Horehound (Marrubium vulgare) is native to the Mediterranean region although it can now be found worldwide. Horehound has been used for centuries. It is noted for its bitter and hot taste. The dried flowering branches, the fresh aerial parts of the flowering plant, and sometimes the whole of the horehound plant can be used medicinally. Horehound stimulates digestive juices and production of bile by the liver. It also has an expectorant action, helping to loosen phlegm. Horehound tea is still regarded as an effective cure for colds in certain countries, and is commonly used in liqueurs and aperitifs.
