When a remedy is being made from an animal substance or plant extract, it is possible to dissolve it in a 90% pure alcohol / 10% distilled water mixture. It is then left to stand for up to a month, with the occasional shaking, and then it is strained through a press. This resulting liquid is known as the MOTHER TINCTURE, designated by the letter Ǿ. Insoluble substances, e.g. metals, have to be ground continuously until they become soluble – this process is known as TRITURATION. They are then prepared like the soluble substances of animal and plant origins
In order to produce increasing strengths of remedies, they must undergo what is called POTENTIZATION. This takes place on either the decimal X scale or the centesimal C scale. In the decimal scale the dilution actor is 1:10. In the centesimal scale the dilution factor is 1:100.
To produce a 1C potency of a remedy, one drop of the mother tincture is added to 99 drops of a 90% pure alcohol / 10% distilled water mixture and shaken vigorously by banging on a leather bound book (SUCCUSSED). To produce a 2 C potency, one drop of the 1C mixture is added to 99 drops of a 90% pure alcohol / 10% distilled water mixture and again SUCCUSSED. Any 6C potency has been through this process 6 times. Any 30C potency has been through this process 30 times. The greater the strength of potency, the more dilute the mixture.
