Mullein Flower Cough Syrup

I recently made a wonderful cough syrup using only mullein flowers and turbinado sugar. I simply layered in a small jar the blossoms and the sugar. I put the jar in a sunny window for a few weeks. The result is a beautiful, amber colored, throat-coating elixir that will come in very handy this Winter. Mullein is a wonderful herb for treating coughs and lung issues. I also tincture the fuzzy leaves in vodka for a superb extract that effectively fights colds and flu.
