Mullein is recommended for:
COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)
Although mullein is primarily recommended for breathing difficulties, it’s an herb anti-inflammatory
with properties, so it heals more than respiratory symptoms. In addition, mullein is an expectorant, which means it helps the body expel excess mucus.
Mullein also provides pain relief and healing properties for ear infections. I developed a middle ear infection this Tuesday, and I immediately went into action by creating mullein oil ear drops. In addition, I used the tea blend I made to help my respiratory system during covid. As of yesterday (Thursday), I felt a million times better than when the symptoms first kicked in. Mullein works for ear infections because it helps kill certain types of bacteria, including Staphylococcus aureus (the most common cause of staph infections) and Escherichia coli (or E. coli).
There was a 2003 study of 171 children with otalgia (ear pain or an earache), those who used ear drops containing mullein (and supporting herbs like garlic, Calendula, St. John’s Wort, lavender, vitamin E, and olive oil) had statistically significant improvement in ear pain over three days. In addition, it showed that the children who were given ear drops alone had a better response than the children who were given ear drops along with amoxicillin.
Here is the recipe I used to make my own mullein ear drops:
1/2 teaspoon of Mullein
1/2 teaspoon of St. John’s Wart
1/2 teaspoon of Ginger Root
1/4 cup of Sweet Almond oil or Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Heat the herbs and the oil for no longer than 20 mins and not reach a temperature more than 130 degrees if heating on a stove. I would recommend investing in a MagicalButter machine if you’re interested in infusion oils regularly.
In enclosing, you need to have mullein on hand for any respiratory concerns, infections, and its anti-
inflammatory properties for pain relief. Mullein will be available for sale on our website starting 2/2/22.
