Eyeball Toothache Plant Acmella Oleracea Seeds
Packet of more than 30+ seeds of the “Eyeball” form of toothache plant!
Be aware that as the seeds are really tiny, they were impossible to winnow. The seed is the little black dots , and the tan coloured petals of the flower are in the packet too.
Just sprinkle the lot on the soil, water and wait!
You can’t really go wrong with these guys really!
Same effects as the other variety, but this is not the plain yellow “Lemon Drop” type plant, it’s the yellow on with the vivid red center that looks like an Eyeball..
Its “Acmella Oleracea” not “Spilanthes Oleracea” (although I have it from time to time too.)
Very cool plant, and its always one of the first plants I show guests.
Great to chew on just for fun! I eat one bud everyday as I like the numbing sensation, and they are meant to be great for the immune system.
It grows so quick once established that there is never a shortage and you can propagate by cutting or the huge numbers of seed it produces.
“Spilanthol”, is the main chemical within the plant that has a very powerful local Anesthetic action.
It really does, and as it has strong, natural anti-bacteria, anti-fungal, antiviral, anti-parasitic, and increases the production of saliva aiding digestion, its a great natural treatment for tooth, mouth and even skin issues.
Feels really cool, just like a shot from a dentist but NO PAIN at all.
Just tingling, tangy acid candy taste, and instant relief from pain!
Lasts about 10mins of noticeable numbness, and the pain relief properties continue for an hour or two..
Apparently its also been used to treat Malaria and Ringworm successfully?
Better for you than Big Pharma’s answers to Toothache and localized Pain in my humble opinion, and MUCH more effective. The fact it helps to treat the problem, not just mask the pain has gotta be a good thing I reckon!
Just as effective as the lemon drop form with the main differences I can see are it gets bigger purple leaves and is slower to grow and set fruit. It prefers cool shady spots and lower overall temperatures. Less seeds produced, but the seeds are slightly bigger and just as easy to grow. Both awesome in my opinion.
Grown by us organically, no nasties, no chems, no problems!!!
