The Meskwaki used this plant as an unspecified remedy and for baiting their mink traps. The Potawatomi believed a tea made from the leaves of this plant to be the best tonic for revival from exhaustion or a generally rundown condition. Early settlers used a poultice including P. tenuifolium on dog and other animal bites to prevent rabies. A leaf tea served as a general tonic and as a treatment for indigestion. They also used the leaves as a seasoning in cooking.
