Dosage and how to use

Brew:

To prepare it, pour one tablespoon of dried mullein with boiling water, and then let it brew, covered, for 15 minutes. The resulting infusion should be taken 2-3 times a day in small amounts. You can also drink half a glass at a time by adding raspberry juice or honey to the drink.

The mullein flower also has disinfecting properties, therefore the cooled infusion can be used for the care of, for example, acne-prone skin or for washing skin lesions or sensitive areas. It is also used in preparations such as shower gels, because it helps to cleanse the skin, while soothing irritations and not sensitizing.

Decoction: 

Two tablespoons of mullein, pour over a 1 liter of water. Then simmer the mixture for about 15 minutes, don't boil . It's best to drink half or a full cup a day

Oil for external use:

Two handfuls of fresh mullein flowers should be put into a jar and covered with about two glasses of olive oil. We leave the jar unscrewed for 2 weeks, shaking it from time to time. Then strain and keep the prepared oil in a cool and shaded place.

 

Side effects

None reported.

Contraindications
