homeopathy versus herbal tinctureshello,
I am wondering what the difference is between a homeopathic remedy and the same remedy as a herbal tincture. I know that homeopatics are extremely dilute and I understand the "like cures like", and that some of the remedies are poisonous in the undiluted form. but what about chamomile or calendula for example? both can be used in the undiluted form as tincture or tea. So for example, if I have a minor wound I want to treat, would I apply a homeopathic spray or a herbal tincture? does it make a difference? or is that purely philosophical?
thanks a lot!

Homoeopathic medicines are made through a combination of SUCUSSION (striking the container against an elastic object) and DILUTION. Dilution makes the substance less dangerous, but it is the sucussion that unlocks the true power within, and transfers it across to the water.

so are you saying that homeopathy is in general more powerful than a herbal tincture? or does it depend on the case, wich one is indicated?
to give a specific example, i've got a baby who is going to get her tongue tie lasered and i am wondering whether i give her calendula to speed up healing in a homeopathic dose or a homemade tincture. same with chamomile to calm her down.
