Feverfew also known as medieval aspirin, nosebleed and featherfew for its feathery leaves, is a member of the daisy family. Feverfew powder has had a long history of use dating to ancient Greece. In fact, the first-century Greek physician Dioscorides recommended feverfew for “all hot inflammations.” The plant received its name from the Latin febrifugia, which translates to “fever reducer.”
