Mullein is a hairy biennial weed that can grow up to 6 feet or more tall. It originated in Europe, Asia, and north Africa, and has become widespread in temperate areas throughout the world. It thrives best on open ground with full sun.

Mullein Flower extracts have been used to produce bight yellow or green dyes. Mullein leaves and flowers have been valued for their medicinal qualities since ancient times. Their value for healing was recognized by Native Americans soon after the plant’s introduction to the western hemisphere, early in the 18th century.

Mullein is best known as an herb for lung conditions: chest colds, coughs, bronchitis, asthma, and pertussis. Both demulcent and astringent, it reduces pain and inflammation, calms spasms, and is antiseptic and mildly sedative. These qualities make it a helpful herb for inflammation or bleeding in the urinary tract or colon. Traditional uses of Mullein include smoking the leaves, as a method of reaching the lungs directly, and also as an aid to quitting tobacco smoking.
