• Traditionally used to help support asthma, menstrual complaints, poor circulation, high blood pressure, coughs and more.


• Fights asthma, menstrual complaints, poor circulation, high blood pressure, coughs and more.
White horehound is used mainly for two complaints: digestive complaints (lack of appetite, indigestion, dyspepsia, biliary complaints and flatulence) and dry coughs (acute or chronic coughing). Traditionally, it is an approach in cases of menstrual disorders and inflammations of mucous membranes and skin.

White Horehound
Marrubium vulgare L.

Family: Lamiaceae.

Other Names: Marrube blanc (French); Gemeiner Andorn (German); marrobio (Italian); marrubio (Spanish).

Description: A perennial herb of less than 0.5 m high, with angular stems, densely hairy, conspicuously veined leaves (often greyish green) and rounded clusters of small, white, two-lipped flowers at each node.

Origin: Southern Europe and Asia. The herb is thought to have originated in the Mediterranean region but is now widely dispersed in most continents of the world, where it has become a common roadside weed.

Parts Used: The fresh or dried aboveground parts (Marrubii herba) are used.

Therapeutic Category: Choleretic and expectorant.

Preparation and Dosage: A daily dose of 4.5 g of dried herb (or equivalent dose) is recommended. It is usually taken as a tea, but the product is also included in ready-made expectorants and digestive health products.

Active Ingredients: The main compound of interest is marrubiin (up to 1%), a diterpene lactone of the labdane type. It is thought that a precursor, premarrubiin, is actually present in the plant and that it is converted to marrubiin and further to marrubiinic acid. Other diterpenoids include marrubenol, peregrinol and vulgarol. Flavonoids (glycosides of apigenin, luteolin and quercetin), tannins and phenolic acids, betonicine, choline and small amounts of essential oil (with camphene, limonene, sabinene and other mono- and sesquiterpenoids) are present.

Health Effects: Choleretic effects are ascribed to marrubiin or marrubiinic acid (it stimulates bile secretion). Marrubiin is considered to be the main expectorant principle as it is thought to stimulate secretion of the bronchial mucosa, but the volatile oil in the plant will also contribute to the spasmolytic, expectorant and vasodilatory activities.

Status: Traditional health; Pharm.; Comm. E-H.



Horehound - also known as houndbane - is native to the Mediterranean region and is one of the bitter herbs consumed at Jewish Passover feasts. It's a bitter member of the mint family, with white, downy leaves. Commission E approved use of the above-ground parts of the plant, both fresh and dried.

Potential Health Benefits

Horehound is approved to help support loss of appetite, bloating, and flatulence. Traditionally, horehound can also be used as an expectorant and a product for bronchial coughs. In 1989, the United States banned horehound from cough suppresants, saying it was ineffective. Commission E doesn't comment on horehound in cough supportives .

Scientific Evidence

Horehound contains bitter principles and tannins. It also contains marrubinic acid, which stimulates the liver to increase production of bile used by the body to digest fats. in a 1959 study, published in Planta Medica, marrubinic acid stimulated the production of bile, which speeds digestion, in rats. In a 1996 study, a horehound alcoholic extract reduced smooth-muscle spasms of the intestinal tract, lending credence to horehound's reputation as a digestive aid.

How to Use the Herb

Dried herb and freshly expressed juice are endorsed for internal use. The daily dosages are 4.5 grams of the herb and 2-6 tablespoons of juice. The PDR Family Guide to Natural Medicines & Healing Therapies additionally recommends 1/2 tablespoonful of liquid extract 3 times per day, or up to 3 cups of tea per day.

Ancient Greeks reportedly relied on horehound (Marrabium vulgare) to help support mad-dog bite, which explains the "hound" in this plant's name. But over time, it has been this herb's role as a bodily aid for respiratory maintenance that has made it popular. Soothing teas, lozenges, and syrups concocted from its wooly leaves stimulate the body's capacity to keep airways clear and the respiratory tract functioning normally.

Many people like the somewhat bitter, apple-like flavor of horehound, a member of the mint family. Horehound is native to Europe but now grows in many parts of the world including North America.

White Horehound when fresh has a strong, slightly musky odor and a warm, bitter, astringent, slightly nauseous taste. It contains a volatile oil, gallic acid and a bitter principle which is soluble in water and in alcohol. The juice is rich in tannin.

