A member of the mint family, Marrubium vulgare is a flowering perennial with wrinkly green and white leaves that are covered in white, woolly hairs and arranged in opposites. Horehound is a bushy perennial with branching square stems growing to approximately twelve inches in height. Native to Asia and Europe, horehound grows in a wide range of climates and is now naturalized to North America. This lightly aromatic herb is quite hardy and can be easily cultivated.
Horehound has a long history of use for its wellness-supporting properties in traditional European folk herbalism. The herb is considered energetically bitter and cooling and was historically employed for its affinity for the respiratory and digestive system. Horehound’s use goes back centuries where Egyptian priests supposedly referred to it as the "Seed of Horus", which some speculate its modern name came from.
Our organic horehound extract is made in small batches at our extract facility in Eugene, Oregon by our expert team for quality and efficacy. Horehound extract blends well with mullein extract, licorice extract, and hyssop extract. Bitter in flavor, it can also be dispensed on the tongue or in water or juice.
