China (Cinchona) Officinalis.

Peruvian Bark. Rubiaceae.

Unknown previous to middle of seventeenth century. Named after Countess El-Cinchon, wife of the vice-king of Peru. It was distributed by the Jesuits among the poor as a febrifuge. Grows on eastern range of Andes, and is being naturalized in India.

It was first proved by Hahnemann in 1790.

The yellow bark was mainly used in the provings.

Those chiefly used in pharmacy are:

1. Cinchona Calisaya, also called Cinchona Regia or Cinchona Flava, Royal or genuine yellow bark.

2. Cinchona de Huanuco, grey or silver Cinchona; and,

3. Cinchona Rubra, or Red Cinchona.

Hahnemann mentions that in 1790, when proving Cortex China, the first idea of the homeopathic law of cure dawned upon his mind.
