Collection: Jambu Tincture | Electric Daisy

Introduction

Jambu, Electric Daisy, aka The Toothache Plant, is known for its culinary uses in Asian and South American cultures. It produces a mild, pleasant electric zingy feeling in the mouth and promotes saliva production, aiding in the growth of beneficial mouth bacteria. Our Chilcuague (Heliopsis longipes) tincture offers a much stronger effect. The Toothache Plant features unique flowers resembling yellow olives with a deep red center, giving it a distinctive look. As a member of the Asteraceae family, it shares characteristics with asters, daisies, and cornflowers, but with a unique flower and memorable numbing effect.

In northern Brazil, fresh leaves of the Toothache Plant are added to salads for their unique flavor. Cooking diminishes its taste, so it is primarily used for its nutritional value and numbing property. The leaves are rich in vitamins A, C, and K, lutein, and magnesium.

Our Jambu tincture is a classic maceration according to HAB 3A of the German pharmacopoeia, harvested and produced in the Netherlands.

Other names: Jambu, Toothache plant, Electric daisy, Paracress, Buzz buttons, Schezuan buttons. Spilanthes oleracea, Spilanthes acmella

Usage

Use the included dropper to apply one full dropper (1 ml) of Jambu tincture in the mouth. Close your mouth and allow salivation for a few minutes before swallowing. Swishing saliva through the mouth and along the gums enhances the experience and benefits the bacterial flora. Licking your lips will intensify and broaden the sensation, which continues for several minutes after swallowing. 

Precautions

  • You are allergic to plants in the daisy family.
  • You consume alcohol, as it may prolong intoxication.
  • You use diuretics or have prostate cancer, due to its diuretic and hormone-interacting properties.
