Horehound

Really Old cough remedy

Horehound

Once used in England to get rid of witch spells.

In 1989 horehound was banned from over the counter cough remedies and rules in-effective.

Horehound has been used to treat cough for thousands of years and us still readily available in all kinds of tinctures, raw, and even candies.

Some people like the flavor.

Other than being used for cough it has also been used for alcohol production, worms, menstrual complaints, asthma, and to lure bees to gardens.
