is there a way to find out how much of a particular herb was put into how much water at the beginning based on the designation (eg. 12x, 7x)? TIA!

For the X potencies, one drop of mother tincture (the original substance) is used and 9 drops of alcohol/water solution. After it's succussed, that's a 1X. To make a 2X, one drop is taken out of the 1X and mixed with 9 drops of alcohol/water solution and succussed again.

This process is repeated until you reach the potency you are looking for.

If you were talking about C potencies, the ratio is one drop mother tincture to 99 drops alcohol/water solution.

There are very strict controls over the making of remedies, so the amount is always the same.

Is that what you were looking for?
