Spilanthes is commonly referred to as the “toothache plant” for the numbing effect it has in the mouth, and as such is helpful for a variety of oral and throat conditions. It may help fight microbes and fungus and may assist with stimulating the immune system, making it especially useful at the onset or beginning stages of infection. This plant promotes salivation (quite a lot!) and can be helpful for dryness in the mouth and poor appetite. It has a long history of use in traditional African, Chinese, and South American systems of medicine.
