It burns slowly and steadily, with thick plumes of white smoke that’s soothing to the throat. Mullein can also be taken as a tea that promotes healthy digestion and reduces stomach discomfort.
An herbal base is usually comprised of a light, cheap and fluffy herb that is easier on the throat.
The dried root of marshmallow has been used traditionally to treat cough and sore throat. It produces a sweet, soothing smoke that can be added to blends.
