Toothache Plant Acmella oleracea

                  Like many other medicinal plants out there in the mystical realms of nature, the Toothache plant obtained its common name from its most common use. When chewed, it produces a numbing sensation, like that of Kava Kava. In medical terminology, this effect is refereed to as an anesthetic. It's useful for more than toothaches though, having a wide range of medicinal properties.

Medicinal Applications

For stammering, toothache, and stomatitis, a decoction of infusion of the leaves and flowers is prepared. It has diuretic properties as well. A diuretic is something that stimulates the production of urine. The toothache plant increases the production of saliva. Maybe this could help cure cotton mouth ;) Different varieties have shown many other medicinal properties including: immunomodulatory, antiviral, insecticidal, antimalarial, antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and antimutangenic.

Phytochemistry

Phytochemistry is the study of phytochemicals that are made by plants. As it turns out, human beings are not the most advanced chemist on the planet. We learn from plants that have been around way before we were. They don't need solvents and college to do what they do either. Nothing but organic resources made available by their environment along with sunlight, and air is needed for these botanicals to produce pharmacological constituents.

Acmella oleracea contains fatty acid amids like spillanthol. This is whats thought to increase saliva. It also has stigmasteryl-3-O-b-D-glucopyranoside and a variety of triterpenes.

Growing

The seeds can be sowed in a damp compost. They will sprout in a few weeks. Perlite in the compost helps. They like full sun and plenty of water.
