Been reading alot of posts on here and decided to try this recipe w/mullein, hyssop etc. I searched for a long time and finally found a place I could order all ingredients. The mullein is the flower tops, and I also ordered the hyssop and Libela in a leaf form is what they had... so I will try this. I asked about using the leaf form of ingredients and they told me to put them in coffee grinder. Mountain Rose Herbs is where I ordered from and you can call or find it online to order. Their phone # is 1 800 879 3337, located in Oregan. I will be awaiting my herbs and will keep you posted on my results. Thank you to Earth Clinic and everyone who posts for your help."
08/13/2010: Need Of Help from Crystal Lake, Il: "Hello- I have a question regarding the Mullein pods. - Can you harvest the pods anytime of year?
O Right now, they would have the yellow flowers on them and no seeds yet. - If you harvest them now can you use them?
- If you harvest them in the fall when there are seeds in the pods, can you still use them?
O Someone said that they read that the seeds were poisonous, is that true?
- If a seed gets into the tea, will it ruin the whole batch of tea?
- If you can pick the mullein tops anytime, how do you store the tea?
- How long will the tea stay good? I would assume it will take some time to consume a gallon if you're only averaging 3 Tbsp. A day
- Can you freeze the herbs to use again (since you said they were good for 2-3 batches of tea)?
- Can you freeze the tea?
Thanks a bunch! I am looking forward to making this! Hopefully it will cure, or at least help!"

You can use magnesium oil on your skin and it will be absorbed very fast vs. Taking orally. This may be why nebulizing worked for this person. The water cure is 1/2 your weight in ounces of water and a little sea salt. You can google it to get more details. It helped me with my asthma symptoms. They disappeared in two days. In addition to salt and water I use iodine and magnesium oil which Dr. Batman recommends in his books."

I have never purchase these particular items from them, but my experience buying other products has been a good one. Whole Foods Market also has mullein (in the loose tea and herbs section, near the vitamins), I am not sure if they carry the seeds though. I hope this helps.
06/22/2009: Joyce from Joelton, Tn. replies: "Hello Jamie,
I think the mullein plant grows quite rampantly in most of the United States, so why don't you either get you a good book on identifying herbal plants or go on line to see if you can't find a picture of it.
You can usually spot it at roadsides as you drive along the rural areas roads. Just learn to identify them by the roadside, but take a short hike in the woodland areas to pick those seed pods which should be ready to pick in the next couple of months. The reason to not gather them from the roadside, is you don't want all the pollution they absorb from the automobile exhausts fumes. Seed pods mean exactly what it says. It is the pods containing the seeds and these will be found on the mullein plant on the tall stalk from the central part of the plant that bloomed and forms the seeds after the blooms."
01/18/2010: Jack from Toledo, Ohio replies: "HELLO JAMI FROM ADRAIN MICH; The "seeds" are not the part of the plant used "ITS THE ENTIRE "SEED POD" OR "TOPS OF THE GREAT MULLEIN PLANT which in the latter fall and winter months looks like a long black stick along highways or RR tracks,usually the leave's at the bottom will be dried and brown and at times you'll see some mint green leaves at the bottom of the plant which feels fuzzy like velvet,the seeds them selves can be transplanted most anywhere but they like well drained areas, and they only blossom in the 2nd season.They then grow anywhere from 3-6 feet or even more in some states,. and the seeds are about this size Jami ( . )
Just look up "pictures of Great Mullein plants" I break off the "SEED PODS" or just under the area where the flowers started growing and use the "ENTIRE POD OR TOP OF THE PLANT WHERE THE FLOWERS "HAD BEEN"
When the terriable outbreak of Tuburculossis(sp?) in Ireland around 1900, Great Mullein was the primary way they used to clear the lungs of "TB" made into a tea,"But I've added more to it and it "WORKS EXCEEDINGLY WELL, JUST ASK SHARON S FROM CONN.

03/11/2009: Joyce from Joelton, Tn replies: "Hello Paul,
I haven't made the remedy for emphysema, but I can tell you that I have never seen more than one seed pod on a mullein plant. Therefore, seed pods from 6 great mullein plants would be just what it says - 6 seed pods (l from each of 6 different plants)."

however shanna may be just as well off to use the same method i gave you for "sinus headaches" useing "cayenne powdered red pepper and water since "asbestos" will go into all parts of the body,and there is no way of removing it from the body once it has been exposed, o opening his airways with the cayenne or a lung transplant is all i know of to help him..

[YEA] 10/23/2010: Dr. Mom from Reinholds, Pa replies: "Mullein like Jack says is truly invaluable. I was selling mullein at a small stand when an elderly man came up to me and told me to keep it up. "That is great stuff. I had serious emphysema and was on oxygen all the time. I got to the place where I could hardly leave the house. Then someone told me that I should drink 3- 4 cups of mullein leaf tea daily. I thought it was too good to be true, that after all my years of doctoring and herbs one little leaf tea could help me, but I was desperate. I did it, faithfully and very soon I was off my oxygen able to get around again. It was a God-sent blessing to me. "
This was just the leaf that he used, and not the tops. But each part of the mullein is helpful. So if you cannot find the tops, try a quart of the leaf tea daily. I would add peppermint to make it taste nicer. Use 1/4 cup of mullein leaf and 2 bags of peppermint to a quart of boiling water. Turn off the heat and let it steep, covered for 15- 20 minutes. Strain and sweeten and add ice or drink hot. I would also take cayenne capsules 2 with each meal to increase the circulation and help the mullein to work better."
