Mullein is a useful herb for treating a variety of equine respiratory problems including inflammatory airway disease (Heaves), respiratory allergies, dry and productive coughs, and EIPH (bleeding).
How to use mullein: The fuzzy covering of Mullein leaves can be irritating to the mouth and lips. Use only well-powdered mullein directly moistened with a little water, tinctures or infusions (teas).
Mullein tea should be strained through a cloth to strain out any prickly hairs before adding it to your horses’ feed. One cup of strong mullein tea or 2 tablespoons of powdered herbs is an adequate amount for the average 15 hh horse.
