toothache plant

Spilanthes oleracea

A medicinal herb that’s been used for generations to manage the pain of toothaches, foliage and flowers can be used as a natural anesthetic. Simply chew the leaves or flowers for a few seconds then you’ll experience a tingling and numbing sensation in your mouth. Plants are also wonderfully ornamental, and make great container plants and companions for other herbs, tropicals, and flowering annuals.
