Avoid during pregnancy and while nursing. Because it can diminish blood-clotting ability, feverfew should not be used in conjunction with blood-thinning medications and should be avoided for at least a week prior to surgery. In rare cases feverfew can cause irritation of the gastrointestinal tract, mouth, or tongue; taking it with food can minimize this possibility. In cases of severe allergy to ragweed, a close relative of feverfew, use feverfew under the guidance of a qualified health-care practitioner. In rare cases topical use of feverfew can cause contact dermatitis.
HOW TO MEASURE OUR TINCTURES:
Suggested doses are given in drops. However, for easy dosing, you may want to use the guidelines below:
Droppers: If a dropper were immersed in a tincture bottle and the bulb squeezed twice, the number of drops in the pipette for most given tinctures will be approximately 30 drops.
Note: These are only averages. More viscous (thicker) tinctures will produce fewer, and bigger, drops.
Teaspoons: There are approximately 120 drops in 1 teaspoon (approximately 4 droppersful).

Tanacetum parthenium (formerly Chrysanthemum parthenium)
Asteraceae (Daisy Family)
The genus name Tanacetum derives from the Latin anthanasis, "immortal," referring to the long life of the flowers. The species name parthenium derives from the Greek parthenonos, "virgin," in reference to the famous temple dedicated to the goddess Athena; legend tells that feverfew was used to save the life of a worker who fell from the walls of the temple.

The flowers deter bugs and moths and are sometimes added to sachets kept with clothing. They also can be rubbed fresh onto the skin as an insect repellent. The essential oil is used in perfumery.
