The Magic of Mullein
By Lee Ann | Jun 23, 2014
We are so lucky to have Mullein growing wild here in South Carolina. It is so prolific and easy to find and grow. This year a dear friend blessed me with a few “starter” plants, along with the warning to keep them contained or they would go everywhere. I brought them home and planted them about 2 months ago in an old galvanized tub. My goodness, they have grown! They are getting ready to bloom, so I will be harvesting, and drying, the leaves before that happens so that I can create all of the beneficial remedies that Mullein can make. This photograph is my pot full of Mullein just a couple of months after planting.
Mullein is commonly used for colds, bronchial inflammation, coughs and sore throats. In a tincture or syrup form, Mullein will supply your family with a natural assistant for these ailments. It can also be used to create a salve to help with wounds, frostbite and hemorrhoids. Touted as an all-around safe herb, Mullein is one you will want to harvest, grow or purchase for your herbal medicine cabinet!
