Coming from the boreal forest, the sweet fern is a plant that was used medicinally by several Native American tribes in North America. These tribes use this plant primarily as a poultice to treat a variety of ailments. In contrast, the sweet fern leaves are still used for most of the same purposes in modern herbalism.
