Feverfew (Tanacetum parthenium)
Feverfew is a tremendously helpful herbal ally with a long history in country and folk medicine.
Most commonly in modern herbal medicine it is considered to be an HEENT herb (Head, Ears, Eyes, Nose, and Throat), with its most notable modern day use as a pain and frequency reducer in migraine headaches. However, due to its bitter properties, it was previously considered a popular herb to be used in issues with digestion, sluggish liver, and constipation. Whether you use it for its modern descriptions, or its traditional applications, this herb has proven to be tried and true over time.
