PRODUCT DETAILS: 
Verbascum thapsus (mullein) is an herb that has a towering flower stalk. Growing over 7 feet tall, it is easily seen in fields and pastures. It was brought to America from Europe over 200 years ago for its use for pulmonary and respiratory conditions. The Native Americans smoked the dried leaves in ceremonial and medicinal ways.

MEDICINAL PROPERTIES

  • Mullen has been used widely for an exceptionally long time to treat respiratory conditions.
  • Research suggests that mullein tea works by reducing inflammation and relaxing the muscles in the respiratory tract.
  • It has also been used to treat tuberculosis, bronchitis, tonsillitis, and pneumonia.
  • Some studies show that mullein extract was effective against influenza and ear infections.

     “Mullein contains over 46 different groups of compounds most notably: mucilage, saponins, coumarins, and glycosides. Some of the compounds that have received attention in the scientific literature are; verbascose, verbascoside, verbasterol, rotenone, mucilage, heptaose, coumarin, aucubin, and ascorbic acid, in addition to the minerals, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, and selenium.”

INTERESTING FACTS

  • Viable mullein seed can lay dormant in the soil for more than a hundred years. When the ground is disturbed, the mullein seed only needs 5 seconds of light to initiate germination!
  • Mullen will flourish only for a few years after the soil is disturbed.
  • Whitetail deer feed heavily on mullein right after the first snowfall. In some studies, Mullein counts for 20-30 percent of a whitetail's diet in winter.
  • Pre-revolutionary war, settlers would crush the seeds and drop them into the water to poison then catch fish. Although effective (tried it), this is illegal in modern times.
