China is an extract of the Peruvian tree
Cinchona Pubescens which grows wild in the tropical forests of South America. The tree is cultivated in Africa, India and Asia in tropical climates.

All of the plant is used, harvested in the flowering season.

Remedy preparation:
Chopped and steeped in alcohol to obtain mother tincture

The bark of the Cinchona tree (Peruvian Bark) has been used by the Jesuits to treat malaria and other diseses that cause delirium and fevers since the seventeenth century. In many places of the world it is still used as a malaria prophylactic and cure although there are more modern quinine derivative drugs available.
Hahnemann noticed in the early eighties that quinine (the extract from the Peruvian bark used to treat malaria with great success at the time) will induce the same symptoms as malaria, the disease that it cures, if taken in excess. This eventually led to the first proving of a homeopathic remedy and the development of the modality.
