Medicine Garden: Mullein

Verbascum thapsus, commonly known as Mullein, is a medicinal herb easily spotted along roadsides, in open grassy areas or pastures, and has been used to treat inflammatory lung and breathing disorders for centuries. Mullein’s ability to work with other phyto-antibiotics in our Ear Infection formula, make it a vital member of your home first aid kit. 

In the last decade, commercial interest in Mullein has been skyrocketing. Clinical studies on its ability to fight Tuberculosis (TB) revealed startling results. 

The researches state; “While the chemical drugs currently used against TB were synthetically engineered, natural compounds are once again playing a bigger role in the fight against TB. Plant extracts have been shown to be capable of inhibition comparable to that of Streptomycin, have shown activity against multidrug resistant TB, and have been shown to improve the immune response to TB both in vitro and in clinical trials.” 

Pharmaceutical science is increasingly beginning to realise that the “silver bullet” compounds we are attempting to engineer may have been present in nature all along.”
