    Safest product I've found.

    Published by Unknown on 5th Feb 2015

    I have been using the tea for the past eight years... and I breathe freely for the first time in my 70 year life. Several times during that time I felt my chest tightening and by taking a little extra was able to avoid pneumonia or sever bronchitis. I have had no symptoms of asthma since I began using it. I have also used poultices to relieve the pain of a pinched sciatic nerve, relieved the swelling immediately and the pain diminished in less than 10 days.

    It is the safest herb out there.

    I can breathe!

    Published by Grandma Paula on 23rd Nov 2013

    I have had allergies my whole life... not sneezy, drippy allergies, but stuffy, can't breathe allergies. I mix a little mullein tea with my regular tea and sip at it all day and breathe freely for the first time in my life, without any "prescription drugs"!
    If I have a cold and my chest starts to tighten (wannabe pneumonia), I just drink 3 or 4 oz of the mullein tea, straight. It immediately loosens the congestion. I can't find any warnings or side effects (except to not forget to filter out the fuzzy hairs out), It is amazing and safe for children. The taste is so mild, it blends with anything.

    I buy mine from the wonderful people, here at Savvy, but it does grow everywhere on our property.

    My formula: I brew 1/4 to 1/3 cup of crushed, dried mullein into 1/2 gal of tea (fresh, by the cup is better if you have time). I consume 6 to 10 oz of the brew a day.
