But seriously... do they work? I read that there were some tests that showed the water used on them doesn't even have one molecule of the "remedy" in it, after all the dilutions... would love to hear thoughts. I am trying some now, but very skeptical.

As far as I know, all the high quality studies have consistently failed to find any evidence that homeopathy works any better than a placebo. The benefits people find are generally either that placebo effect, or a coincidence in that they naturally got better and would have done so without taking anything! While it generally won't do any harm (as it is literally just water!), it can do harm when people fail to get proper medical treatment, or when homeopathic practitioners claim it can do things like act as a vaccination, or cure HIV
