Description: Our Mullein Leaf tincture is an infused alcoholic solution, at a ratio of 1:4 (25% alcohol). A tall biennial plant native to Europe and central Asia that can reach a height of up to 2.5 metres. The leaves rise from a basal rosette and are oblong to lanceolate in shape, greeny-grey in colour with covered in fine downy hairs on both sides. The upright stem above the leaf rosette forms a compact spire of flowers. The individual flowers that make up the spike and consist of 5 obovate petals which are yellow in colour and approx. 2.5cm in diameter.
Brief History: John Gerard in the 16th century wrote about mullein leaf being used by farmers of the day as an expectorant to treat their cows ‘…give their cattel the leaves to drink against the cough of the lungs, being an excellent approved medicine for the same, whereupon they call it Bullocks Lungwort’. Modern herbal veterinarians still prescribe the use of the herb as an expectorant today, but it’s also used as an astringent poultice for minor wounds and to treat urinary tract infections in animals.
