Pipsissewa (Chimaphila umbellate), also known as prince's pine or ground holly, is a small evergreen shrub native to North America and Asia. Historically, various indigenous tribes used pipsissewa for a variety of medicinal purposes. Decoctions made from the leaves were used to treat urinary tract infections (UTIs), coughs, and stomachaches. Externally, poultices made from the plant were applied to wounds and sores to aid healing.

While some historical uses of pipsissewa are supported by contemporary herbalists, modern medicinal use of pipsissewa focusses on its potential diuretic and antiseptic properties, though these claims are not universally accepted within the medical community.

Pipsissewa leaves have a mildly sweet flavor and were once used as a flavoring agent in candies and sodas. However, due to safety concerns, this practice is no longer common. Consumption of large quantities of pipsissewa can lead to nausea, vomiting, and other side effects.

Pipsissewa also holds significance in some traditions of folk magic. It was associated with cleansing and protection and was sometimes used in rituals for healing and prosperity.
