Description

Tincture made by a process of hydro-ethanolic percolation, with a ratio of 1 part Henbane Herb to 10 parts liquid. Liquid comprises of 55% water and 45% sugar beet derived ethanol.

Hyoscyamus niger, commonly known as henbane, black henbane or stinking nightshade, is a poisonous plant in the family Solanaceae.

Henbane originated in Eurasia, and is now globally distributed as a plant grown mainly for pharmaceutical purposes. Henbane is rare in northern Europe; its cultivation for medicinal use is spread and legal in central and eastern Europe and in India. Henbane is an endangered plant according to the World Conservation Union’s Red List.

The main active constituents of henbane are hyoscyamine (main ingredient), scopolamine and atropine, all highly toxic tropane alkaloids.

 

Medicinal Action and Uses

Analgesic - Henbane was used specifically for pain in the urinary tract, especially in the case of kidney stones. It has also been used for toothache.

Antispasmodic -

Hallucinogenic - The herb can cause hallucinations and very vivid dreams, so strong that people sometimes could not distinguish reality from illusion after using the plant.

Nervine – Has been used to treat nervous disorders such as mania and hysteria.

Sedative - The sedative and antispasmodic effect makes it a valuable remedy for Parkinson’s disease, where it relieves tremors and stiffness in the early stages of the disease.

Skin Conditions - can be used externally to treat ear ache, or applied to the skin to relieve pain from neuralgia, sciatica, arthritis and rheumatic conditions.
