Feverfew

Feverfew Tincture

Feverfew (Tanacetum partenium)

Native to Asia and the Balkans, but now found across the world. Dried leaves are the most common part of the plant used. There is some evidence to suggest it can help reduce the frequency of migraines and associated symptoms such as pain, nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light. It may be more effective in patients with more frequent migraine attacks. It is also used for painful periods and arthritic pain.
