    Excellent natural product with extensive health benefits

    Dried Mullein Leaves and Flowers is a fantastic versatile herb, I have been using it for a while now, without expectations the results are wonderful!! Extremely soothing tea, enhances good sleep and general wellbeing, a natural product that will give you great pleasure and keep you healthy. In addition to its healthy properties, I discovered that it can be used as a herbal cigarette, I confess I am a smoker, however, Dried Mullein Leaves have helped me to drastically cut down on tobacco nicotine since Lock down. It has been used since ancient times, and it helps to clear your lungs when inhaled. I blend a larger portion of the dried leaves with a much smaller portion of tobacco and there you have it, your perfect healthy and legal cigarette. Based on my personal experience. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

    Hi Guilio, thanks so much for your insightful review - I'm sure many will find this really helpful!

    Amazing Product!!

    10/10 would recommend any of the smoking herbs to others, really has helped clear my chest from the awful gunk created by tobacco.

    I haven't felt this healthy in a long time.

    I bougt Mullein for my years of struggling with bronchitis

    I received my order a week ago and since I started to use of mullein,before I was feeling cold, spitting a lot of mucus every time, since the use of mullein, I am warm, in a week mucus has reduced drastically, healing with herbs takes time as they repair the damage so I can sleep without the noise on my chest, my respiratory tract is light and I don't feel the congestion anymore.


    The best, and delivery was quick also

    Mullein - Excellent Benefits!!

    I found that this herb helped me from the word go! The coughing has stopped, mucus not coming up often, very seldom in fact. Wheezing stopped. It's very soothing when you drink it and would recommend it to anyone if you have a problem with your chest. This herb works quickly. Will keep taking it for maintenance. I feel my sleep is very relaxing, and wake up feeling good. The service from Essentially Natural is excellent! I will always come back to them.
