Butterbur General Information
Butterbur (Petasites hybridus) is a native shrub of Europe, North America, and Asia that has been used by herbalists for centuries. Butterbur is a stout perennial herb arising from a coarse rhizome having a hollow, thick, reddish-brown leafless aerial stem that is covered with lance-shaped scales. It has lilac-pink flowers that are small and tubular. The leaves are so big that the Greeks named the Butterbur “hat plant.” The name Butterbur came for the plants leaves, which were used to wrap butter in the days before refrigeration. In the 14th century, the dried and powdered root was used for protecting people from the plague and other pestilent diseases, but was also used as a remedy for intestinal worms.

Butterbur is used to treat chest problems such as bronchitis, asthma, and whooping cough. It also helps with digestion especially when obstructed bile flow causes indigestion. This herb has been used for inflammation of the urinary tract. Externally, Butterbur is used as a poultice to treat wounds and skin eruptions.

Butterbur is said to inhibit the production of histamine, which helps to keep air passages open (including bronchial tubes and nasal passages), this action may help to relieve allergic congestion and seasonal allergies. In 2004 there was a study done that reported Butterbur to be as effective as the prescription drug fexofenadine (Allegra) in treating symptoms of hay fever. Another study done in 2005 showed results that Butterbur worked as well as the prescription drug cetirizine (Zyrtec). In addition to this it was found that Butterbur tends to cause less drowsiness, a common side effect of antihistamine medications.
