Mullein - Verbascum thapsus
A person with a hot, dry constitution might just love Mullein! This cooling, demulcent (moistening) herb is especially beneficial for the lungs. Let's explore its benefits.
I mentioned above Mullein's affinity for the lungs. Your lungs may feel irritated, dry, and tight when air quality is poor or when you have a cold with a dry cough that makes your chest sore. Mullein can help reduce the inflammation that's causing the soreness and relax and moisten the lungs. Paired with reducing the irritation, Mullein can be used to help you quit smoking.
Other benefits of Mullein include: relieving an earache, helping reduce back and muscle pain, helping calm cold sores, reducing hemorrhoids, and making the bladder muscles stronger.
