Herbal portrait Mullein

Since time immemorial, Plants represent the food base for us humans.
Also since time immemorial we heal with the power of Plants.
In times when you can buy everything in the 'super'market or the pharmacy, the knowledge about Herbs and wild Plants and their preparation has almost been lost.
On the one hand, it is convenient when many things are so easy to buy, but it also makes us highly dependent on the existing structures and the fast-moving, bereft of meaning ruling system that is dissolving indirectly.

Self knowledge and -doing makes us free, strong and independent.
In addition to the Love of Nature and Plants, this is also my concern, why I want to preserve and pass on this knowledge.

Medicinal Plants
Every healing tradition on Earth has used the power of Plants for thousands of Years: from traditional European medicine to shamanic healers to the tried and tested recipes of Ayurveda and traditional Chinese or i.e. Thai medicine.
In the meantime, many active ingredients of medicinal Plants and their mode of action are also scientifically well-researched and used in medicines.
Almost all of these products are based on originally Natural active ingredients found in Plants.
In contrast to chemical drugs, however, the original medicinal Plants are better tolerated, have a more holistic effect and do not just relieve temporarily  symptoms.
Natural concoctions increase the effect and prevent side effects.
Added to this is the living Nature of the Plant, its subtle quality that an artificial material can never replace.

please note:
Always consult a doctor before using healing remedies and read disclaimer at the end of my abstract.

Mullein [Verbascum densiflorum] Family of the Thuebloon Family - (Figwort Family) [Scrophulariaceae], Königskerze

The Mullein as a biennial - rarely triannual medicinal Plant is one of the most striking Plants that I know.
In suitable locations, she can be far over two meters high and thus looks very powerful on us.
I have admired her since my earliest childhood, and sometimes it still seems to me almost miraculous how tall, strong and magical this Plant is.
Alone on the face of it, you feel proud, upright and self-confident.
Like many other Sun-Signature Plants, the Mullein helps us walk upright and proudly through Life.
In addition, many Myths and Stories still entwine around the Mullein, so that they represent a very exciting Plant for our children and juveniles.

There are about 300 species of the genus Verbascum.

Stories and Myths
The Mullein is a very old magic Plant around which many stories and myths entwine.
At Night, when the Moon is shining, the Elves dance around them and perform their round-dance.
She is considered a Plant that is in close contact with the Natural Beings.
The german name (Königskerze  = kings torch) for the Mullein has a very practical origin.
The Plant was previously dipped in wax, oil, resin or pitch, lit and used as a torch.
At the Celtic Solstice Festivals she was used for the Torchlight Processions.
Weather Plants are often 'Pointer Plants' for the upcoming weather.
They announce rain, banish lightning, hail, flood and storm, alleviate weather sensitivity.
The mullein is therefore also called Weather Candle and has always been used for weather magic or to ward off storms.
Shortly before a thunderstorm, the Mullein was often smudged together with (common) tansy [Tanacetum vulgare, syn.: Chrysanthemum vulgare] to ward off thunderstorm damage.
The Herb protects against lightning strikes and also has the power to avert other dark energies.
Therefore, the Mullein was also considered a strong protective Plant.

A tuft of Herbs was placed on the deceased's chest to make their Journey easier.
Odysseus also protected himself from the sorceress Circe with a Mullein.

Between August 15 and September 8 (as the Moon waned), her root was ritually collected and processed into (often) gold-clad amulets designed to provide protection, strengthen the body, rid it of harm and protect it from unwanted conception.
As Our Lady's Herb, she is still today in the Herb Bushes of Women involved as the center.
She is one of the most important Plants in the time of the Woman between the Feast of the Assumption on August 15 and the Birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary on September 12.
In Christian mythology, the Mullein was also called Himmelsbrandt (Sky Fire).
There are depictions of the Mother of God holding a Mullein as a scepter in her hand.
The blessing 'Our Dear Lady goes over the Land and keeps the blaze of Heaven in her hand' is still known today.
The Tradition of the Herb Bush allows us to capture the forces of the Summer and the Sun and to preserve it for the now approaching dark time.
If you want to put together a Herbal Bush, it is best to take what kind of medicinal and nutritious Herbs grow on your doorstep, what you like and what is of particular importance to yourself.

