How Is Mullein Used in Skincare?

 

The most commonly used variant of the mullein plant is the common variety - Verbascum Thapsus. Both the flowers and leaves (either fresh or dry) are used in extracting the useful oils of the plant. The two most common ways of extracting the beneficial properties of the mullein oils for commercial use involve either hot or cold processing.

In natural skincare, apart from mullein oil extracts, fresh or dried mullein flowers and leaves are also commonly found in creams and lotions that can be applied topically.

Like many other natural ingredients, some species of mullein may cause a skin reaction. So be sure to do a patch skin test before introducing mullein into your skincare routine.
