Hey all I come across Mullein in my travels,it being in flower in July in eastern U.S.I found a website on uses and preparation of the plant.If there are any other uses, please list them for me.Here's the website(A Modern Herbal | Mullein, Great). 1.The dried leaves are sometimes smoked in an ordinary tobacco pipe to relieve the irritation of the respiratory mucus membranes, and will completely control, it is said, the hacking cough of consumption. They can be employed with equal benefit when made into cigarettes, for asthma and spasmodic coughs in general.Great Mullein has been used as an alternative medicine for centuries, and in many countries throughout the world, the value of Mullein as a proven medicinal herb is now backed by scientific evidence. 2.Fomentations and poultices( a soft, usually heated substance that is spread on cloth and then placed on the skin to heal a sore or reduce pain) of the leaves have been found serviceable in hemorrhoidal complaints. 3.Mullein is said to be of much value in diarrhea, from its combination of demulcent with astringent properties, by this combination strengthening the bowels at the same time. In diarrhea the ordinary infusion is generally given, but when any bleeding of the bowels is present, the decoction(the act or process of boiling usually in water so as to extract the flavor or active principle) prepared with milk is recommended. 4.An oil produced by macerating Mullein flowers in olive oil in a corked bottle, during prolonged exposure to the sun, or by keeping near the fire for several days, is used as a local application in country districts in Germany for piles and other mucus membrane inflammation, and also for frost bites and bruises. Mullein oil is recommended for earache and discharge from the ear, and for any eczema of the external ear and its canal. 5.A decoction of its roots was held to be an alleviation for toothache, and also good for cramps and convulsions, and an early morning draught of the distilled water of the flowers to be good for gout. I suppose by going to sites like Youtube will be also helpful on how to further prepare the plant.
