African pyrethrum or Akarkara is a plant of the daisy family (asteraceae) that grows naturally in Pakistan and India. The rhizome of African pyrethrum is used as a gargle to relieve toothaches and sore throats.
It is harvested in the fall and dried. Its smell is reminiscent of licorice root. African pyrethrum is mainly sought after for its root. It contains pyrethrin, an active principle to which most of the benefits of the plant are attributed.

It strengthens the organism, tones it up, and clarifies ideas. The Romans used it as an aphrodisiac. The main alkylamides are anacyclose and pellitorin. And what would explain the increases in testosterone African pyrethrum is used for its analgesic action to soothe the pain: sore throat, dental pain, facial pain of nervous origin (facial neuralgia)…

This plant acts effectively against intestinal diseases caused by worms or parasites (vermifuge effect) and digestive disorders (difficult digestion). It is sometimes recommended in case of paralysis or inflammation of the tongue (glossitis), and sometimes also in case of obstruction of the salivary glands.
Finally, it is a natural mosquito repellent. Some attribute it to an antidiabetic property. African pyrethrum is native to the Middle East. In the 12th century, the nun Hildegard of Bingen wrote a detailed description of pyrethrum from Africa.
