s a popular folk remedy for hundreds of years, horehound was planted throughout Europe and brought with settlers to North America, where it quickly became naturalized. It is a typical herb of cottage gardens, where it is harvested for use in tea and candy.
A tea blend we like consists of 1/3 hyssop herb, 1/3 horehound herb and 1/3 peppermint leaf brewed into a tea and sweetened generously with honey. The three herbs work together synergistically and the honey and peppermint help balance the bitterness of the horehound and hyssop. While most often used as a tea, horehound is a flavoring in syrups, bitters, candies, cough drops, lozenges and liqueurs.
To make a tea, pour 1 cup boiling water over 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of horehound herb, cover and let steep for 5 minutes. If the tea is too bitter, honey can be added to sweeten.
