Self-Heal Plant - The Lost Herbs Here is an interesting article about Prunella Vulgaris, aka Self heal, heal-all, all heal, and many other names. When I got bitten by a copperhead in 2014, I had to have surgery on my hand to remove the necrosis. I had found this plant in my field a year or two before, and looked it up. I moved some to my garden, and it comes up wherever. (It is not invasive like kudzu the vine that ate the south...) Anyway, I made tea with it and used it as a wound wash as often as I changed the dressing on my hand. It healed completely within 10 days, and both of my doctors were very impressed. I used the tea and A&D ointment as I am allergic to antibiotics.
