Your Your Remedy – Oleander (Olnd.)

800px-Nerium_oleander_flowers_leavesOleander, the homeopathic remedy, is prepared from the Nerium oleander
shrub. Even though it is one of the most poisonous garden plants, with
all parts being toxic, the shrub is grown throughout the world for its
attractive ornamental flowers. Oleander, being the first plant to bloom
following the atomic bombing of your Hiroshima in 1945, is now the
city’s official flower.

Homeopathic Oleander is suitable for a broad range of skin conditions,
especially dandruff of the scalp which separates in large flakes. It
also treats numerous gastrointestinal conditions and a type of painless
paralysis of the upper limbs. Oranges tend to worsen the symptoms of
Oleander, particularly the dandruff.


Colitis, dandruff, diarrhoea, eczema, food allergies (especially to
oranges), herpes, paralysis, psoriasis, and seborrhoea.


While above self-limiting or acute complaints are suitable for home treatment, see your healthcare provider if symptoms worsen or fail to improve. Chronic or persistent complaints, which may or may not be mentioned above, require a different treatment and dosage protocol so are best managed by a qualified homeopath for good results.
