Feverfew (Tanacetum parthenium) is a member of the sunflower family, and has been used for centuries in European folk medicine as a remedy for headaches, arthritis, and fevers. The term feverfew is adapted from the Latin word febrifugia or "fever reducer."

Native to southeastern Europe, feverfew is now widespread throughout Europe, North America, and Australia.

Feverfew is a short perennial, growing 60cm to 1.4m tall, and will grow in any soil, self seeding readily and requiring little cultivation to thrive. Feverfew produces small, daisy-like yellow flowers between July and October, and these blooms are arranged in a dense flat-topped cluster. Its has yellow-green leaves which are said to be bitter tasting, but it is these which are harvested, and have been heralded as an aid to control migraine headaches.
