Practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) regularly purchase organic herbs such as Chrysanthemum morifolium in a variety of complaints. Powdered Chrysanthemum morifolium may be used in a suspension of water or oil and sprayed on food crops.
Those who are planning to use Chrysanthemum morifolium as a natural herb remedy should not use it for self-medication, however. Like other organic herbs, Chrysanthemum morifolium should be used to treat illness only under the direction of a naturopathic doctor or licensed herbalist.
