Deadly nightshade is another name given to belladonna. It is a highly toxic plant which grows wild across Europe. Its name means "beautiful woman" in Italian. Ladies of Italy used to dilate their pupils with belladonna eye drops for a doe-eyed look.

The symptoms from belladonna poisoning include a dry mouth and hot, flushed skin, nausea, convulsions, and delirium.

Homoeopaths prescribe Belladonna for illnesses that have similar symptoms. All parts of the belladonna plant are used in the Homoeopathic remedy. The plant is crushed and pressed with the juice mixed with alcohol to dilute it.
