Substance description Hahnemann: “Ten grains of nux vomica seed, finely triturated in a warm mortar, are macerated with 1000 drops of alcohol, without heat for a week, to make a tincture. Of this one drop is raised to the decillionfold potency through 29 other diluting phials, each filled to three quarters with alcohol, by mens of two succussions given to each phial after the dilution is made. The same medicine is prepared in a simpler and almost more powerful and uniform manner, by taking one grain of the powdered nux vomica seed, and treating it like, other dry medicinal substances, by triturating it thrice with 100 grains of milk-sugar (according to the directions for the Homeopathic preparation of medicines in the second part of the book on Chronic Diseases) up to the millionfold powder attenuation.”
