Mullein leaf is an herb I keep in my pantry. We don’t get a lot of colds in our house but when we do we turn to mullein. Mullein is a expectorant that helps to expel mucus from the chest. It helps to lubricate lungs and throat membranes as well as reduce swelling. Traditionally mullein has been used to remedy bronchitis, croup, pneumonia, asthma, and whooping cough.
- Fill a sauce pan with a few cups of water and about a 1/2 cup of mullein leaf.
- Bring to a boil
- Take pan off stove and place a towel over head and inhale the steam for about 7-10 mins.
- bring to boil 8oz of water with 1 1/2 TBS loose mullein leaf.
- steep for 7 mins.
- pour thru a strainer like this one.

Hope this information helps to keep you and your family healthy this fall and winter 🙂
