Magical Uses: Mullein is worn to keep wild animals from you while hiking in untamed areas. It also instills courage in the bearer, and a few leaves placed in the shoe keeps one from catching a cold. Mullein is also carried to obtain love from the opposite sex. Stuffed into a small pillow or placed beneath your pillow, mullein guards against nightmares. In India, mullein is regarded as the most potent safeguard against evil spirits and magic, and is hung over doors, in windows, and carried in sachets. It is also used to banish demons and negativity. In the Ozarks, men performed a simple love divination. The man went to a clearing where a mullein grew and bent it down so that it pointed toward his love's house. If she loved him the mullein would grow upright again; if she loved another it would die. Graveyard dust—an infrequent ingredient in spells—can be substituted with powdered mullein leaves. At one time Witches and magicians used oil lamps to illuminate their spells and rites, and the downy leaves and stems of the mullein often provided the wicks.
Smoking: Mullein has a long history of use as a lung tonic. It can actually help you stop coughing when you’re sick. The smoke is extremely light and mild, almost like smoking air, and virtually flavorless.
