Native to North America, boneset was a popular healing plant used by Native Americans. Do not confuse boneset (Eupatorium perfoliatum) with the purple flowered plant also commonly called “boneset” or “gravel root” (Eupatorium purpureum) or with the herb comfrey (Symphytum officinale) also commonly called “boneset” for its ability to heal broken bones, these are all different plants. This boneset, Eupatorium perfoliatum, is famous for treating all kinds of fevers and easing muscle aches. Until aspirin was discovered, this boneset was the herb of choice for fighting fevers and its symptoms.
