Andrea from FrugallySustainable.com is my favorite blogger. She finds incredibly innovative ways to use herbs and this is one of her best.
Horehound is a perennial herb from the mint family. It has been found to be incredibly beneficial for respiratory and bronchial illnesses, especially sore throats. Horehound acts as an expectorant which helps it loosen and clear away phlegm, while it also stimulates bronchial secretions to break up congestion.
Horehound is usually prepared as a syrup or tea, but Andrea has created this fantastic horehound lozenge recipe that you can make at home to keep sore throats at bay.
