Product Overview

As the name might suggest, Feverfew has historically been used for fevers but its more from confusion than any powers the plant has. The herb was called Featherfoil in the Middle Ages after its feather-like leaves. This soon adapted to Feverfew and was THEN used to treat fevers by herbalists of the day. Feverfews actual benefits we also discovered by accident after the wife of the chief medical officer of the UK’s National Coal Board was told about chewing the herb for headache relief by a miner! This gave her instant relief and was heard about by the City of London Migraine Clinic who tested chewing Feverfew leaves on several clients with instant success.
