Mullein has been used since at least 1st century Rome, where it was mentioned in the writings of Dioscorides, a Greek physician, pharmacologist, and botanist. It is native to northern Africa, the Canary and Madeira Islands, Asia, and Europe. Our mullein leaf is organically grown in Croatia. It works well both on its own and when combined with other herbs.
Mullein is soothing to the lungs and can help to expel mucus and relax the muscles of the lungs. It is best used in cases of dry, hoarse coughs, or wet, productive coughs with thick mucus. Some herbalists recommend combining mullein with milk when taking it internally, although this will depend on the ability of the individual to digest dairy. In addition, when used externally, mullein can be highly effective for a variety of issues, including ear infections and eczema (especially around the ear).
