The plant was widely used by the Indios of the Andes. Being a light drug, it received the name Pichi Pichi. Only the tips of the plant were used as a drug. It was used as incense for religious rituals and during healing ceremonies. Fabiana was used as well as a tonic tea for kidney pains and for complaints in the urogenital area. The tea was further used for inner cleaning, as a diuretic and for strengthening the stomach. It was known in Southamerica that Fabiana was helpful against liver flukes, which probably later lead to the suggestion to use Fabiana in general for liver complaints.
