Verbascum a corruption of ‘barbascum’ from Latin ‘barba’ (a beard) was bestowed by Linnaeus.

Dioscorides used over 2000 years ago for pulmonary (lung) disease and this is still the primary use of Mullein today. As well as the lungs it’s been found to soothe an inflamed digestive tract as well as help relieve migraines and headaches.
