Lobelia Precautions

Due to the potential toxicity of the active constituent lobeline, THIS HERB IS NOT SOLD FOR INTERNAL USE IN AUSTRALIA. In high doses, lobelia can induce vomiting, and this effect was even used by the North American eclectics as a means to cleansing the body. (Lobelia is still used internally in other countries as a low dose botanical, usually under the guidance of a herbalist or naturopath).
