HOREHOUND, HOARHOUND

Horehound, Marrubium vulgare, is a member or the mint family native to Eurasia.

A bitter, aromatic herb that has been used as a cough remedy for thousands of years, horehound is said to take its name from Horus (son of Osiris and Isis) the Egyptian god of the sun. 

Juice extracted from the leaves is used to flavor liqueurs, candy, cough drops and syrups, and horehound honey used to be as popular as horehound candy.
