Description

Feverfew - The Gardener's Aspirin

Feverfew is a very aromatic herb that has medium to yellow-green leaves with long lasting small, white, daisy-like flowers.

Details

A hardy plant, feverfew needs little attention. Feverfew is propagated several ways, by seed, by root division, and by cuttings. At first glance it bears a striking resemblance to chamomile. Like chamomile, feverfew produces masses of bloom, but in sprays rather than individual flowers. The whole plant, even the tiny seeds has a medicinal, though no unpleasant scent.

History

The name feverfew is a corruption of the French febrifuge, from the Latin febri, meaning "fever," and fugere, meaning "to chase away". Feverfew has a long history in treating fevers and headaches, and was once known familiarly as "the housewife's aspirin".

Uses

Leaves are used in digestive aperitifs, are known to relax blood vessels, reduce inflammation and as a mild sedative. Documented benefits in reducing migraines, it has a cumulative effect to inhibit compounds associated with migraines and arthritis.
