Horehound is a perennial member of the mint family that is distributed throughout Europe, North Africa and the central and western regions of Asia. The herb has a long history of use as flavoring in teas, tonics and other beverages, most notably horehound ale.
Horehound has also been used for centuries to produce teas, syrups and candies, or lozenges, to ease symptoms of respiratory conditions and gastrointestinal complaints. In addition to containing a high degree of mucilage, the herb contains marrubiin, an analgesic compound that is the subject of considerable study at present. In Europe, the German Commission E has approved of its use to address dyspepsia, or loss of appetite.
Cosmetic Preparations - Use for poultices or infuse in oil or alcohol for topical use.
Culinary Preparations - Use in winter time tea blends and to make syrups and throat lozenges. The dried herb may also be used as seasoning.
