Mullein is my absolute favorite when it comes to all things lung related. This gentle herb seems to focus its energy in a very effective way in the lungs, and it gets to work fast!
Mullein helps remove any 'gunk' from with the lungs via its gentle yet thorough expectorant abilities. It helps the lungs purge themselves of mucous and phlegm that have taken their fill of toxins, pollutants, and foreign matter so that it can be given healthy replacements.
Mullein has been traditionally as a tonic tea by people with asthma, COPD, emphysema, bronchitis, inflammation, respiratory allergies, recurring congestion, smoker's cough, exercise-induced lung strain, and anxiety-related breathing issues.
Mullein is calming, soothing, comforting, and very grounding. The tea on its own is actually very pleasant for those who like an 'earthy' taste in their tea. When combined with herbs that have stronger flavor profiles, the flavor of mullein will usually be lost.
