General description and domicile:
Native to India the poison nut tree is a fair sized tree with a thick trunk. The timber from the tree is very hard and durable and does not contain strychnine. It is an evergreen tree with smooth, deep green oval leaves about four inches long.
Leaves, bark and seeds contain strychnine, a virulent poison. Strychnine is mostly extracted from the disc-like seeds after drying.
Strychnine acts on the nervous system causing violent convulsions of the face (fixed in a rigid death-grin), severe non relaxing spasms of the abdominal (and other) which arrests breathing with death following soon.

Warning: Extreme care must be taken when handling this plant as very little contact with Strychnine can be fatal.

Chopped and steeped in alcohol to obtain mother tincture

History:
The poison nut tree was introduced into Europe in the 15th century and it was not long before its poisonous properties were used but it took a further 200 years before the stimulating and digestive properties of small doses were discovered. However this was soon discontinued as far too many died from this practice.

The homeopathic remedy was proved by Hahnemann.
