Known elsewhere as candlewick plant, hag taper, and lady`s candle, mullein is native to both Europe and Asia. Used for tinder and lamp wicks, folklore held that witches used lamps that were lit with such wicks for their incantations. Among some folk, this gave rise to the name of Hag`s taper. Mullein was also used as funerary rites, with stalks being dipped in suet and burned at funerals. Wise tales also held that mullein was quite useful in treating diseases of cattle. In both Europe and Asia it was said that mullein could drive away evil spirits, and in India it was considered a safeguard against magic as well. There is even mention of mullein performing this task in ancient times, with the Iliad giving mention of Ulysses using mullein to ward off the sorcery of Circe. Herbalists have long made note its use in treating pectoral complaints. It is also supposed to be of great use in treating the bleeding of lungs and bowls. As an expectorant, it has also seen use in treating sore throats, coughs, and lung disease. Some herbalists also use it in a poultice which is used to treat hemorrhoid complaints. Possessing slight sedative properties, Mullein has also been found as an active ingredient in many alternative smoking blends, and it has also been used to treat migraines and long lasting headaches.
