    a small Mediterranean plant containing a volatile oil once used to relieve toothache


  1. Anacyclus pyrethrum

    Anacyclus pyrethrum is a perennial herb much like chamomile in habitat and appearance. It is in a different family from the plants known as pellitory-of-the-wall and spreading pellitory. It is found in North Africa, elsewhere in the Mediterranean region, in the Himalayas, in North India, and in Arabian countries. Medicinally, pellitory root has a pungent efficacy in relieving toothache and promoting a free flow of saliva and making it popular as a food spice. It induces heat, tingling and redness when applied to the skin. Although one might assume from the pyrethrum suffix that this plant may contain pyrethrins, it does not. The pyrethrum suffix is due to being named prior to the more recent pyrethrum species which do contain pyrenthins, but are not related to Anacyclus pyrethrum. Ayurveda and Siddha have more uses for this plant root and it has been used for centuries as a medicine. It is called Akkal-Kara in Hindi, Akkal Kadha in Marathi, and Akkarakaaram. An oil is prepared by a method known as pit extraction
