Horehound is a perennial herb and a member of the mint family. It is indigenous to Europe, but it may also be found growing in North and South America. The name “horehound” is apparently derived from the name of the Egyptian hawk-headed god of light, Horus, as an alternative name for the plant is “seed of Horus.” Horehound leaves contain marrubiinic acid, tannins, resins, and flavinoids.
Horehound is a perennial herb with a musky scent and fuzzy, green leaves. Horehound is related to mint, and like mint, it is a vigorous plant that readily self-seeds and can become invasive. While horehound is often grown in the home garden, the plant can also be found growing wild in meadows and along railroad tracks. Horehound is valued for its menthol-like flavor, and has been used to make herbal teas, lozenges and syrups for centuries, most often for coughs and cold, sore throats, sinus headaches and indigestion.
Tea brewed with horehound leaves can be used to treat a wide variety of minor ailments. It is particularly effective in alleviating the symptoms of upper respiratory disorders, such as cough or asthma. Horehound tea is also used medicinally to relieve night-time acid reflux, abdominal pain and indigestion, lessen the pain of headaches caused by sinus infections, and reduce symptoms related to the common cold. The herb also soothes the pain and itching caused by a sore throat.
