Mullein has been popular as a remedy for respiratory problems such as cough, bronchitis, and asthma. It is also used to soothe throat irritation and clear congestion, control diarrhea, and increase urine production. Mullein has been used for bladder and kidney conditions. Externally, it is used to treat wounds, earaches, middle ear infections, and insect bites, calm the pain and inflammation of hemorrhoids, and soften the skin. It is approved by the German Commission E for support of the respiratory tract in ailments such as cough or bronchitis.

Bronchitis, cough, influenza, and sore throat. Mullein relieves upper respiratory congestion in two ways. First, its mucilage soothes injured areas of the mouth and throat. Second, it contains compounds that act on the central nervous system to move phlegm out of the body. Mullein stimulates the cough reflex, but not the fine hairs lining the respiratory passages. This herb tones the mucous membranes of the respiratory system and reduces inflammation while promoting expectoration. These actions are useful in treating chronic bronchitis if there is a hard cough with soreness.

Cuts and scrapes, diarrhea, ear infection, and hemorrhoids. In Germany, mullein flowers are steeped in olive oil and then strained to make a remedy for ear infections. Mullein contains mucilages that coat and soothe areas of the epithelium lining the ear canal that have been injured by infection. Mullein contains tannins, substances that constrict tissue and reduce bleeding. Wounds and hemorrhoids respond favorably when mullein is used externally. The presence of tannins also helps to treat diarrhea by reducing inflammation in the intestines.


Recommended Use

In the United States, the mullein products that are easiest to find are cold-extracted “oils” in which chopped mullein leaf is steeped in glycerin rather than alcohol. The absence of alcohol makes the liquid safe for treating coughs in children. Mullein also is used in oils and teas, and mullein teas can be made into compresses. While the herb can be used by itself, it is frequently combined with anise, coltsfoot, licorice, and/or marshmallow in commercially prepared teas for the relief of coughs and congestion. (See ANISE, COLTSFOOT, LICORICE, and/or MARSHMALLOW ROOT.)

If you have a history of cancer, you should consult your doctor before taking this herb internally, since the tannin found in mullein is thought to have both cancer-promoting and cancer-fighting actions. You should not take mullein if you are pregnant or nursing. Mullein seeds should be avoided altogether, as they are toxic and may cause poisoning.
