Horehound Tincture

Horehound has been around for thousands of years, and is a popular cough and cold remedy used by the ancient Egyptians as well as modern health providers. As an expectorant, it will promote mucus and ease the pain of a dry, non-productive or hacking cough, croup, asthma, bronchitis, sinusitis and earaches. The herb has a positive effect for glandular problems and infectious diseases. The Navajo used this herb as a gynecological aid before and after childbirth. The extract of Horehound has been shown to significantly lower blood glucose in the treatment of diabetes mellitus or hypoglycemia. Topically it is a great herbal remedy to treat herpes simplex, eczema, skin eruptions and shingles. 

This is a great herbal remedy for the cold season. Horehound is a well known lung and throat remedy, and is found to be useful as a natural cough suppressant, and has been used for colds and other respiratory ailments. This is a great remedy for kids when coughs and colds make it hard to sleep and traditional medications make the child drowsy during the day. 

Horehound decreases the thickness of phlegm and promotes the secretion of fluids into the bronchial passageways. It impacts the gathered congestion in the throat lining, lungs and sinuses and relieve the headache caused by sinus infection. In fact, as a pain reliever, the marrubium compound in Horehound stimulates the central nervous system and was found in laboratory tests to be more potent than some well-known pain relief medications. 

A bitter tonic, Horehound promotes good digestion and enhances the appetite. It triggers the flow of gastric juices and promotes the production of bile in the gall bladder. These actions can help to promote the working of the stomach and the digestive system as a whole. The stimulation of the central nervous system by marrubium also improves digestion and aids in the absorption of nutrients which eases flatulence, indigestion and bloating. Horehound is considered a mild laxative and is also said to expel worms.
