Boneset (Eupatorium perfoliatum) is a North American perennial that appears across parts of the eastern USA and Canada. Often referred to as thoroughwort, feverwort or sweat plant, boneset gets its name from a condition it was once used to treat, breakbone fever, which itself was so-called due to the unbearable bone pain it caused sufferers.

Most commonly found in marshy environments, boneset is rich in sesquiterpene lactones. These chemicals are thought to offer antitumour and antimicrobial benefits, as well as helping to boost the effectiveness of the immune system. As a result, it’s thought that boneset can help treat viruses like the flu, which is exactly what native Americans have long used the plant for.
For centuries, Native Americans have used boneset as a charm and herbal remedy. The root fibres were used as a charm on hunting whistles in the hopes of improving the whistle’s ability to attract deer. As a herbal remedy, Native Americans used boneset to try and reduce fever as well as help treat rheumatism, dropsy, dengue fever, malaria, pneumonia, and influenza.
Boneset may help treat bladder issues and constipation. It may also be used to treat acute bronchitis, nasal inflammation, fluid retention, pneumonia and may be used as a stimulant to induce sweating.
