Aconitum has a long history of use as a poison. During the ancient Roman period of European history the plant was often used to eliminate criminals and enemies, Later the Roman government made the use of the herb illegal and punished citizens who grew it.

Aconitum produced from the roots of a number of different species of Aconitum is used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat "coldness", general debility, and "Yang deficiency." Misuse of the medicinal ingredients contained in this plant can negatively affect the cardiovascular and central nervous systems, thus resulting in death.

Homeopathy dilutes aconite so that it is not poisonous.  These medicines are typically diluted in alcohol and water.   After the dilutions, there is hardly in poison left in most of the medicine.

Aconite's primary usage in homeopathy is as a fever reducer and treatment of flu and pneumonia.  This medicine has a cooling effect on body which helps to relieve conditions such as fevers and colds.
