I always say that horehound is "as bitter as unrequited love."  The way
that I take my syrup is in a cup of hot water.  When I am sick and coughy,
it really tastes wonderful!!   

I have one client who would drink my syrup as a cordial.  I think he is
wierd and tell him so, but I have seen him upend the bottle, take a swig of
it, and smack his lips!

As my ole dad says: it takes all kinds to make the world go around  ;-)

The lemon balm is a good idea!  Studies have shown it to be anti-viral and
what a wonderful time to have that.  I think I will brew up a batch of my
syrup and throw in some Lemon Balm!!

Good for you!  Doesn't it feel wonderful when people actually use your
"potions and nostrums" and can see that they feel better. 

Did you post your recipe for us?  Would you!?
