How To Make Mullein Tincture & It’s Uses

Hey guys I hope you are enjoying your Labor Day weekend! For this holiday video we make some Mullein Tincture for use as an expectorant. Mullein is a common roadside herb that has a reputation for boosting the immune system and relieving chest congestion. There are a lot of ways to use this plant for medicine but I prefer the tincture form the most as I find it easiest to use.

Mullein tincture can be made with any species of Mullein and like my other tincture videos we use vodka as a menstruum due it’s cost and effectiveness. When you gather your Mullein for medicine it’s best to gather leaves and flowers if you can, however the leaves from a first year rosette will work fine. Once you have your leaves and or flowers, clean them up then fill a mason jar to the one cup mark with fresh herb. After that simply cover with your extractant of choice, cover, and let sit for 4 – 8 weeks, strain and bottle for an effective herbal remedy to relieve chest congestion.
