Of course, there are more scientific names associated with this sturdy, annual plant that is commonly grown in many gardens – Chrysanthemum parthenium, Tanacetum parthenium and Matricaria parthenium. But, fancy words aside, what kind of health benefits can this plant offer?
One might guess that feverfew herb is mostly associated with fever treatments. Feverfew is based on a Latin word that means fever reducer.

There is, however, evidence that supports ancient Greek doctors used feverfew for depression and various muscle aches. Once again, modern research has struggled to definitively correlate and show this treatment works consistently for that purpose. However, many … Read More

As she was putting together her portfolio collection during her last year as a fashion student at Parsons School of Design, Najla A. Burt called her mother for help. She needed to come up with a name for her clothing line.
