History: Horehound has been used at least since the early Egyptians brewed it into a cough remedy and referred to it as the "Seed of Horus." It was also considered an antidote for poison, being particularly effective against the bites of made dogs and serpents. Horehound was probably one of the bitter Passoverherbs -- the word marubium is thought to be derived from the Hebrew marrob, for "bitter juice." Har hune (which later became horehound) is old English for "downy plant." The Greek physician Dioscorides recommended a decoction of the herb for tuberculosis, asthma, and coughs. In 1597, the herbalist John Gerard praised horehound as "a most singular remedy against the cough and wheezing."
