The Content Of The Article:

The hornet (Marrubium vulgare) has been named the medicinal plant of the year 2018. Rightly, as we find! The common hawk, also called white hawthorn, common hornet, called Mariennesel or mountain hops, comes from the mint family (Lamiaceae) and was originally native to the Mediterranean, but was naturalized long ago in Central Europe. You can find it, for example, on paths or on walls. The hornet loves heat and nutrient-rich soils. As a medicinal plant, it is grown today mainly in Morocco and Eastern Europe.

Already at the time of the Pharaohs the andorn was regarded as an effective medicinal plant for diseases of the respiratory tract. Also in numerous recipes and writings of the monastic medicine (for example in the "Lorsch pharmacopoeia", originated around 800 AD) the Andorn is numerous represented. According to these manuscripts, his indications ranged from colds to indigestion. Even later, the hornet appeared again and again, for example in the writings of abbess Hildegard von Bingen (circa 12th century).
Even though the horzon as a medicinal plant has long since become less important, it is still used today for colds and gastrointestinal diseases. However, its ingredients have been little researched so far. The fact is, however, that the hornet mainly contains bitter and tannins, as the botanical name "Marrubium" suggests (marrium = bitter). It also contains marrubic acid, which stimulates bile flow and gastric secretion, resulting in better digestion. Butorn is also used for dry cough, bronchitis and whooping cough, as well as for diarrhea and chronic loss of appetite. When applied externally it is said to have a soothing effect, for example on skin injuries and ulcers.
