Dried Mullein Leaf 

Common mullein (Verbascum thapsus) is easily recognized by its large, fleshy, gray-green, hairy leaves and tall yellow flower spikes, also known as the “witches torch.” The dried flower spikes can be burned in the same way you would use a torch! 

Historically, the flowers were used to produce yellow-green dye, while the leaves were used to insulate footwear and to make candle wicking. 


Due to its high mucilage content, the mullein leaf is used today to make topical ointments, salves, and skin creams. Mullein leaf is also used to make herbal teas, syrups, and throat lozenges.


Our mullein is sustainably wild foraged from our family land. Mullein is a traditional medicinal of the American Southwest, with a history of both medicinal and spiritual usage.  A moistening demulcent, mullein is excellent for soothing dry, stubborn coughs and easing asthma symptoms. 


The fine “hairs” on the mullein leaf may cause irritation if not properly filtered out of infusions. For best results, we recommend using a strainer lined with a coffee filter when working with mullein.
