Organic Kauai grown dried Spilanthes flower buds.

Description

Spilanthes, known as the toothache plant, buzz buttons, or natures pop rocks, is an analgesic that will pleasantly numb the mouth and throat. Revered for its immune-enhancing, and anti-septic effects, this incredible herb has been traditionally used in oral health routines for centuries. 

The flower bud has a grassy taste followed by a strong tingling or numbing sensation and often excessive salivation, with a cooling sensation in the throat. If you have a toothache, chew on a Spilanthes bud and your pain will instantly vanish to be replaced by a pleasant tingling sensation. An excellent addition to an herbalists medicine cabinet or tea lovers custom blend.
