Horehound General Information
In ancient Greece, Horehound was used treat mad-dog bite, which could explain the “hound’ in its name, but throughout time it has become popular as a cough expectorant. The wooly leaves and white flowering tops of Horehound were used in teas and syrups to stimulate mucous output. Ancient Romans used this herb to treat whooping cough, tuberculosis, asthma, jaundice, menstrual cramps, and constipation. The Egyptians used for the same ailments but also used it to repel flies. They made a balm from the leaves mixed with honey to cleanse infected wounds and ulcers. It has antiseptic and expectorant properties, stimulates bile flow, and stabilizes heart rhythm. Ballota Nigra or Black Horehound (Black Stinking Horehound) is another variety of Horehound and it has antispasmodic and anti-emetic properties and also helps stimulate bile flow.
