@31 I do plant some useful herbs at home for medicinal use. I can save some medicine fees. One plant is the Toothache plant,Spilanthes acmella Almost every week I pickthe leaves. The most common use is to treat toothache and throat and gum infections. The plant is further recommended as a cure for dysentery and rheumatism, and to enhance the immune system. It increases the flow of saliva and is useful in fever especially during summers. It is used against blood parasites, especially against malaria, both prophylactic and curative. The leaves and flower are hot, can be eaten like salad. It stop pain and itchiness in seconds.

I wonder if we have that kind of plant in my country. Yes, we have herbal plants at home.It is Malunggay or Moringa. At my parents' house they have more medicinal plants because they have spacious garden. Malunggay, gauva, Ashitaba, are among the herbal trees they grow.

Moringa Tea
Good you have some useful plant also. I plant quiet a number of Moringa trees and gauva too. I collect Moringa leaves for extra income and make into tea form. Gauva leaves believe can stop diarrhea too by taking the juice from leaves

How I wish we have that toothache plant here in our place. For me, Toothache is the most disturbing pain.You cannot and you cannot eat. It is as if your whole body is in pain. I really hate toothache.

I don't know which area you are, country side or town. Can be found near places with water small drain,farm.shade Asian plant Look out for the yellow flower (they grow in the bush also) the flower n leaves are hot when you bite. This plant easy to survive, I brought this plant to Cambodia for 2 days journey without root as long it has water (I kept in a container with wet tissue) I hope you can find plant as a matter of time When ripe the flower have tiny black seed.

@Chungshop .. I really do not know if we have that plant here. Or maybe we have, but then we do not know that it is the toothache plant. I haven't heard or learned about it from my parents too.

@magallon O great news then, just watch the small yellow flower and taste.when you are outdoor. You feel spicy or hot, same with the leave .Surround is wet. Take the whole plant and keep in water, plant survive also without root, put in a cup of water for few days you see the roots blooming. (pregnant not allow)

I have tried, but I can't get them to grow and bloom. They always die shortly after they break through the dirt.
