Feverfew has a long history of use in traditional and folk medicine, especially among early Greek and European herbalists. Feverfew, which looks similar to chamomile, is a perennial plant with small, daisy-like flowers. It is cultivated in flower gardens throughout Europe and the United States.

Below is a study on Feverfew.
Name of study: Feverfew (Tanacetum parthenium L.): A systematic review
Study authors: Department of Pharmaceutical Science, L. M. College of Science and Technology (Pharmacy Wing), Jodhpur- 342 003, India
Link to study: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3210009/
Conclusion of the study: T. parthenium (L.) contains many sesquiterpene lactones, with higher concentration of parthenolide lipophilic and polar flavonoids in the leaves and the flower heads. The plant also contains high percentage of sterols and triterpenes in the roots. Flowers and leaves and parthenolide showed significant analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antipyretic activities, which confirmed the folk use of feverfew herb for treatment of migraine headache, fever, common cold, and arthritis, and these effects are attributed to leaves and/or flowers mainly due to the presence of sesquiterpene lactones and flavonoids.
