    Herb gardening for health with our large selection of medicinal herb plants.

    Mullein is an easily grown medicinal herb, preferring less than ideal soil conditions, it's often found by roadsides and in areas considered to have waste soil, such as gravel. Mullein grows to be a tall, erect plant producing flower spikes that yield beautiful yellow flowers. It stays anchored by a long fibrous tap root, much like a carrot, and produces only large hair covered leaves in its first year. Flowering in its second spring, Mullein is capable of self fertilization and produces hundreds of tiny brown seeds which are a favorite food for finches and other seed loving birds.

    The plant's down covering of hairs is irritating to the touch and makes this stout little herb a beautiful deterrent to deer, rabbits and other garden pests. A hardy ornamental plant, Mullein's beautiful yellow flowers are a great attractant for bees and butterflies. Mullein seeds have been used by fish poachers to stun fish who eat them, as they contain a mild toxin not found to affect humans.

    Herbalists recommend mullein leaves as one of the safest and most useful herbal lung tonics. The plant's natural antiseptic and analgesic properties make this a highly effective yet gentle herbal remedy. The leaves have an expectorant and soothing action on the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract. Take mullein for easing the symptoms of asthma, chronic bronchitis, dry coughs, and laryngitis. Mullein is also a useful lymphatic cleanser, and you may find it effective for helping to relieve skin problems like psoriasis.

    For a calming cure for respiratory distress try mixing Mullein with Lobelia and Horehound.
