As experts in the preparation of Nerium oleander extracts, we know that not all Nerium oleander extracts are alike. Indeed, their compositions vary greatly depending upon how they are prepared. This means they will have different safety and biological activity profiles. We have analyzed the composition of some competitors’ products and found them to be inadequate. We caution against the use of competitors’ products. Oleander-4x has been tested and found to meet target quality and performance criteria. Oleander-4x is the only homeopathic product we recommend.
Minimal side effects have been observed. The proving symptoms are noted for oleander in the Materia Medica of New and Old Homeopathic Medicines, 2nd Edition.
There is a difference between the OLEANDER PLANT and the EXTRACT OF OLEANDER.
Nerium oleander is the whole plant, consisting of the stems, leaves, flowers, and roots. An extract of oleander contains naturally occurring phytochemicals (plant produced compounds) that have been removed from the structural material of the leaves of the plant. Do not ingest any parts of the oleander plant itself.
The Nerium oleander plant may be toxic to animals and humans. However, many important therapeutic compounds are derived from poisonous plants. For example, molecules such as vincristine, derived from the common periwinkle plant, are used to treat cancer. Taxol, derived from the bark of the Pacific yew tree, is another example of a well-established chemotherapeutic agent.
Indian and Chinese traditional medicinal systems have used the plant Nerium oleander and its extracts for hundreds of years in the treatment of a wide range of illness. Over the last several decades, thousands of people have safely received many different types of oleander extracts.

While we do not like using plastic in our products, we found that the plastic dropper does much better in shipping. The plastic dropper is etched to show the increments and where one ml is would be on the dropper. Why do we use etched droppers? Proposition 65 requires businesses to warn Californians before exposing them to chemicals in the consumer products they buy and use. Basically, all ink droppers would require a warning. We believe that etched droppers are safer for you and for the environment.
The bottle has a child-safety lock. You need to push down into the bottle, and while the dropper is pushed down, turn at least 1/4 turn to 1/2 a turn to release the child lock.
