A tincture is an infusion of an herb or herbs, for medicinal use. Certain preparations of liquids are used to extract the beneficial plant compounds out of the plant solids. My tinctures are highly concentrated so a few drops goes a long way. To use a tincture, simply add a few drops to a glass of water and drink it. 

Feverfew is renowned as a treatment for migraine headaches and fevers. It is complementary to our “ouch” roll-on, “well” roll-on, and our ImmuBiotic Tincture.

Feverfew, also known as Matricaria, is a short bush with daisy-like flowers.

The name feverfew stems from the Latin word febrifugia, which means “fever reducer.” The first-century Greek physician Dioscorides prescribed the herb for “all hot inflammations” and as an antipyretic (something that reduces or stops a fever). It’s also known as “featherfew” because of its feathery leaves.

The ancient Greeks also called feverfew “Parthenium,” supposedly because it was used medicinally to save the life of someone who had fallen from the Parthenon during its construction in the fifth century B.C. It also was known as “medieval aspirin” or the “aspirin” of the 18th century.

In Central and South America, the plant has been used to treat a variety of disorders. The Kallaway Indians of the Andes Mountains value its use for treating colic, kidney pain, morning sickness. and stomach ache.

Costa Ricans use a decoction of feverfew to aid digestion, as a cardiotonic, an emmenagogue (herb that stimulates blood flow in the pelvic area and uterus) and as an enema for worms. In Mexico, it’s used as an antispasmodic and a tonic to regulate menstruation. In Venezuela, it’s used for treating earaches.

Research shows that consuming feverfew helps reduces the frequency and helps to get rid of migraines and headache symptoms, including pain, nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light and noise.

Feverfew is thought to hinder the production of prostaglandins, the hormone-like substances that cause pain and inflammation.

In one study, Feverfew extract inhibited the growth of breast and cervical cancer cells.

Other research indicates that feverfew can help prevent blood clots from forming and growing — and hence reduce the risk of death from heart attack or stroke!
