History

Boneset isn’t actually used to set bones. The name comes from its use in treating dengue fever or breakbone fever and from the pain associated with it. It has also been used (with mix success) to treat typhoid and yellow fevers. In more modern times, Boneset is being considered as a possible treatment for certain cancerous tumors.

The Plant

The plant itself is a perennial with numerous large flower heads. Each of these holds 10-20 white florets with an aromatic smell and an extremely bitter flavor. You can find Boneset blooming from July until September.
