The boneset plant has its history firmly rooted in North American origins. The Native Americans used it for colds and the flu. They were also used to treat malaria and the twigs used as seat producing agents. Mithridates VI Eupator, a king of Pontus used it as a medicine to treat his health as well as other superstitious means that the plant was associated with. The botanical name, which is perfoliatum, is derived from perfoliatus which implies that it is grown through leaves.
The plant is most prominently grown in the U.S today; it became official in the USA from the year 1820 to 1945. The name boneset is also derived from break-bone fever, it is an illness that is similar to influenza and it causes severe bone pain that was treated with the boneset plant. Through the course of history, the plant has been referred to by various names such as feverwort, sweat plant, thoroughwort.
In 1918, after the discovery of two distinct complexes in boneset, The Lloyd Brothers introduced the Specific Medicine Eupatorium in 1918. This proved to be a breakthrough in the use of boneset tincture for medicinal purposes and the practice has been modified to modern times.
