Cina is the homeopathic name of a plant known as Artemisia pauciflora, and from which Santonin is derived. A tincture is made and is employed in intestinal irritations and a whole chain of symptoms referable to worms. They use the low attenuations and the tincture, and, when necessary, the Ix trituration of santonin. Their tincture is quite effective if sufficient dose is administered. The older homeopaths used high dilutions of "Cina" for nervous and irritable children. See Santonin.
