The word cyperus derives from the Greek kuperos and rotundus is from Latin, meaning "round". The earliest attested form of the word cyperus is the Mycenaean Greek ku-pa-ro, written in Linear B syllabic script.

Despite the bitter taste of the tubers, they are edible and have a nutritional value. In traditional Chinese medicine it is considered the primary qi regulating herb. The plant is mentioned in the ancient Indian ayurvedic medicine Charaka Samhita (ca. 100 CE). Modern ayurvedic medicine uses the plant, known as musta or musta moola churna, for treating fevers, digestive system disorders, dysmenorrhea and other maladies. Arabs of the Levant traditionally use roasted tubers, while they are still hot, or hot ashes from burned tubers, to treat wounds, bruises, carbuncles, etc. Modern alternative medicine recommends using the plant to treat nausea, fever and inflammation; for pain reduction; for muscle relaxation and many other disorders.

    This humble root has a wonderful earthy scent; considering it's occurrence in ancient incense recipes it's suprising how infrequently it is available for sale. If you are interested in ancient incense ingredients, I definitely recommend you try this.
