Someone gave me some seeds of self heal. I googled it and couldn't find anything about it. What is it used for and how?

prunella vulgaris (self heal) is energetically cold so is used to clear heat from the body

its a lovely ornamental ground cover as well, bears spikes of blue flowers in late spring...worth growing for this alone!
