Really numbs

I grew this last year. So-so germination, a little bit of a drought here so had to water the garden every morning. Had 4 plants pull through and got enough flowers and small leaves to make a tincture. Did take a small blossom and bit on it and it did numb that whole side of my mouth. My husband wears dentures without any of the plastic based adhesives and likes taking a little bit of the tincture in some water and swishing in his mouth. Helps his gums stay healthy and numbs any little pain for eating. Expanding the area this summer.

Spilanthes!

Germination was good. Unfortunately we've had crazy weather so I think the plants would have done better without all the rain but I still got plants!! I tincture the plants so can't wait to taste the finished product! Dawn

Awesome Seeds! Germination 100%

I highly recommend Pinetree seeds. All seeds germinated and are doing wonderful! The customer service, the shipping and quality of their seeds are undeniably the best! Love my plants but hope I never have a toothache. Thanks Pinetree!