Horehound is gathered for medical purposes at the time of flowering and is dried in the shade. It has been regarded as a strong depurative. The juice can be used to help support very different illnesses, but particularly for chest complaints. The infusion can be used to help support irritation in the bronchia, chronic catarrh, mercurial salivation, chlorosis and anemia.

Although its health value may have been exaggerated, we seem now to have gone to the other extreme by more or less banishing it from medical use.

Specialists of this plant regard it as a means of stimulating the digestive organs. Culpeper tells us: "It is an herb of Mercury. It helps to expectorate tough phlegm from the chest. It is given to women to bring down their courses, to expel the afterbirth...as also to persons who have taken poison."

Horehound is a perennial plant with small white flowers found growing in the wild throughout Europe and Asia. The genus name Marrubium is thought to be derived from "marrob," the Hebrew word for "bitter juice." It is believed that horehound was one of the original bitter herbs of the Jewish Passover tradition. The common name, horehound, is from the old English "har hune," meaning "downy plant." The above ground portion of this plant is harvested for its active ingredients.

Horehound was reportedly first used by the physician Galen in ancient Rome, who recommended it as respiratory support. Like Galen, Nicholas Culpepper, the 17th-century English chemist, commented that it was helpful for maintaining normal lung functioning. Similarly, Eclectic physicians of the 19th century remarked on its value not only for the respiratory system, but also for the female reproductive system. Horehound was used by Navaho Indians for woman through childbirth.

The primary chemical constituents of Horehound include essential oil (pinene, limonene, camphene), diterpene liquids (marrubinol, marruciol, silareol), sterols, saponins, bitter lactone, alkaloids (betonicine, stachydine), tannin, mucilage, bitter principle (marrubin), and vitamin C. It has been used by some herbalists as a circulatory tonic and it also acts on the hormonal system and will aid the body in maintaining normal menstruation. Horehound is valuable in keeping breathing passages clear, and its soothing effects help to keep muscles relaxed. The bitter action of horehound stimulates the biliary functions of the body and supports the gall-bladder, thereby promoting normal, healthy digestion.

Marrubium vulgare
(White Horehound)

Medicinal Usage

Horehound has long been cultivated to help support various ailments, especially coughs, catarrh, asthma and respiratory complaints. The plant was especially valued by the Greeks and the Romans, and the ancient Egyptians. Pliny said that "its seeds and leaves pounded together are good for the bites of serpents, pains in the chest and side, and chronic cough," adding that, pounded with honey, it was "remarkably good for maladies of the male genitals." The herb was also used to help support heart, liver and digestive problems, for malaria and, according to Culpeper, to act as a disinfectant and rejuvenate dog-bites. Horehound candy was sold as cough sweets.

Culinary Usage

The leaves of horehound were used to make liqueurs, ales and wine.

Miscellaneous

The ancient Egyptians dedicated horehound to Horus, the god of the sun and sky. A native to Britain, the herb was known to the Anglo-Saxons and listed by Aelfric. Said to be one of the bitter Passover herbs, its botanical name is derived from the Hebrew for 'bitter juice'. The name is thought to come from the Old English for 'a downy plant'. Its leaves were used to clean milk pails and, soaked in fresh milk, to kill flies.



Medicinal Usage

Medicinally this ill-tasting herb is a stimulant, bitter stomachic, resolvent, deobstruent, expectorant and tonic. Its primary use is to break up phlegm, support coughs, soothe sore throats, and support coughs and other upper respiratory ailments. Horehound has also been useful in jaundice, a healthy liver, amenorrhea, and leukemia. An ointment made from freshly bruised leaves can be useful for rejuvenating cuts. Large doses have a laxative effect.

Marrubiin, a bitter principle, is the main active constituent of horehound. It has been shown to possess expectorant qualities and to strongly increase the flow of liver bile. The leaves also contain tannin, mucilage, a resin, and minute amounts of aklaloids and an essential oil. The volatile oil is a vasodilator and expectorant.

A tea can be made by adding one ounce of the herb to a quart of water. Sweeten with honey before drinking.

General Herb Information

Horehound is a hardy perennial herb native to the Mediterranean and northern Europe, and naturalized throughout the United States. It is a bitter aromatic herb standing about one foot tall with a bushy spreading habit.

