Queen of the Meadow- make into a tea for good luck.
Common Names: Joe-Pye Weed, Queen of the meadow, Gravelroot, Kidneywort, Purple boneset, Purple thoroughwort. Mist flower - Joe Pye is alleged to have been a Native American healer who used the plant to treat typhoid fever.
Joe-Pye weed was employed by Native Americans in applications ranging from practical to superstitious. It was used by many tribes in the form of a tea made from the leaves that was a diaphoretic (sweat-producing) medicine. It was in this form that it was likely used by "Joe Pye" in the abatement of typhoid fever. Cherokee healers supposedly used a section of the hollow stem to spray the medicine over the sufferer. The flowers were used to treat postpartum pain in women and as a treatment for venereal disease. In some Indian cultures, a child washed in a solution made from jopiweed roots was thought to be strengthened; a child who was fretful and would not sleep was put in a bath to which the root solution was added as a soporific. It was a custom of the Fox Indians that a young brave could enhance his chances of success with the woman of his choice if he approached her after having nibbled on the plant. The Potawatomi Indians made a burn poultice from the leaves, considering the flower head to be a good luck talisman. It was also reportedly used to soothe the nerves, to improve the appetite and to enhance the complexion, a veritable panacea.
