Spilanthes acmella-Spilanthes Tincture
Known as the "toothache plant," spilanthes contains an analgesic compound called spilanthol that can help ease toothache, gum pain, and sore throats. Spilanthes also stimulates saliva secretion. Because saliva contains antibacterial compounds and digestive enzymes, the salivation-inducing property promotes healthy digestion and helps protect teeth and gums. Spilanthes can be useful for fungal or parasitic infections, or viral outbreaks such as cold sores. Some also use it as an aphrodisiac.
