The silvery green leaves and bright yellow flowers of mullein have been utilized for thousands of years in traditional herbalism. Mullein has been used traditionally as a remedy for the respiratory tract, including bronchitis.
Mullein helps remove any ‚gunk’ from with the lungs via its gentle yet thorough expectorant abilities. It helps the lungs purge themselves of mucous and phlegm that have taken their fill of toxins, pollutants, and foreign matter so that it can be given healthy replacements.
Like many herbs, mullein has natural mucilage which soothes, coats, and protects the respiratory system from the mouth to the lungs.
In many cases, recurring lung issues are wrapped up in an inflammation cycle. Mullein is a gentle anti-inflammatory that focuses on the lungs, so it can help reduce inflammation in the various passages and tissues in the lungs giving way to healing and easier breathing.
