[Dr. Sarat Chandra Ghose]

Following observations made about the years 1898-1903 :


It is an expectorant, bitter and tonic, febrifuge, and mild purgative.

It is used in bilious and obstinate remittent fever, sciatica, and rheumatism.

It is also very useful in constipation of children.

Dr. J. H. Clarke's Dictionary of Practical Materia Medica (Vol. II, Part I, pages 631-632)

"Nyctanthes is a small tree of the jasmine family, having brilliant, highly fragrant flowers, white and yellow, which expand at evening and fall off about sunrise.

During the day the plant loses all its brightness, and hence is called `The Sad Tree' (Arbor-tristis). `Nyctanthes' means 'Night-flowering.'"

[S.C. Ghose] account of the medicinal properties of this plant (Homeopathic World, XXXVI, 24).

He has used it extensively in cases of bilious and remittent fevers, rheumatism and sciatica, and the constipation of children.

It is bitter, tonic, expectorant, mild purgative. In the fever there is thirst before and during chills, and bitter vomiting at close of chill. Not much sweat.

Ghose compares it with Eup-per. He made a short proving of it.
