How to use your remedies

Homeopathic remedies require some special handling and storage so that they may not lose their power and become inert as a result of contamination. They should be kept away from strong light, heat, and especially exposure to strong odours for example Camphor, menthol, mothballs, carbolic soap and perfumes.

The medicines or remedies as we call them, are supplied in the form of pills, tablets or powders. The dose should be tipped into the bottle cap and transferred to the mouth, or, if in powder form, be tipped directly onto the tongue. You do not need to take water to ‘wash the medicine down’. Absorption takes place from the mouth – chew or preferably suck the tablets or pills.

Do not eat, drink, or smoke for 10-15 minutes before and after taking the remedy – this ensures that the mouth is free of the effects of food, drink, tobacco smoke, toothpaste, mouth-wash and confectionery.

While taking homeopathic remedies it is preferable to avoid the use of other medicines, including laxatives, nasal drops and liniments. Avoid Coffee, Camphor, Menthol, Peppermint and Eucalyptus.
