Feverfew is a herbaceous flowering plant that belongs to the Asteraceae family. It originates from the Caucasus, Anatolia and the Balkan Peninsula. The plant can grow up to 70 cm in height. The light green pinnatisected leaves have a pungent aroma. The flowers are similar to daisies in appearance and are produced in corymbs. They are usually about 20 mm in diameter. Feverfew is one of the most popular traditional herbal remedies for migraines due to the high content of the chemical called parthenolide. The name of the flower derives from the Latin word ‘febrifugia’ that signifies ‘fever fighter’. The plant was also known as the “medieval aspirin”.
