Since the time of the first century Greek physician, Dioscorides, the plant has been used for stomach ailments, fevers, menstrual irregularities and headache. In the 1633 edition Gerarde’s Herball , there is a hint of the use of the plant for headache, “It is good for them that are giddie in the head." Feverfew leaf and leaf extract is now being promoted as a welcome relief for migraine sufferers.
