I travel regular to states and canada and never declare homeopathic remedies. They arent a drug so need to declare it.

Mamadadawahwah, thank you so much for replying. i will be taking them in my hand luggage, so if anyone wants to check that, it is obviously fine with me, i just didn't know what to do when we arrived at customs etc. do they ask if we have anything to declare, and if so do i just go on my merry way?

Just hop along bunny, you dont have to declare homeopathic remedies. Its like declaring pepper or salt. Obviously, if you are bringing in cartloads of the stuff, they will wonder what you are doing and make you pay tax on it or something, but if its just remedies for your personal use, you dont need to declare that. They arent fda registered, they arent a drug and in the estimation of most american doctors, are simply a placebo and dont work!! We of course, know differently.
