Common mullein is a naturalized weed from Europe.  It was brought to North America from Europe and was commonly used as a remedy for cough and diarrhea.  Great Mullein has been used as an  alternative medicine for centuries, and in many countries throughout the world, the value of Great Mullein as a proven medicinal herb is now backed by scientific evidence. Some valuable constituents contained in Mullein are Coumarin and Hesperidin, they exhibit many healing abilities. Research indicates some of the uses as analgesic, antihistaminic, anti-inflammatory,  antioxidant, antiviral, bacteristat, cardio-depressant, estrogenic, fungicide, hypnotic, sedative and pesticide are valid. An infusion is taken internally for a wide range of chest complaints and also to treat diarrhea and bleeding of the lungs and bowels. Mullein leaves, root, and the flowers are anodyne, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antispasmodic, astringent, demulcent,  diuretic, emollient, expectorant, nervine, and vulnerary.
 
The dried leaves are sometimes smoked to relieve the irritation of the respiratory mucus membranes, and the hacking cough of consumption. They can be employed with equal benefit when made into cigarettes, for asthma and spasmodic coughs in general. Externally, a medicinal poultice of the leaves is applied to  sunburn, ulcers, and piles.
 
To brew a medicinal cup of  tea, use 1 to 2 teaspoons of dried leaves per cup of boiling water. Steep for  ten minutes. Drink up to three cups per day. Mullein has a bitter taste,  so add sugar or honey and lemon, or mix it with other herbs. In a tincture, take 1/2 to 1 teaspoon up to three times a day.
