Buy Carbo Vegetabilis

General description and domicile:
Homeopathic vegetable charcoal is now made from Poplar, Beech or Silver Birch but according to the purists only Beech should be used.

Part used and extraction:
Beech logs the thickness of an arm is stripped of bark and then cut into three inch lengths which are then heated until red hot and luminescent before being sealed in an airtight container (traditionally an earthenware jar)

Remedy preparation:
The charcoal is ground to a fine powder and triturated with lactose sugar to obtain mother tincture

Through the ages the ability of charcoal to absorb gasses and toxins even when ingested has secured it a place in folklore medicine and even today charcoal tablets are prescribed by doctors for flatulence. Every keeper of tropical or marine fish know that charcoal filters are best for removing toxins and gasses retained in water. 

The remedy was proved by Hahnemann
