Native to the cool temperate climates of Europe and Asia¸ Mullein (verbascum thapsus) is a tall¸ yellow-flowered plant often seen today growing wild in Britain and North America. Mullein is also known as Lady’s Foxglove¸ Velvet Plant¸ Shepard’s Herb and Old Man’s Flannel. It has an interesting history of practical and cosmetic use. Anciently¸ fresh Mullein stalks were dipped in melted fat¸ ignited and carried as flaming tapers in ceremonial processions. The large¸ soft¸ hair-covered leaves were used as diapers by some early Indians and the leaves were also stuffed in shoes to keep thinly shod feet warm in the winter. Today¸ Mullein can be used as a floral rinse to brighten blond hair and the leaves and flowers contain mucilage and are valued for their soothing effects. Mullein is usually made into a tea either by itself or with Sage¸ Marjoram or Chamomile. It is enjoyed by many boiled in milk and sweetened with honey.
