Spilanthes! Or toothache plant, aka tingberry and electric daisy.. is an essential addition to your backyard medicine cabinet. A year round perennial that thrives in warm climates, it requires little maintenance and provides tons of benefits. Traditionally used to disinfect cavities, when you chew the berry it fizzes your mouth more powerfully than hydrogen peroxide. Keep chewing!! It's an anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial analgesic that will clean out your entire system, from the mucous membranes of your gums to your stomach lining and blood cells. In a nation and age where the third leading cause of death is western medical mistakes, it would be wise to remember our preventative plant medicines, and how they hold the key to long term health.. In balance with the Aina.
