Mullein - Nature's Respiratory Herb
Mullein has been used since ancient times in Western herbal medicine as a remedy for skin, throat and breathing problems. The ancient Greek physician, pharmacologist, and botanist, Dioscorides recommended the herb for diseases of the lung.
Mullein is an expectorant, which means it helps the body expel excess mucus, usually by helping make your coughs more productive, to bring up mucus that may be settling in the chest or in the throat.
It is also a demulcent. Demulcents are substances that calm irritation or inflammation in the skin or internal parts of the nose, mouth, or throat. Mullein has anti-catarrhal actions which helps the body remove excess mucous from the body.
These specific actions of mullein are why it is a suitable herbal ingredient for respiratory conditions such as the common cold, upper respiratory tract infections, cough, bronchitis, and asthma. Mullein is also a vulnerary, which assists in the healing of wounds.
