WHY I TAKE MULLIEN LEAF



My primary 'element' is Metal, which, according to ancient beliefs, governs the LUNGS. Throughout my life, my lungs have always been a source of strength and vitality. However, about 20 years ago, they transitioned from being my pillar of strength to becoming a weakness that requires nurturing and care. This shift in my health prompted me to explore various ways to support my lungs, leading me to discover the benefits of Mullien.


Mullien has become a trusted ally in my wellness journey, as I incorporate it, in the form of drops or tea, into my daily routine to provide targeted support for my lungs.


Those of you who know my work, know that I recommend, before introducing any substance into the body, to always conduct an energy test to determine if my body requires it at that moment. This practice ensures that the substances we consume are in harmony with our body's unique chemistry.


Mullien is known for its anti-inflammatory and expectorant properties, which can help alleviate respiratory issues and promote overall lung function.



Mullein Leaf: A Natural Remedy for Respiratory Health

Mullein (Verbascum thapsus) is a plant known for its tall stature and fuzzy leaves, native to Europe, Asia, and North Africa but also widely naturalized in North America. Beyond its ornamental value, mullein has been utilized for centuries in herbal medicine, particularly for its benefits to respiratory health.


Description and Traditional Use: The leaves of the mullein plant are large, soft, and covered with fine hairs, giving them a distinctive feel.


Traditionally, various parts of the plant, including the leaves and flowers, have been used to treat respiratory conditions such as asthma, bronchitis, and dry coughs. The dried leaves are commonly used in herbal teas, extracts, and poultices.


Benefits for the Lungs:

  1. Expectorant Properties: Mullein is valued for its ability to promote the expulsion of mucus from the lungs. This makes it beneficial for conditions where congestion or excessive phlegm production impairs breathing.

  2. Soothing and Anti-inflammatory: The mucilage content in mullein leaves helps to soothe irritated mucous membranes in the respiratory tract. It can reduce inflammation, easing discomfort associated with respiratory conditions.

  3. Antimicrobial Activity: Mullein possesses antimicrobial properties that can help combat respiratory infections caused by bacteria or viruses, potentially aiding in faster recovery from illnesses such as bronchitis.

  4. Antioxidant Effects: As an antioxidant, mullein leaf helps protect lung tissue from oxidative stress caused by pollutants, smoking, or other environmental factors.


How to Use Mullein Leaf:

  • Herbal Tea: Steep 1-2 teaspoons of dried mullein leaves in hot water for 10-15 minutes. Drink up to three times a day.

  • Steam Inhalation: Add dried mullein leaves to hot water, cover your head with a towel, and inhale the steam to relieve congestion.

  • Tinctures and Extracts: Available commercially, these concentrated forms are convenient for those preferring a more potent dose.
