Toothache Buds | 17g
Spilanthes is a genus of flowering plants that belongs to the family Asteraceae. Also known as the toothache plant or the buzz button plant, Spilanthes is a popular medicinal herb that is native to South America and Africa but is now cultivated in many parts of the world.
The plant is characterized by its small yellow or white flowers, which grow in clusters at the ends of the stems. The leaves are often toothed and have a slightly serrated edge. The plant is known for its distinctive taste and tingling sensation, which is caused by the presence of a natural compound called spilanthol.
Spilanthes has been used for centuries in traditional medicine for its various health benefits. The plant is rich in bioactive compounds, including spilanthol, which has been shown to have analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties. It has also been used as a natural remedy for dental pain, toothaches, and gum infections.
In addition to its medicinal uses, Spilanthes is also used as a culinary herb in some cultures. The flowers and leaves have a tangy, slightly bitter flavor and a numbing, tingling sensation in the mouth, which makes them a popular addition to salads, soups, and other dishes.
