Botanical name: Verbascum thapsus

Historically, during funeral processions, the tall stems of mullein, which were covered in fine down, were lit as tapers. Dioscorides, known as the "father of pharmacognosy," was a Greek physician, pharmacologist, botanist, and author of De materia medica. He employed the herb historically to treat wasting disorders like tuberculosis and to treat coughs, toothaches, eye problems, and scorpion stings.

This herb is bitter and includes tannins, volatile oils, flavonoids, and mucilage. It possesses diuretic, analgesic, expectorant, and antibacterial properties in addition to lubricating and soothing tissues and accelerating recovery. Mullein is particular for tracheitis and bronchitis and is useful in the treatment of coughs and catarrh.
