Product Description

Feverfew is a perennial in the daisy family originally native to Europe but now naturalized and cultivated throughout the world, including much of North America. Because feverfew is commonly grown in kitchen herb gardens and as an ornamental, its prolific appearance across the natural landscape demonstrates the ease with which it can escape cultivation unless confined.The herb's common name is adapted from the Latin febrifugia, which means "fever reducer." Due to a type of terpene called parthenolide, feverfew is primarily viewed today as a prophylaxis of chronic migraine. Be aware, however, that suddenly ceasing the intake of this herb after long-term use often results in a rebound effect that produces symptoms worse than before.

Mild and pleasant tasting. Combine with chamomile, catnip, mint and similar herbs in tea blends.
