Verbascum Thapsus

Mullein is a biennial herb that grows freely here on the farm. We harvest leaves throughout the first season of their rosette stage and air dry them whole in controlled conditions. At the end of their first year we harvest their roots after the first frosts and clean, cut, and dry them. In the second year of it's growth, we harvest flowers and leaves.

Mullein is primarily thought of as an herb for lung health and can be tinctured, smoked or infused as a tea to receive its benefits. Mullein’s medicinal value is as an expectorant and anti-microbial for lung infections involving a wet or dry cough. It can be made into a tea or tincture and used when winter cold and flu symptoms get you down.

The first year roots are said to be good medicine for back issues and can help restore synovial fluids.
