Medicinal herbs, including the Asteraceae family (AF), have different antimicrobial and therapeutic effects. Therefore, they can be used as health factors in the food and medicinal industries. In this systematic review, the essential information was collected from the relevant databases, e.g., PubMed, Sciencedirect, and Google Scholar based on medicinal herbs, AF, essential oil, antimicrobial, antioxidant, therapeutic effect, and Covid-19 keywords. AF can be used as safe preservatives and food additives with a specific amount of consumption in the food industry thanks to their good flavor, antioxidant and antimicrobial effect. Due to their therapeutic effects, they can improve the health role of food. AF herbs contain important bioactive compounds, but not all of them can be used as medicine and food supplements since yarrow, chamomile, and artichoke exhibit toxic effects in high dosage, therefore, the consumption of these herbs should be considered to not endanger the health of the consumer.
