Buy Homeopathic Opium

General description and domicile:
The opium poppy is native to Asia but is cultivated all over the world today as a garden flower and for medicinal purposes. It is an annual plant that
is well known for its flowers that are lilac in the wild but is cultivated in a great variety of colors from white to deep red/purple.
The seed pods are scored with a sharp instrument immediately after losing the petals and bleed a latex substance (called Opium) which is collected and dried. This latex is used extensively (legally and illegally) to make morphine and heroin.

Warning: Opium, morphine and heroin are exceptionally habit forming and recreational use of these drugs is illegal in all but very few countries.

Part used and extraction:
The latex, collected and dried

Remedy preparation:
Steeped and dissolved in alcohol to obtain mother tincture

The history of this plant is very mixed. Vast numbers of souls have been destroyed by addictions over thousands of years but morphine and codeine has eased the pains of millions of people in health care organizations across the globe. Codeine and morphine still plays a vital role in conventional medicine today but it is also true that heroin addiction is one of our biggest social problems.

Opium was proved by Hahnemann.
