Boneset, scientifically known as Eupatorium perfoliatum, is a traditional herb used primarily in North American herbal medicine, particularly by Native American tribes and later adopted by European settlers. Here are some of the key benefits attributed to Boneset:

  • Fever Reduction: Boneset is perhaps most famous for its use in treating fevers, especially those associated with influenza and the common cold. It was traditionally used to break fevers by inducing sweating.
  • Respiratory Health: It has been used to treat conditions such as colds, influenza, acute bronchitis, and nasal congestion, largely due to its expectorant properties which help to clear mucus from the respiratory tract.
  • Anti-Inflammatory Properties: Boneset contains compounds that have anti-inflammatory effects, making it useful in the treatment of conditions where inflammation is a factor, such as arthritis and other types of joint pain.
  • Immune System Support: The herb is believed to enhance the immune system, making it effective in fighting off viral and bacterial infections.
  • Digestive Health: Traditionally, Boneset was used to relieve gastrointestinal issues such as indigestion, constipation, and stomachaches, although its use in this area is less common today.
  • Antimalarial Properties: Historically, Boneset was used as a treatment for malaria due to its quinine-like effects, though it is no longer used for this purpose in modern medicine.
