Organic Mullein Leaf Tincture - Alcohol Free 30ml

Mullein (Verbascum thapsus) is a plant that has been used for centuries in traditional herbal medicine for its potential health benefits. Mullein tincture is a concentrated liquid extract made from the leaves and flowers of the mullein plant.

Benefits

Herbal medicine specialists, naturopaths, and other types of health practitioners may recommend mullein for:

  • Asthma
  • Cough
  • Common cold
  • Bronchitis
  • COPD

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. Studies show that demulcents create a soothing anti-inflammatory coating over mucous membranes. Demulcents contain a higher amount of mucilage than other plants. All plants produce at least a little of this sticky substance, which provides soothing relief to the mucous membranes.

Fighting Viral Infections
Scientists studying medicinal herbs in test-tube studies have been encouraged to see that mullein may have some strong antiviral effects. One study showed it was particularly useful against the influenza virus. Others have suggested it might be useful fighting a strain of a herpes virus. Because these were both test-tube studies, though, more research is needed to be sure of its effectiveness in people.

Easing Ear Infections
Because mullein has some antibacterial properties, preliminary research shows that mullein may be useful in treating middle ear infections in children. Instead of tea, the treatment consists of ear drops with mullein, St. John's Wort, and garlic in oil or glycerin. However, scientists must perform more research to find the best way to treat ear infections with mullein. There have been no scientific studies on this particular treatment thus far.
