Horehound is a versatile herb with a long history of use in magic and medicine. Its name derives from the Old English "hoar," meaning "gray" or "white," and "hune," meaning "honey," referring to the plant's fuzzy, gray-green leaves and sweet taste. It is said to have the power to dispel negativity, ward off evil spirits, and enhance mental clarity and focus. Horehound is commonly used in sachets, charms, and incense blends for protection, especially against curses, hexes, and psychic attacks. It can be used in various ways, such as bath teas, spell ingredients, or burning as incense. Whether you're a seasoned practitioner or a curious beginner, Horehound is a must-have herb for your magical and medicinal arsenal.