properties and mode of action
The Mullein grows at least in the whole Eurasian area and the native Cultures have always appreciated and used this Herb.
Hippocrates and Hildegard von Bingen also appreciated the properties of Mullein as a natural medicine.
In Folk Medicine, Mullein is also used as a diuretic, is used in anti-rheumatic teas, calms irritated mucous membranes in hoarseness, and is used externally as a gargle or wound healing agent.
Pastor Kneipp recommended her as a Heart strengthening Herb.
In Homeopathy, preparations from the whole, fresh Plant are used in inflammation of the respiratory or paranasal sinuses, but also in neuralgia.
The Mullein brightens our mind - Hildegard von Bingen knew this plant 'For people who have a sad Heart' as an antidepressant and for well-being, makes us extremely confident and assertive.
She recommended people with a 'sad Heart' to cook the Mullein (young leaves) with meat and fish, then the Heart will become strong and joyful again.
Folk medicine uses an oil of Leaves and Flowers for burns, itching and fresh scars, gastritis and seizures, ear pain and herpes.
Due to the mild effect and the fine aroma, it is also suitable for Children.
Flowers in the pillow should protect against nightmares and negative energies

slightly fever-reducing
causing perspiration
heart tonic

medicinal purposes
accumulation of earwax
eye inflammation (applied fomentation of flowers)
stomach and intestinal complaints
lower leg ulcers (sitz baths)
Hemorrhoids (root), anal itching [Pruritus ani] (flowers and leaves)

The Mullein helps us to find our own dignity and sovereignty and to adopt an upright, truly royal attitude.
It helps to get an overview in times of confusion and strengthens confidence in the inner voice.
It strengthens self-acceptance and helps to put one's own opinion in the right words.
Preparing Mullein as tea is supposed is a marvel against the famous lump in the throat.
The Mullein's message is 'Feeling strengthened and upright'
It corresponds to Sun and Venus but also Mercury

The Mullein grows preferentially on dry, sunny and calcareous locations.
We find her both at the plains and at higher altitudes.
She's a biennial Plant.


In the first Year only the Leaf rosette appears, reminiscent of a mandala, in the second Year, the Plant grows up and starts to bloom.

collecting tips
Mullein is collected from flowering in June, but best in July or August.
It is the center of the Herb Bush that is tied to the Frauendreißiger.
The Frauendreißiger marks the time between the feasts of the Assumption on August 15 and the Name of Mary on September 12.
In the Name of Lady Mary, the Ottoman conquest was stopped 1683 (for the moment).

The Flowers are collected on a very Sunny Day as soon as the dew is completely dry off.
Mullein Flowers are rather thick-skinned and do not dry as easily as other Flowers.
You have to be very careful that the brightness would not start to mold.
The flowering period extends over a very long period of time, sometimes into September, as the single Flowers do not last long, but bloom successively.
By a radical pruning at the end of the flowering period, some Mullein can be stimulated to resume flowering in the following Year, but most of the Plants die after flowering.

Mullein flowers contain mucilage, flavonoids, saponins, iridides (phytochemicals) and essential oil

Mullein as a Flower essence
A Flower essence made of mullein Flowers makes us proud of ourselves.
It helps us to recognize our own beauty and stand rock solidly to us.
It strengthens us and straightens us up and connects us to Heaven and Earth.
It makes our Heart happy and dispels any sadness.
In addition, she gives us a lot of courage to walk our Life.

recipes for medicinal use
for all mentioned complaints - Mullein tea - preparation
Pour 1 teaspoon of the dried Leaves or Flowers in a cup of boiling Water
Let it rest for 10 to 15 minutes.
Drink a cup slowly, swallowed 3 times a Day.

cough tea
Add equal parts ribwort [Plantago lanceolata] Leaves, coltsfoot [Tussilago farfara] Leaves and Flowers, Marshmallow [Althaea officinalis] Leaves and Flowers, and Mullein Flowers to a tea

Mullein tincture
Freshly flowered Flowers are collected in the morning and filled into a screw-top jar, infused with high-proof alcohol and placed in a sunny, warm place for about 4 Weeks.
Fresh Flowers can be added again and again.
After 4 Weeks, the tincture is strained and bottled.
It helps very well with cough and bronchitis.

Mullein Blossoms milk sugar (lactose) trituration
Fresh Mullein Flowers are finely ground together with milk sugar in a mortar.
Approximately in a ratio of 1: 1.
This trituration is spread on a baking paper and dried.
You can possibly also dry it in the oven.
This Mullein sugar can be mixed with children in each cough tea.
It contains bronchial ingredients.

hemorrhoids, lower leg ulcer - sitz bath
Place 2 hands of dried flowers or leaves in a pot with 5 liters of cold Water overnight.
Bring the pot to boil the next Day and add everything to the warm hip bath, which should reach over the kidney area.
Repeat the sitz bath for 20 minutes, daily as needed.

Smudging with Mullein
 2 tsp Alantro root [radix inula Helenium]
1 teaspoon Mullein Flowers
1 tsp Cleaver [Galium verum]
Mortar well and smudge on the sieve.
The mixture smells slightly honey-like and brightens the mood:
Reduction of tension in rooms and the environment
Connection to own power reserves
Brightens the mood
Energetic cleaning
Relaxation after a fight
Protection against negative energies
Rooting and straightening

Mullein was once smudged to repel evil magical powers and demons; today - also in the aromatherapy - because she acts 'setting-up'.
