Nicknamed the “deadly nightshade,” the Belladonna homeopathic remedy is originally made from a poisonous plant that has been in use for centuries for its herbal and beauty properties. There is no poison in its homeopathic form whatsoever.

For example, the berries of the Belladonna plant are known to dilate the pupils, which was why Roman women used this herb for beauty purposes (according to the beauty standards of those times, dilated eye pupils were considered to be gorgeous).

Allopathically, Belladonna is used to treat larynges spasms, to dilate the pupils for examination, to remove renal colic, passing stones, relax spasms following bladder issues, and as a cough medicine.
