Will this vaping recipe for mullein work?

I have moderate asthma. I have used mullin tea and it helps but Id like a faster home made medicine. I have read that you can smoke mullin but I'd rather not smoke.
I have read that some people get relief from vaping flavored vegetable glycerine.  I looked for a recipe to make mullin vape juice but couldn't find one. I looked for one using mint leaves thinking they are both leaves but I only found one question about it and the answer was that mint has something in it that it isn't suitable.
I looked at a website that gave instructions for using marijuana that i think could work with mullin instead but their concern was to pull oils out of the leaves and since mullin is used for teas I know that the properties I want are water soluble so I don't know if the technique would work.
The recipe was to dry the leaves, then grind into a powder and add the powder to vegetable glycerine and gently heat it in a crockpot on the warm setting for 6 hours. Then strain the leaves out while its warm.

Would this work for mullin? I don't want to waste my mullin if it won't work.
I talked to someone at a store that sells vaping pipes and although he couldn't recommend it, he said he heard of people vaping cbd  oil for asthma and said I could find information and recipes online.

I guess I'm just not using the right keywords in my searches.
Does anyone here know or can tell me how to find this information online?

I found this video, which seems to suggest that it's quite possible.

Thanks for posting that.

I guess I couldn't find anything because I misspelled mullein, lol.
I thought you had to use a glycerine infused with mullein. That looks like it needs a vaporizer that uses dry herbs.I didn't know there were different kinds other than the e-cigarettes that used cartridges with nicotine and ones that you bought juice or made a blend of flavored glycerines.
I went to the Davinci website and it had listings for temperatures but mullein wasn't on the list.
The vaporizer wasn't cheap but it is far less than my advair or rescue inhalers.

I would still like to find more discussions on vapeing mullein and/or essential oils before trying this.
Does anyone here have any experience with it?

I wouldn't be so worried about smoking a small amount of organically grown mullein, it may actually provide better relief than vaporizing.  For a cheap and effective vaporizer you could try an Ubie
