Type of alcohol used in Homeopathy medicine

What kind of alcohol is used in homeopathic medicine? Once a homeopath told me that it is a distilled alcohol and you will not get intoxicated by it so
does it mean I can consume it in large quantity without being intoxicated?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
In fact, the alcohol used in homeopathic dilutions is much more potent than commercially available brands. It is around 90 percent abv, where as most of the scotch whiskeys vary between 40 to 50.

So, if you take a peg of nux vomica any potency, it's effect and level of intoxication will be twice when compared to scotch whiskey.

Try it out. No harm. :-)

Actually I have already tried it and didn't get the same effect as I get from consuming Vodka or brandy

That is why I am bit curious

I too am curious.

Why it does not cause intoxication/or harmful.

I have heard of usage of MT by drunkards. Is it true?

Why is alcohol used after all?

Does not water suffice?

Perhaps you diluted it too much. Try on the rocks.

It is not harmful because the homeopathic effect of a single drop or 30 ml. taken all at once is the same.

I heard stories of people consuming mother tinctures/ potency dilutions during prohibition periods.

Alcohol is the best storage medium.
