Mullein Torch History and Uses

Historical Significance and Culture:

Mullein also known as Verbascum thapsus is a biennial plant that has hairy leaves forming a rosette. In its second year it forms a tall flowering stalk that produces beautiful yellow flowers. Mullein is medicinally used for the respiratory tract, working as an expectorant. Mullein's flowers are used for earaches, and skin conditions. Usually the plants are found along roadsides, pastures and meadows.

Historically the dried mullein stalks were dipped in tallow or suet to make candles for long lasting light sources. The dried leaves were also used as a lamp wick by the Greeks. The Romans carried mullein torches in funeral processions. In the Odyssey, the God's gave Ulysses mullein to overcome Circe's temptations.
