Mullein, Verbascum Thapsus, is a plant that has made its way all over the world. The great Mullein or common Mullein is a species of Mullein native to Europe, Northern Africa, Asia, America and Australia. It is a hairy biennial plant that can grow to 2m tall or more. Mullein is often prepared as a soothing tea or tonic for the respiratory system and to reduce inflammation. Mullein has been used medicinally for a long time. Dioscorides (64 AD) recorded it as useful for constipation, ruptures, convulsions, old coughs, toothaches, inflammations of the eyes, wounds and scorpion-stings.
