Bugleweed (Lycopus virginicus) medicinal herb, otherwise called Ajuga is native to North America, North West Asia and Europe and it is closely related to the European herb called gypsywort.  Although the whole plant may be used the aerial part is the main part used by most individuals.

The common names are Ajuga, Sweet bugle, Lycopus virginicus, Water bugle and Gypsywort. The entire plant can be used. It is a perennial herb which may grow up to two feet in height and it is from the Labiatae family.

The medicinal properties are sedative, astringent, mild narcotic as well as tonic. The leaves and the flowers are used as herbal medicine to treat various various illnesses.  The constituents are essential oil, flavonoid, resins, magnesium and caffeic acid.

The juice of the plant is a black dye from which the Romans allegedly used it to tan their skins to mock the Egyptians who resided in Europe and this is supposedly where the name gypsywort derived.
