Majestic Mullein

January 22, 2017

 

Majestic Mullein (Verbascum thapsus) in flower in the garden. 

 

The beautiful soft leaves of Mullein are so suggestive of it's properties, which include demulcent (reducing inflammation of the mucous membranes), expectorant (thinning mucous and encouraging expectoration), and vulnerary (aids in the healing of wounds).

 

This herb is one of the oldest known medicinal plants and has been used for centuries to treat respiratory tract infections , fevers, inflammation, earache, kidney and pelvic inflammation. It can be used topically in wound care.

 

This one just popped up in my rose garden backed by Catnip (Nepeta cataria). No planting required!  It's our second season in our new home and I'm constantly amazed and grateful for the beautiful herbs that have found their way into my world.  

 

Aren't plants wonderful 🌱🌿  #herbalmedicine #plantpower #lovemygarden #oamaruapothecary
