Mullein is used for everything from burns, to wounds, to gout. It is popular to use it for any kind of colds and flus, lung problems and stomach upset. It is easy to use!
To make the tea with dried leaves, simply add a small handful of them to an 8-ounce (240-ml) cup of boiling water, then steep them for 15–30 minutes. To prevent throat irritation, use a strainer or cheesecloth to remove as many of the leaves as possible. You can add honey, lemon or my favorite, cinnamon!
You can apply the fresh leaves to wounds, but be careful, because they can be an irritant.
You can purchase teas, oils and medicines with mullein at most stores.
