How It Works:
Native to the cool temperate climates of Europe and Asia, Mullein
(Verbascum thapsus) is a tall, yellow-flowering plant often seen
today growing wild in Britain and North America. Mullein is also
known as Lady's Foxglove, Velvet Plant, Shepherd's Herb and Old
Man's Flannel. It has an interesting history of practical and
cosmetic use. Anciently, fresh Mullein stalks were dipped in melted
fat, ignited, and carried as flaming tapers in ceremonial
processions. The large, soft, hair-covered leaves were used as
diapers by some early Indians and the leaves were also stuffed in
shoes to keep thinly shod feet warm in the winter. Today, Mullein
can be used as a floral rinse to brighten blond hair. The leaves and
flowers contain mucilage and are valued for their soothing effects.
Mullein is usually made into a tea either by itself or with Sage,
Marjoram, or Chamomile. It is enjoyed by many boiled in milk and
sweetened with honey.
The best way to make a good cup of tea is by the infusion method.
Place one tea bag in a cup and add no more than 6 oz. of boiling
water. Let steep for 3 minutes. Press the bag before removing to
enhance flavor. Add honey to sweeten.
