I grew some horehound to see what I thought of it as a way to treat cough and sore throat. It does a good job, although it's not the best-tasting herb ever. I put a couple sprigs in with mint tea and LOTS of honey (yes, the honey helps, too, I've tried it alone but it just tastes better this way). It does help clear the lungs a bit, too.
