Spilanthes (toothache plant) 

Acmella oleracea

Spilanthes toothache plant blooms resemble daisies at first sight, but closer examination shows that they are shaped like yellow 1-inch olives.  This plant will spread profusely through your garden, so make sure that were you plant them is where you want them otherwise keep them in a pot... think mint. Scientific research has shown that it can be used to treat toothaches, but it may often be used to treat inflammation and stomach issues. Yes, these make your mouth numb. Just ask all of my poor daughters friends who come over, and get tricked into trying it.
