Love Your Lungs: How To Make a Potent Mullein Infusion
I am often asked how one uses mullein for its lung supportive properties. Today, I am glad to share with you this new video lesson on how to prepare a simple, yet, powerful preparation with the fuzzy leaves of mullein (Verbascum thapsus).
Mullein has a long history of use for supporting the respiratory system. It tones and soothes (demulcent) lung tissue into a healthier state to be used after illness (bronchitis), or insult (smoke, smog, etc); or during an illness: helpful in bronchitis, laryngitis, coughs (anti-tussive) (anti-spasmodic), and asthma.
Mullein is an expectorant, which means it helps bring out unwanted phlegm. All of this while having a calming effect!
