Astro-Housewitchery: Nux Vomica

Nux Vomica Homeopathic Remedy

The fabulously named Nux Vomica is the homeopathic hangover remedy. It is actually (heavily diluted)  strychnine which sounds slightly bats unless you grok homeopathy. I mean my constitutional remedy is diluted snake venom; Lachesis. Which always perks me up real fast.

Okay, I am NOT a homeopath & only use the Nux for really grotty morning-afters but the Nux Vomica personality type – as you will see from the links –  is a shocker. Still, short of never doing anything over-indulgent again, Nux Vom is an essential bathroom cupboard standby. A classically trained English homeopath once told me it was stockpiled by the Royal Family.

The above link is way more thorough & scary to read, as the full-on homeopathic materia medicias tend to be. Also, I don’t know how exactly it does it but it seems to alleviate the psych0-mental symptoms of a hangover as well.

I have used Nux Vomica and thoroughly recommend it!!


Goodness me I love Finn Andrews & the Veils, what a sexy talented man. I had no idea it was a hangover remedy, thought it was some old Latin tag. I should pick some up!


I need some of this…..

I suffer so badly from hangovers & it doesn’t have to be from a huge night. I think I’m allergic to alcohol……

hey bgem, me too, what do you normally drink? if anything you drink that makes you sick maybe you are allergic (or something) otherwise ty switching to different – if i drink decent european wine i dont get (As) sick. also good spirits – nice whisky etc. light beer, altho light, keeps the pain away. of course it alwats depends nhow much you drink – but i dont throw up after 4 drinks if i stick to hte good stuff compared to awful drinks like VB or cheap bourbon (gag)
sorry bout typos in a rush. good luck


Nux vom has also saved me on the rare occasion when I get a sudden hot sort of headache – very sensitive to light, warmth, nauseous, need cold air and silence. I guess like the beginning of a migrane. Nux vom clears this up super fast.


Nux vomica is excellent as a constitutional rememdy particularly for men who are drawn to neptunian substances. Especially if they have the irritable, restless nature that goes with it and oily hair/skin. They also prefer hot sour foods.

I lurve homeopathics.
