Uses for Mullein include, but not limited to:
We keep dried mullein leaf on hand year round, this is why: A few summers ago my daughter was stung by something, it began to swell immedately into a raised circular bump...but it didn't stop there. The swelling went into her hand & fingers and then climbed up her arm, in a panic I gave her Benadryl. This brought the swelling down a bit for a couple hours but overall it was not helpfull. Because we didn't know what stung her, choosing a homeopathic remedy was difficult and our homeopath was busy with another patient. I contacted an herbalist friend who suggested I make a poultice out of mullein and aloe. I placed the poultice on my daughter and literally watched the swelling disapear completely in less than 5 minutes and never came back... WOW! As I learned more about this valuable herb, we began to use it in tea with a little local raw honey during the occational colds for coughs and stuffy heads. It truly works as an expectorant and calms the cough.
