(The expressed juice of the fresh plant, Hyoscyamus niger, mixed with equal parts of alcohol.)
When dried the plant loses a great portion of its medicinal powers.
The following symptoms, which were produced by this drug on healthy persons, show the mental and emotional disorders and the derangement of the senses in which it is of use.
A dose containing a quadrillionth of a drop of the juice, or better, a small portion of such a drop is more than sufficient for all homoeopathic curative purpose when all other foreign irritants and drugs are kept away from the patient.
Frequent smelling at a saturated solution of camphor removes the troublesome effects of hyoscyamus when it has been given in too large a dose of in an unhomoeopathic case.
Although the symptoms of this plant recorded below are very numerous, they require to be added to in order to make them complete.

The true histories of this frightful disease show us several varieties of this malady in human beings, for each of which there will be a perfectly suitable remedy, among which henbane is one of the best.

Belladonna has already effected some perfect cures, and would have done this more frequently, had not either other interposing remedies been administered at the same time, or, and especially, had it not been given in such enormous doses that the patients were sometimes killed by the remedy. Large doses of drugs, homoeopathically suitable, are much more certainly injurious than such as are given without any similar (homoeopathic) relation to the disease, or such as have an opposite (antipathic) relation to the case, that is to say, are quite unsuitable (allopathic). In the homeopathic employment of medicines, where the totality of the morbid symptoms has a great, similarity to the action of a drug, it is really criminal not to give quite small doses, indeed as small as possible. In such cases doses of the size prescribe in the routine practice become real poisons and murderous agents. Convinced by a thousand-fold experience, I assert this of the homoeopathic employment of medicines universally and invariably, particularly when the disease is acute ; and this is especially true of the employment of belladonna, stramonium, and hyoscyamus in hydrophobia. So let it not be said, "One of these three medicines was given in the strongest doses, and not too seldom, but every two or three hours, and yet the patient died that was precisely the reason." I reply with firm conviction, "that was precisely the reason Why the patient died, and you killed him. Had you let him take the smallest portion of a drop of the quintillitio-fold or decillion-fold attenuation of the nice or one of these plants for a dose (in rare cases repeating the dose after three or four days) then the patient Would have been easily and certainlysaved."
