There have been no clinical trials with people using Mullein, but it has had some interest in the scientific community nevertheless and has shown antimicrobial activity against strains of Staphylococcus aureus and Trichophyton mentagrophytes. The antibacterial activity of mullein was observed with Klebsiella pneumonia, Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis and Escherichia coli.
Mullein contains a mucilaginous substance that swells and becomes slippery as it absorbs water, and this may account for at least some of its soothing action, while at the same time its saponin-bearing constituents and volatile oils cause it to have a cleansing action on the lungs. The British Herbal Pharmacopoeia (BHP) describes the actions of Mullein as ‘expectorant, demulcent, mild diuretic, topically vulnerary & emollient’. It says it is indicated for ‘bronchitis, tracheitis, influenzal cold with respiratory catarrh’ and specifically indicated for ‘bronchitis with hard cough and soreness’. (1)
