Feverfew Aerial Parts

Folium Tanaceti parthenii Asteraceae

Feverfew is one of the most commonly used botanicals in Western herbal medicine for the prevention and treatment of migraine headaches. Evidence-based reviews suggest it is clinically valuable as a migraine prophylactic, but not as effective for treatment. Historical accounts suggest it is good for treatment. Feverfew is also used as a diaphoretic and for arthritis. Various varieties of Tanacetum are used. The only variety known to be effective is the parthenolide-yielding type.
