Mullein Leaf for persistent coughs


I am playing naturalist for the day. 

I do not like to take medicine and I rarely force anything down my kids’ throats.  Just never know what it is I am giving them.  And truly, when they were infants, nothing really seemed to work except for fever reducers. 

But there is ONE thing that I live by.  I tell anyone seeking lay medical advice about my “trick” medicine. 

Mullein Leaves Liquid - 1 oz

If any of us Knights here at the Knightly manor start up coughing (like we are all doing during this lovely time they call spring here in Texas), I am quick to grab my little bottle of Mullein Leaf.  It is a completely natural leaf extract that promotes healthy mucous membranes.  (That creates a lovely word picture, doesn’t it?!?!)

My kids despise anything of awkward mediciney taste, so I add the dark colored Mullein Leaf to their orange juice cup in the mornings (or in the middle of the night) and they don’t say a word (that is a miracle in itself!). 

I buy this stuff from our local Herb Mart/Health food store but here is the link for you to find all sorts of mullein leaf products.  The only thing I can vouch for is the liquid form. 

May you have healthy and quiet lungs!

    Hi! That looks like a good remedy. I am one of those who wished I was all natural, so I can take any advice in that area.

    Thanks for leaving me a comment- and for the quotes! Very cute! I can totally see those on a funky colorful painting 🙂

    Does it make you stop coughing or help your coughing to be more effective?

    It actually helps me stop coughing-and I am certain it breaks it up a bit as well. My friend’s kids have asthma and she gives it to them regularly. I am not sure if it smooths or what. I just know it works for me (and my kids). In fact, I am heading into the kitchen to take some now! 🙂
