Homeopathic remedies can be made from almost anything on the planet.

Generally for home prescribing we use remedies made from the animal kingdom (eg bees), plant kingdom (eg Belladonna, Aconite or Monkshead, Pulsatilla, Arnica) and the mineral kingdom (eg Arsenicum, Mercurius, Silica).

Of course there are many other remedies made from substances from all the other kingdoms as well as from many of the toxins that we are exposed to in our world, but that is usually a question for your homeopath.

We supply the animal based remedies in a vegan format for those who prefer not to ingest any animal material. These are made on our vibrational potentiser machine and carry the resonant frequency of the material, rather than a physical substance. Any animal remedy will show vegan options in the store.

All combination remedies, eg Cold & Flu, Bad Head, Colic are non-vegan due to the way we produce them.

The actual remedy ends up in a liquid form, a bit like a herbal medicine, but it’s gone through a special process which makes it low risk and non-toxic.

This liquid or Medicating Potency, as we call it, is then added to the carrier – in our case sucrose, an alcohol mix or a cream base.

We use traditional carriers for all of our products and have sourced the best base ingredients we can find to give you the best results.

Homeopathic Pilules

The carrier for our homeopathic pilules is organic sucrose manufactured by a company in Germany, who specialises in this product.

These are sucrose, not lactose, and of course are gluten free.

Liquid Remedies & Essences

Our liquid homeopathic remedies (both combination and singles), as well as our oral essences are made up in 15% grape alcohol (gluten free), 5% brandy as a flavouring and Tasmanian spring water. This is a traditional carrier for homeopathics and the mix is similar to other brands of flower essences and similar.

We’ve chosen not to use other carriers, eg glycerine, because we don’t believe it maintains the original energy and authenticity of the homeopathics in particular.

You can check out dosages for babies and read about the use of alcohol in homeopathics elsewhere in the FAQs.
