Mullein, with very hairy leaves that are so soft to the touch, has been known for a very long time for its beneficial effects on the respiratory system, against coughs and bronchitis. We use the flowers, prepared as an infusion, or the leaves, which we smoke. It can be grown simply for its beautiful yellow flowers.
