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.

Description: Horehound is a perennial plant that grows only to 20 inches in height. It has toothed leaves and white flowers. It is grown primarily in Europe, North America, and South America. It grows best in open areas and can be harvested in the spring.

Safety: There is no negative safety information available for this herb. Consult your health care provider before beginning use of any herb.
