  • 'Brunella' was derived from brunellen, which was the common name that Germans called the plant because it cured an inflammation of the mouth found among soldiers called 'die Braeuen'.

  • Among natives of North America, the Chippewas used heal-all to treat 'diseases of women', the Delaware and Mohegans made soothing body-washes to treat fevers, and several tribes found that a tea made of fresh leaves remedied dysentery.
