Toothache Plant is a tender perennial that is commonly used to treat toothaches along with other mouth, throat, and gum conditions. The leaves and flowers can be chewed to have a mildly anesthetizing effect.

This medicinal herb also has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, and it enhances the immune system. The leaves are often eaten raw and taste good in salads.

In areas of frost, grow Toothache Plant seeds as annuals. It prefers full sun or partial shade. Start the herb seeds indoors 4 to 6 weeks before the last expected frost date.
