So you are looking for guidlines on prescribing herbs?

My apologies, so many posts here, it is hard to keep track of them all. I will go straight to that post to have a look.

There is no potency selection with herbs, its just the mother tincture (or you might use other ways of applying herbs like infusions or poultices). Potency selection is unique to homoeopathy.

I don't really know alot about herbalism except for what what I glean out of our materia medicas. I have heard that Scudder's American Eclectic Materia Medica and Therapeutics is a good classic herbalism textbook.

Mother tincture is the basic material. Something like zero potency. All other potencies are made from that.


Dosage varies from 5 drops to 50 drops.People prescribe mostly based on their own experience.
