Horehound can help ease coughing. You can make a tea by adding one tablespoon of horehound leaf to a cup of hot water and allowing it to steep for five minutes. Some wonderful cough drops are available at most grocery stores made from horehound, lemon, honey, eucalyptus and a variety of other things. These are very soothing and a good alternative to traditional lozenges. Old timers used to make hard tack candy with horehound in it.
