Homeopathic medicines are natural substances derived from plant, mineral, or animal sources. Most homeopathic medicines are made from alcohol tinctures, which are then successively diluted. But if the substance is not soluble in alcohol, it is ground together with milk sugar in a mortar and pestle. Homeopathic dilutions are either made on the C scale, where 99 parts of water are added to one part of the medicine for each dilution, or the X scale, where 9 parts of water are added to one part of medicine for each dilution. The dilutions are then dropped onto milk sugar pellets. Typical dilutions sold in stores are 6 X, 6 C, 12 C, 30 X, and 30 C. Homeopathy typically uses medicines in high dilution. Also, herbalism prescribes herbs based on their use in traditional medicine, while homeopathy prescribes them based on the law of similars.
