Mullein is a striking biennial plant (meaning it has a two-year life cycle) that grows a tall flowering spike its second year. The name Mullein comes from Latin word “Mollis,” which means soft. And soft is just what Mullein’s leaves are. Soft and fuzzy and cooling and moistening.
Mullein is a gentle herb that has been for used thousands of years. Dioscordes, a Greek physician in the Roman army, wrote of its use for lung support in his medical book 2,000 years ago. While Mullein originated in Europe and Asia, it now grows pretty much all over the world. You may even have seen its distinctive, tall stalks of small yellow flowers and large fuzzy leaves growing by the roadside.
You don’t have to have marched with the Roman army to enjoy the benefits of this gentle herb today. You can have Mullein Leaf in your home today, with Cedar Bear’s soothing alcohol-free Mullein Leaf.
Mullein Leaf soothes and moistens irritated respiratory and digestive tissues and supports urinary health. It has powerful antioxidants that help clear mucus and soothe raw, inflamed tissues and support the immune system in doing its job protecting our health.
Mullein Leaf’s primary action is in supporting healthy respiratory function by moistening dry, irritated respiratory and lung tissues and helping reduce dry, irritable, barky coughs. Mullein Leaf soothes irritated respiratory tissues that have been exposed to airborne irritants like smoke, smog, dust and pollens, helps cleanse and soothe bronchial tissues, and strengthens the lungs. The saponins in Mullein Leaf help loosen mucous and phlegm and cause a healthy expectorant coughing action that helps clear lungs and respiratory tissues. These saponins work like scrubbing bubbles on the respiratory and digestive tracts.
Mullein Leaf is also mucilaginous and has special polysaccharides that contribute to the coating, soothing, and cooling action that Mullein Leaf has on irritated mucous membranes.
It’s the combination of mucus-loosening mucilage and soap-like tissue cleaning saponins that that helps make Mullein Leaf, along with all its other benefits to your health, so good at helping the body’s natural cough response be more productive.
Mullein Leaf supports your body with nutrients that help calm and reduce tension in muscles, lungs and bronchial tissues, help soothe headaches and nerves, and even help with sleep.
Mullein Leaf not only clears mucus in the respiratory system, but it also does the same in the small intestines so they can function better. Mullein Leaf also supports the bladder and urinary tract by strengthening and toning urinary tissues and helps reduce leaky bladder issues.
