The word "Feverfew" derives from the Latin word febrifugia, meaning "fever reducer" or "to drive out fevers" and treat other inflammatory conditions. In fact, some people call it the “medieval aspirin”.

Headaches & Migraines - For centuries, people have been taking feverfew to treat migraines and headaches. If you have a headache, think Feverfew!

Feverfew is believed to help migraine sufferers because of the unique plant chemical it contains, parthenolide, which helps relieve smooth muscle spasms and can combat the widening of blood vessels that occurs in migraines. Feverfew can hel reduce the frequency of migraines and reduce symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light (flashing lights).

Feverfew is a famed herb for women, as a tonic for the uterus and ovaries. Venus is said to command this herb.

Menstrual Cramps - Feverfew is used for difficulties with the menstrual cycle, particularly helpful for discomfort and delayed moontime. Because Feverfew has been shown to reduce prostaglandin production, it can be helpful in easing menstrual cramps.

Also helpful for prevention of miscarriage, to help in difficult labour and retention of afterbirth, plus for infertility.

Congestion, asthma and bronchial infections - The soothing ability of feverfew also extends to the respiratory tract, where this herb is able to reduce inflammation and irritation, which can often exacerbate conditions like asthma or coughing. By allowing the respiratory tracts to relax, it can help soothe these symptoms and improve overall respiratory health.

Rheumatoid Arthritis & Pain - Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, feverfew has shown the potential to help with symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. One study found that parthenolide, one of the compounds in feverfew, was able to lessen the severity of joint destruction.
For thousands of years, feverfew has been used to prevent pain throughout the body, not just the pain of headaches and migraines. Following surgery or an injury, it can be successfully utilized for rapid and long-lasting relief.

Precautions - Pregnant women are recommended to avoid Feverfew entirely as it might lead to uterine contraction, resulting in miscarriage. Lactating mothers and children below two years of age should not take this herb.
