Mercurius Solubilis / Merc Sol / Merc-c

Formal Name: Mer Sol, Mercurius Solubilis Hahnemanni

Also Known As: Merc Sol, Quicksilver, Mercury, Black Oxide of Mercury, Ammonio—Nitrate of Mercury

When we hear the word “mercury” many of us automatically assume that it’s bad. Though high levels of it can be toxic to humans, it has also had some fantastic healing properties that have been used through the years.

It was used in mainstream medicine until it was found, in its natural form, to have adverse side effects. Since homeopathy dilutes to the point that not a molecule remains, it is safe and we can reap all of the healing benefits. Mercury was found to have very specific properties within homeopathy, and out of that discovery came the homeopathic remedy of merc sol.

As you might imagine, merc sol is prepared very carefully and specifically to ensure that there are no traces remaining of the mineral in the final remedy.

Merc sol is prepared by taking mercury and dissolving it in nitric acid. This forms a gray powder precipitate and it is then filtered, dried, and triturated until made soluble. This careful preparation forms the homeopathic remedy of merc sol that so many of us have come to rely upon.

Homeopathic Remedies using Merc Sol:

Benefits/Uses of Merc Sol:

Mouth and Throat Conditions:

Merc sol can be of great help when there are ulcers on the tongue, walls of the mouth, and the gums. These raised patches become sore and inflamed, and they often indicate oral thrush. There may be a sore throat present as well and this can become overcome with ulcers. This homeopathic remedy helps with the pain and also assists the body in naturally healing the ulcers overall.

Catarrh and Colds:

When there is watery and yellow or green catarrh that has a strong odor, merc sol can be of great help. It can also aid in healing the other symptoms such as chills, fever, sneezing fits, and headaches.

Eye and Ear Infections:

This often shows up as a sensitivity to light and watery or inflamed eyes that have a terrible discharge flowing from them. Merc sol can help the body naturally heal and resolve the ear pain as well as the discharge itself.


Merc sol can be turned to when the temperature gets high in the body and there is excessive sweating as a result of it. The fever may also be associated with glandular pain and a terrible headache as well.


This usually shows up as itchy and burning vaginal discharge in women, or as itchy red spots in men that appear on the penis.

Homeopathic Remedy Profile for Merc Sol:

Merc sol is a homeopathic remedy that happens to be well suited to those who are anxious and restless in nature. They have a need for stability and order, and this has them coming across as conservative. They tend to have a sense of urgency in nearly everything that they do and this can make them feel insecure and rather introverted at times. They tend to be rather suspicious in nature and keep their feelings bottled up for the most part.
