Feverfew, with the scientific name Tanacetum parthenium, has a name that practically stands up saying that it is very medicinal. While the herb has a long history of use around the world and its health benefits are extremely well documented, most people have never heard of it. It is a flowering plant in the daisy family Asteraceae. It is a traditional medicinal herb which is commonly used to prevent migraine headaches, and is also occasionally grown for ornament. I honestly have not heard of this herb yet. If not because I was researching on different herbs that I will not be able to know this one.
Feverfew is a powerful anti-inflammatory, able to reduce pain and swelling associated with arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and headaches. Feverfew is one of only a small handful of effective natural remedies for migraine headaches. The herb is also useful for reducing general pain and body aches, as well as for calming tension and anxiety. Though this herb has medicinal capabilities, please do remember that Feverfew is POSSIBLY UNSAFE when fresh leaves are chewed. Chewing unprocessed Feverfew leaves can cause mouth sores; swelling of the mouth, tongue, and lips; and loss of taste. So please be mindful when trying to ingest Feverfew.
