BONESET Compositae
(THOROUGHWORT, WHITE SNAKE ROOT)
Eupatorium perfoliatum, Eupatorium rugosum

BONESET has a reputation for preventing and curing unnatural illness.

Protection: To ward off jinxing illness, carry BONESET leaves in a mojo bag with Angelica Root and Devil's Shoe Strings. The alternative name WHITE SNAKE ROOT indicates that the plant also protects from Snakes.

Ritually Cleansing Body Rub: To counteract occult poisons, folks rub dry BONESET leaves all over their body, then take the leaves outdoors and burn them with 7-11 Holy Incense.

For Health: Brew BONESET leaf tea and bathe in it to get rid of enemy tricks that have affected your health. BONESET can also be used to purify a sick-room by sprinkling it onto the floor and then sweeping it out the front door.

Medical uses: BONESET is used in herbal medicine for coughs and colds.