The whole plant is covered with a soft, woolly felt, giving the plant a whitish-gray appearance. The leaves are round or oval-shaped and arranged opposite one another on square stems. They are about an inch long, and have slight teeth and short petioles. The tiny white flowers occur in tight whorls around the leaf axils. The calyx has ten sharp pointed recurved teeth; when dried, they cling to clothing like burdock pods. It flowers from June to September.

Horehound is easy to grow from seed sown in shallow drills in fall or early spring. Resulting seedlings should be spaced eight to fifteen inches apart. Horehound may also be propagated from stem cuttings or root division. Plants grown from seed may take two years to bloom.

Horehound is one of those herbs that grows in places other plants shun. A poor, dry, sandy soil with a wide pH range (4.5 to 8) and full sun are all horehound needs. It's a good herb to plant around a border which doesn't need much attention. An acre of horehound has been reported to produce three-fourths to one ton of dried herb.

The leaves and flowering tops are harvested in peak-bloom. Horehound is easy to dry but difficult to process by hand because of its sticky calyces.

Horehound is also known by the names Hoarhound and Marrubium. Horehound is a perennial plant with small white flowers found growing in the wild throughout Europe and Asia. The genus name Marrubium is thought to be derived from "marrob," the Hebrew word for "bitter juice." It is believed that Horehound was one of the original bitter herbs of the Jewish Passover tradition. The common name, Horehound, is from the old English "har hune," meaning "downy plant." The part of this plant used for health benefits is the above ground portion.

Horehound was reportedly first used by the physician Galen in ancient Rome, who recommended it as a therapy for coughs and other respiratory ailments. Like Galen, Nicholas Culpepper, the 17th-century English chemist, commented that it was helpful for a cough, and was also useful in helping remove stubborn phlegm from the lung. Similarly, Eclectic physicians of the 19th century remarked on its value as a useful plant not only for coughs and asthma, but also in menstrual complaints. Horehound was used by Navaho Indians to help a woman through childbirth. Horehound is an anti-spasmodic and a stimulant.

The primary chemical constituents of Horehound include essential oil (pinene, limonene, camphene), diterpene liquids (marrubinol, marruciol, silareol), sterols, saponins, bitter lactone, alkaloids (betonicine, stachydine), tannin, mucilage, bitter principle (marrubin), and vitamin C. It has a relaxing effect on heart tissue and can be used by some herbalists as a circulatory tonic to help support healthy blood pressure levels. It also acts on the hormonal system and will normalize heavy or scanty menstruation. Horehound is valuable in supporting coughs and colds. It combines the action of relaxing the smooth muscles of the bronchus while promoting mucus production, and thus expectoration. This herb has been used in supporting whooping cough. The bitter action stimulates the flow and secretion of bile from the gall-bladder, thereby aiding digestion. Horehound can also be used externally to promote the rejuvenating of wounds, irritated skin, shingles and dog bites. The essential oils in Horehound help dilate the arteries and support lung congestion. The extreme bitterness helps as a disinfectant. Horehound increases circulation to the lungs, expels mucus, and cools infection.

In the first line of defense

My family is currently suffering from a virus that causes coughing, sore throat, fever and fatigue. I have been drinking horehound tea instead of medicating with cough syrup and it seems to effectively quell the cough. I have bypassed the sore throat and fever and am fairing better than the rest. My 11 year old boy has used it instead of cough syrup. It seems to help his cough, though he still has fever and sore throat. The tea is bitter. Though I had never drank tea with milk, this tea demands milk and sugar. It still is bitter, but I am not only getting used to it, I am beginning to like it. It seemed expensive, but I can get 5 cups of tea out of one bag. I recommend this tea for dealing with respiratory problems caused by colds and flu.

Peppermint is also known by the names Mint, Balm Mint, Curled Mint, Lamb Mint, and Brandy Mint. The plant is found throughout Europe, in moist areas, along stream banks and in waste lands. Mint is one of the most ancient of all health herbs. Ancient Athenians would rub the leaves of mint on their arms to improve their endurance. The Greeks and Romans crowned themselves with Peppermint at their feasts, and adorned their tables with its sprays. They also flavored both their sauces and their wines with its essence. Two species of mint were used for health benefits by the ancient Greek physicians, but some writers doubt whether either was the modern Peppermint, though there is evidence that Mentha piperita was cultivated by the Egyptians. It is mentioned in the Icelandic Pharmacopoeias of the thirteenth century, but only came into general use in the medicine of Western Europe about the middle of the eighteenth century. Today, the United States is the most important producers of Peppermint and Peppermint oil. The primary chemical constituents of Peppermint include essential oils (menthol, menthone, methyl acetate, limonene, pulegone), tannins, flavonoids, choline, and potassium. Peppermint leaves contain about 0.5-4% volatile oil that is composed of 50-78% free menthol and 5-20% menthol combined with other constituents.

