6 key mullein benefits
Mullein has been used in herbal medicine for centuries and became particularly popular in Europe in the 1800s as a treatment for those with tuberculosis. Mullein is high in mucilage which is a substance found in plants that swells in water, forming a gel-like consistency which can be used to soothe irritated tissues in the body. Mullein also acts an expectorant, which means it helps remove mucus from the respiratory system. This makes it great for coughs and colds and other respiratory issues like asthma or bronchitis.
