What Mullein herb Is:

Another common name for this towering biennial, flannel leaf, is a tip-off to how the plant looks and feels. Its big tobacco-like leaves, stalk, and little yellow flowers, which sprout from the top of the stem, all are coated with a flannel-like down. Just as you might don a flannel shirt to stay warm, old-timers used to line their shoes with mullein leaves to keep out winter cold. Indigenous to Europe but naturalized in various parts of North America, mullein also is said to prevent colds and breathing ailments of all kinds. Smoking the dried leaves was a common folk remedy for congestion and respiratory infections. Traditionally, a yellow dye made from its flowers was used as a hair rinse, and women once rubbed its leaves on their cheeks instead of applying rouge.

Highly valued has a respiratory remedy, mullein has expectorant, demulcent, diuretic, anti-inflammatory, nervine, anti-spasmodic and astringent actions.
