting benefits of Mullein don’t stop at clearing mucus from the lungs, it can also be used to remove the mucoid layer from the small intestine. Too much mucus in the small intestine can interfere with nutrient uptake and compromise the body’s ability to deliver nutrients into the bloodstream.
Mullein replaces the “bad” mucus with a healing mucilage that coats and soothes the gut wall and provides lubrication that enables an easier and smoother bowel movement.
