Recently I shared a video on YouTube about using herbs to help support fever.

Because this blog post is meant to be a supportive accompaniment, I would strongly suggest checking out the video below so you have some context for the list I am about to share.

Please note – nothing shared with you today is meant to be interpreted as medical advice or a treatment for a specific condition. I share this information for educational purposes only and strongly recommend that you consult your natural health care practitioner of choice OR continue to do your own empowered research.

Some Amazing Febrifuge Herbs to Consider​

There is a long list of herbal allies that can help support us when we are moving through and experiencing illness that presents with a fever. When we are narrowing down and deciding which herbs to use, it is wise to look at the other properties that the plant has. If you have a sinus infection and are experiencing headache, nasal congestion and a fever; choosing a plant that is a febrifuge, a decongestant and aids with stimulating the immune system would be great wouldn’t it?

If you want to learn how to formulate and truly deep dive into how to use herbs to support you and your family, while becoming empowered to experience greater health and vitality, I invite you to explore my monthly membership platform, Weavers of Plant Wisdom.

The List of Febrifuges​

This list is by no means exhaustive, but these tend to be the herbs I use most often in clinic.

  • Achillea millefolium – Yarrow
  • Eupatorium perforliatum – Boneset
  • Hyssopus officinalis – Hyssop
  • Inula helenium herb – Elecampane leaf/flower
  • Marrubium vulgare – White Horehound
  • Matricaria recutita – German Chamomile
  • Melissa officinalis – Lemon balm
  • Mentha spp – Mint species (Peppermint, Spearmint)
  • Mondarda fistuolsa – Wild Bergamot
  • Nepeta cataria – Catnip
  • Plantago spp. – Plantain
  • Potentilla recta – Sulfur cinquefoil
  • Prunella vulgaris – Heal-all
  • Sambucus nigra – Elderflower/Elderberry
  • Saponaria officinalis – Soapwort
  • Urtica dioica – Stinging nettle herb

I hope you find this list of fever herbs useful in your own learning and in the act of building your home apothecary.

Until next time,
