(American Penny-royal.).


We have an interesting case of poisoning by this drug, recorded by Dr. Toothaker, in the second volume of the Philadelphia Journal of Homoeopathy, page 655.

In domestic practice the oil of penny-royal has been principally used as an emmenagogue, for the purpose of bringing on the catamenia or even abortion. It has not been used much by homoeopathic physicians. It may prove useful in sub-acute ovaritis, metritis, also in dysmenorrhoea, threatening miscarriage.

Charles Julius Hempel
Charles Julius Hempel (5 September 1811 Solingen, Prussia - 25 September 1879 Grand Rapids, Michigan) was a German-born translator and homeopathic physician who worked in the United States. While attending medical lectures at the University of New York, where he graduated in 1845, he became associated with several eminent homeopathic practitioners, and soon after his graduation he began to translate some of the more important works relating to homeopathy. He was appointed professor of materia medica and therapeutics in the Hahnemann Medical College of Philadelphia in 1857.
