Mullein for lungs – everything you need to know

A gentle, relaxing, and calming antioxidant for your lungs


Mullein has been used for centuries as a herbal remedy for respiratory ailments. It has anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic properties that help to soothe the lungs. In recent years, it has been shown to be effective in treating asthma, bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and other lung conditions. It is known for its ability to soothe and protect the lungs, making it an excellent choice for those who suffer from respiratory problems. In fact, mullein has been shown to be beneficial for a variety of lung-related issues. Mullein contains substances that act on the mucus membranes and cause them to contract and dry out, thus reducing inflammation and making it easier to cough up mucous.

As a well-known expectorant, mullein helps remove excess mucus from the lungs and soothes mucous membranes. People suffering from the symptoms of bronchitis, severe cough, colds, and asthma can get relief from mullein (leaves and flowers) as a tea or in the form of OTC herbal supplements. The natural washing substances contained in mullein leaves and flowers expel mucus from the lung walls. It also contains mucilage, a gelatinous substance that soothes irritated mucous membranes.

Mullein is a herb that is harvested in many regions throughout North America and can be found in many forms, including as an essential oil, a tincture, a leaf, or a flower. 

There are several ways to use mullein to improve your lung health. The most common way is to drink mullein tea. Mullein tea can be made by steeping the leaves or flowers in hot water for about 10 minutes. You can also take mullein leaf supplements or essential oil capsules to get the benefits of the herb. Additionally, you can use mullein oil topically to help soothe and protect your lungs. Simply rub the oil on your chest and throat before bedtime.
