Coltsfoot is used for respiratory complaints; it is an expectorant and cough suppressant. For many hundreds of years, it was burned over charcoal or made into tobacco and the smoke was inhaled, sometimes with herbs like Verbascum (Mullein) and Marrubium vulgare (white horsehound). Nowadays it is generally taken as a tea to effectively clear congestion, or as a tincture, or made into a cough syrup.
