This homeopathic medicine comes from the plant of the same scientific name Aconitum Napellus, commonly known as aconite napel. It is a plant belonging to the botanical family of Ranunculaceae and which is very widespread in northern Asia and Europe. It grows mainly at altitude or in damp woods.
From a botanical point of view, aconite napel is easily recognizable by its purplish blue flowers and a turnip-shaped tuber. Another of its characteristics is its high toxicity. Moreover, this is what earned it the vernacular name of devil’s turnip. In addition, in a therapeutic setting, it is only used in the form of homeopathic dilutions.
At the biochemical level, the main active agents of this plant are aconitine, mesaconitine and hypaconitine, which are primarily responsible for its toxicity. The presence of aconitic acids is also noted.
