Overview - You may have noticed mullein growing alongside the roadway; it has a crown of wide leaves with a tall yellow flower spike reaching for the sky. Also known as Aaron's Rod, Shepherd's Club, Hare's Beard and Jupiter's Staff, this is a very useful herb to grow.

Medicinal Uses – Internally, Mullein is used for coughs and colds, bronchitis, and for its qualities as an expectorant. It is useful for hemorrhoids and diarrhea. It is anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, an antiseptic and is somewhat sedative. It can also be used for migraine headaches. Externally, Mullein oil is used for earache, for healing wounds and as an emollient. It makes a good salve. A poultice made from the leaves can be applied to sunburn, ulcers, piles and tumors.

Other Uses – Mullein flowers release a yellow dye when boiled in water. Depending on the mordant used, it will turn green or brown. A herbal flower infusion can be used to turn hair golden. The dried leaves can be rolled and used as candle wicks or can be used to start a fire. It can also be used as insulation or insecticide.

Herbs to Combine/Supplement - To make an effective expectorant, mix with coltsfoot or other herb that is supportive of the lungs.

Parts Used -  The leaves, root and flowers of the plant are all useful in herbal medicine. It can be taken as a tincture, an herbal tea, a gargle, a syrup or an oil.

Precautions - There are no known contraindications for mullein, even during pregnancy. Some people may experience a slight skin irritation.

Suggested - Mullein herbal tea can be easily made by placing 1 tablespoon of dried leaves in 1 cup of boiling water. Let the herb steep for 5 to 10 minutes. For a sweeter flavor, add some of the dried flowers. Children and elderly people may prefer a milk tea; just add the herb to milk instead of water.

  • Mullein oil is also very easy to make. For ear oil, steep flowers in olive oil for two weeks in a dark warm space and strain. For all purpose oil, add the seed, flowers and root to the oil for steeping.
