Horehound

Size

Botanical Name: Marrubium vulgare

This herb is a perennial that flowers, and the taste is quite bitter. Known for its supportive properties, horehound is often enjoyed in botanical candies and syrup for respiratory wellness. Folklore suggests the herb was used to reject spells from witches.

We find this fuzzy-leafed herb quite easy to grow on the farm.

The Swiss cough drop company Ricola incorporates horehound into a proprietary blend of their Original Herb drops! They too know that this herb is beneficial for soothing the throat.
