Horehound Tea – Horehound Candy – Marrubium Vulgare

Marrubium vulgare is one of the first class of medicinal plants for the treatment of lung diseases, conditions after the flu, the initial stages of tuberculosis and feverish conditions. Is is successfully used in the treatment of nervous diseases, respiratory catarrh, coughs, catarrh of the stomach, jaundice and women’s diseases.

Also it has been used to treat infertility in women (we already spoke about some natural remedies – maca root powderchasteberry, etc.). It was always used to normalize menstruation (polymennorhea treatment) and the cycle and balancing hormones. From this miraculous herb a horehound tea is prepared, which as “traditional recipe” advises, should be taken three times a day in a glass of wine at a time when a woman wants to become pregnant. It also helps with menstrual disorders and a number of women’s diseases.

How is Horehound Tea prepared:

Two teaspoons of marrubium vulgare should be poured with two and a half ounces of hot water and drained after three to five minutes. It is advisable to take three to five cups daily. Because of the harsh taste, some people find it easier to drink tea when it is cold. You can sweeten it, but with a small amount of honey (we recommend manuka honey), although it is better/healthier clean, without anything.

Horehound tea should be drunk at least three months continuously. During the period you should take a break. As soon as pregnancy is established, discontinue taking tea. You can also prepare horehound candy, which is very tasty!
