    Cimicifuga is Latin meaning “bug” and fugere meaning “to drive away.” “Bugbane” refers to the plant’s odor, repelling insects. “Cohosh” is Algonquin for “rough” referring to the feel of the root. American Indians used its roots medicinally as an astringent, poison and snakebite antidote and to stop coughing. Roots considered an aphrodisiac for women.
