Lycopodium clavatum - wolfsclaw club moss - spores

From Lycopodium clavatum, wolf's claw club moss. The homeopathic remedy is made from the powdery spores, which have the property of floating on water and flaring up when sprinkled on a naked flame.

Constitutional Indications
The Lycopodium type usually has a handshake which is so firm that it hurts, and a haughty, unfriendly air; other characteristics are leanness, a stooping posture and an unhealthily sallow skin, often with many lines and wrinkles. Such people tend to gravitate towards politics, teaching, the law and the priesthood.
