Plant Description: Native to the cool temperate climates of Europe and Asia. It has naturalized itself extensively in the United States and Australia, and commonly grows in poor, hard packed soil in places such as highway embankments and clear cut areas. Mullein is a biennial plant. It's leaves, obovate-lanceolate, are formed into a basal rosette, and covered with fine, hair-like fuzz and feels somewhat woolly. It is a tall plant, and the small, yello, sessile flowers grow in cylindrical spikes close to the long stalk and bloom only a few at a time. The flowers alternately bloom, then wither, then become seed pods. Mullein is a prolific seeder, with each seed pod containing 50 or more seeds in each.
Use: Make a tea by pouring approximately 2 cups of boiling water over 2 heaped tsp of herb. Let steep for 3-5 minutes. In general, sip a cup before breakfast, and another 2 hours after dinner.
Cautions & Interactions: Keep out of reach of children.
