The genus name Marrubium is thought to be derived from "marrob", the Hebrew word for "bitter juice" and others believe it is from Maria urbs, a town in ancient Italy. The species name, vulgare, is Latin for "common." The common name Horehound derives from the Old English "har hune", meaning "downy plant," in reference to the plant's hoary appearance.
Horehound, though having a bitter flavor, has long been a popular ingredient in candy, lozenges, syrups, and liqueurs. It is also sometimes an ingredient in beer, where it takes the place of Hops.
Horehound is believed to be one of the original bitter herbs of the Jewish Passover tradition. The fresh leaves of the plant can be immersed in milk and set out to kill flies.