Peppermint is an excellent carminative, having a relaxing effect on the muscles of the digestive system, combats flatulence, and stimulates bile and digestive juice flow. It can be used to help support intestinal colic, flatulent dyspepsia and associated complaints. The volatile oil in Peppermint acts as a mild anesthetic to the stomach wall, which allays feelings of nausea and the desire to vomit. This herb has long been known to help support nausea and vomiting of pregnancy, and travel sickness. Peppermint can also be used in supporting complaints of the bowels. It is a traditional support for fevers, colds and digestion. As an inhalant, this herb is used as temporary support for nasal catarrh. Where headaches are associated with digestion, Peppermint may help. As a nervine, it supports anxiety and tension. In painful menstrual periods, it supports the pain and eases associated tension. Externally, it can be used to help support itching, inflammations, and a variety of respiratory complaints. Peppermint oil is also a great expectorant.

Most people are acquainted with this elegant vegetable and its green stalks and tender sweet tips. However, it is the underground roots and rhizomes that are dried and used for health benefits. Research supports the use of asparagus root primarily for complaints of the urinary tract and kidneys, largely on the basis of animal studies that indicate it functions as a mild diuretic. This means it draws fluid out of the body by increasing urination. Because of this action, asparagus root may be beneficial in several complaints associated with the kidneys and urinary tract.

Turmeric Root is also known by the name Curcuma. The plant is native to Southern Asia. The genus name Curcuma is from an Arabic word "kurkum," meaning "saffron," in reference to the color of Turmeric. The actual word Turmeric is from the Medieval Latin "terra merita," meaning "deserving earth."

In India, women with lovely, velvety skin often attribute it to consuming Turmeric. The parts of this plant used for health benefits are the rhizome and the root. Turmeric is a close relative to Ginger Root, and can be used as a dye and a cooking spice in India and other Asian countries. It has been used traditionally for the potential to help support symptoms of jaundice and other liver ailments, skin irritations, bloating, various skin problems, sprains, strains, bruises, inflammation of the joints, cold and coughs and colds, preserving food, and promoting digestion.

Native peoples of the Pacific sprinkled the dust on their shoulders during ceremonial dances, and used it for numerous medical problems ranging from constipation to skin problems. The inhalation of smoke from burning Turmeric is said to help support "hysterical fits." The potential properties of this herb are cholagogue, hepatic, stomachic, carminative, anti-inflammatory, and disinfectant. The primary chemical constituents of Turmeric Root include curcumin (yellow pigment) essential oil (artumerone, zingberene, borneol), valepotriates, alkaloids, and protein.

Modern interest in Turmeric began in 1971 when Indian researchers found evidence suggesting that the herb may possess anti-inflammatory properties. Curcumin was later found to possess potential antioxidant properties. Evidence also suggests that Turmeric is an herb that stimulates the gallbladder. Turmeric helps to stabilize the body's microflora, thus inhibiting yeast overgrowth. It also sensitizes the body's cortisol receptor sites, and its anti-inflammatory properties are considered at least equal to those of cortisones. Turmeric can be used to help support blood platelet aggregation that can lead to dangerous blood clots. Turmeric Root also helps to protect the liver, and is excellent for those exposed to toxic chemicals. Turmeric is also anti-mutagenic, and helps protect the body from mutagens such as smoke and other pollutants.

Studies on Turmeric have verified that the herb possesses cholagogue-type substances which increase the secretions of bile. It has also been suggested that Turmeric lowers blood cholesterol and helps with weight loss. Recent investigations suggest that curcuminoids may be active in the support for symptoms related to compromised immunity levels, this is presumably connected with the cytotoxicity of these substances, which has been demonstrated on cell cultures. Past topical applications of this herb may include its use as a poultice for athlete's foot, bruises, psoriasis, swellings, and wounds.

The genus name Marrubium is thought to be derived from "marrob," the Hebrew word for "bitter juice."
