Certified Organic Feverfew Summary
In days past feverfew was used to save the lives of people who had fallen from the Parthenon, the temp of the goddess Athena on the Acropolis in Athens, which gave feverfew its scientific name parthenium.
Considered by some to be merely an invasive weed, feverfew is actually quite beautiful with blooms that resemble miniature daisies.
Certified Organic Feverfew Uses
Feverfew has been said to be a great herb for headaches.
Dried certified organic feverfew herb can be boiled in water, after which the resulting herb decoction should be allowed to cool. It can then be taken as a liquid. Learn more about fomentations and decoctions here on our sister blog Scratch Mommy.
Some people use feverfew in tinctures, teas, and even in capsule form.
Precautions: Not for use in pregnancy. Feverfew may cause an allergic reaction in people who are sensitive to the Asteraceae (Ragweed) plant family. We always recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
