Mullein tea for cough


For one cup of mullein tea:

– 1/3 to 2/5 teaspoon (1.5 to 2 grams) of dried mullein flowers

– Around 6.76 fl. oz. (200 mL) of water

* You can buy dried mullein flowers at the pharmacy or you can collect the mullein flowers yourself from where they grow naturally and dry them.


– Heat water to boiling and then add this water to the mullein.

– Infuse for about ten minutes (in order to obtain an effective dose of the active ingredients)


– Drink mullein tea once or twice a day in particular when suffering from a chesty cough. Ask your pharmacist or doctor for a more personalized dose.

You can add to the dried mullein flowers 2 tablespoons of dried peppermint leaf.
