Belladonna Ointment


Belladonna ointment is an oil and wax-based topical medication of Atropa belladonna for the temporary relief of pain and inflammation.

The use of belladonna for its pain relieving, anti-inflammatory, and sedative properties has been documented since antiquity by the likes of Roman naturalist Pliny the Elder, Greek physician Pedanius Dioscorides, and Renaissance physician Paracelsus. Its long historical medicinal reputation was scientifically validated with the discovery of atropine and its effects in 1831. Belladonna is known for its high atropine content and atropine has since become an essential medicine in modern healthcare.
