Tanacetum parthenium

origin : United States

 

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.
