The Southwest Indians rubbed chaparral resin on burns. They used chaparral tea to treat colds, bronchitis, chicken pox, snake bite, and arthritis. And they heated the tips of its twigs and applied the hot resin to painful teeth.

White settlers adopted the plant and used it externally for bruises, rashes, dandruff, and wounds, and internally for diarrhea, stomach upset, menstrual problems, venereal diseases, and cancers of the liver, kidney, and stomach.

Chaparral was listed as an expectorant (to clear mucus from the respiratory system) and bronchial antiseptic in the U.S. Pharmacopoeia from 1842 to 1942. But today, few herbalists mention it. Those who do suggest using it externally to prevent wound infections, and internally for intestinal parasites and bacterial and viral illnesses. It is an anti-inflammatory,antioxidant and an antimicrobial.
