How to make Mullein Leaf Tea

Dried mullein leaves, flowers and roots can all be used to heal these lung abating conditions. A mullein tea is the most common method of preparing the herb and the recipe below makes one cup of tea, which can be consumed up to 3 times a day. Using the tea as a gargle once it has cooled down is very effective for coughing and soreness in the throat. 

Mullein Leaf Tea 

Ingredients
1 ½ cups boiling water
1-2 teaspoons dried mullein leaves and/or flowers (flowers make a sweeter tea)
1 teaspoon dried spearmint (optional for flavor)
1-2 teaspoons honey (optional)

Directions
Steep the mullein leaves in hot water inside a tea ball or strainer for 15 minutes. Add honey if you like a sweeter tea.
If the flavor of mullein doesn’t agree with you, another great way to reap its benefits is by preparing an inhalant. To do this, boil the leaves in water for 5 minutes and inhale the steam to relieve coughs, congestion and asthma. Mullein can fight asthma and keep away colds because it actually prevents infections from settling into the delicate respiratory tissue by curing dryness and constriction.

Rather ironically, mullein can also be smoked, thus rendering itself the only type of cigarette that could be considered beneficial in treating lung conditions.

Mullein is primarily a respiratory herb, although its benefits reach much further than our lungs. The herb is a diuretic and thus can relieve urinary tract inflammation when taken through a tea. It can also be used to decrease inflammation in the bowels, helping to reduce colitis and other issues. Mullein extract infused with olive oil has been used to reduce the inflammation of earaches, sore joints, insect bites and hemorrhoids because of its soothing properties. Simple poultices made out of fresh, mashed mullein leaves and flowers mixed with water can also be used to relieve, burns, boils and sores.

Plant some Lobelia Medicinal herb seeds today in a pot, container or a small spot in your garden

Lobelia organic Herb Seeds

Home Farm Herbery Lobelia Seeds (Lobelia inflata) are Organic and we have just harvested enough to share with our favorite Local Harvest Customers so buy early.

Annual. Press tiny seed into surface of flat and water lightly. Boom water or mist, light dependent germinator. Prefers full sun to partial shade and lots of water. Useful anti-spasmodic & expectorant when combined with more soothing herbs. Use caution; one of its common names is puke weed.
Lobelia is an overwintering annual or annual. Native to the central, southern, and eastern US.  It is a diminutive plant with white flowers that have light-blue spots.  These flowers give way to the characteristic “inflated” seedpods. Lobelia is an indispensable antispasmodic.  Low dose botanical! A liquid extract of the seed is commonly used and can cause the impressive expulsion of thick, ropey mucous from sinuses and bronchi.

Lobelias prefer part to full sun, rich, moist soil, and much water. Short-lived seed. Light-dependent germinators. Sow seed in spring or fall. Average germ time in warm soils is 1 to 3 weeks. Water very gently.  Extra advice on lobelia inflata--if you're really trying to grow a patch for production, it makes sense to follow the natural cycles for this plant.  In nature, germination is in the fall, after which the low-lying rosette overwinters, and flowers and goes to seed in the next spring to early summer.  If you try to grow it as a spring annual it will probably bolt to flower when the soils warm up in the summer and give very little yield.

Our Home Farm Herbery Lemon Balm is a wonderful healing herb, but it also makes a great culinary herb. Lemon balm has been used as a both a culinary herb and medicinal herb since the 1500's.

 

Medicinal uses: The crushed leaves, when rubbed on the skin, are used as a repellant for mosquitoes. Lemon balm is also used medicinally as an herbal tea, or in extract form. It is claimed to have antibacterial and antiviral properties (it is effective against herpes simplex).Lemon balm extract was identified as a potent in vitro inhibitor of GABA transaminase, which explains anxiolytic effects. The major compound responsible for GABA transaminase inhibition activity in lemon balm was then found to be rosmarinic acid. Lemon balm and preparations thereof also have been shown to improve mood and mental performance. *These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA.
