People living in rural England have made use of Feverfew Herb since Anglo-Saxon times, although the common name of tanacetum parthenium actually derives from the Norman-Frenck word febrifuge. While some gardeners consider it an invasive weed, Feverfew Herb is actually quite attractive, with blooms resembling miniature daisies.
Dried Feverfew Herb is boiled in water, after which the resulting herb decoction is allowed to cool. It can then be taken as a liquid.
Feverfew is known as a headache aid as well as a help with fevers.
Brewing Guide: Infuse 1 teaspoons in 8 ounces of boiling water. Cover and allow to steep for 3-4 minutes.
Warning: Don't use with a weak digestion or emaciation. Not recommended with liver related medication. Avoid during pregnancy unless directed by medical professional.
