Jealousy is an emotion; the term generally refers to the thoughts or feelings of insecurity, fear, concern, and envy over relative lack of possessions, status or something of great personal value, particularly in reference to a comparator.
Jealousy often consists of one or more of emotions such as anger, resentment, inadequacy, helplessness or disgust. In its original meaning, jealousy is distinct from envy, though the two terms have popularly become synonymous in the English language, with jealousy now also taking on the definition originally used for envy alone.
Jealousy is a typical experience in human relationships, and it has been observed in infants as young as five months. Some claim that jealousy is seen in every culture; however, others claim jealousy is a culture-specific phenomenon.
Sexual jealousy may be triggered when a person's significant other displays sexual interest in another person. The feeling of jealousy may be just as powerful if one partner suspects the other is guilty of infidelity. Fearing that their partner will experience sexual jealousy the person who has been unfaithful may lie about their actions in order to protect their partner. Experts often believe that sexual jealousy is in fact a biological imperative. It may be part of a mechanism by which humans and other animals ensure access to the best reproductive partners.
It seems that male jealousy in heterosexual relationships may be influenced by their female partner's phase in her menstrual cycle. In the period around and shortly before ovulation, males are found to display more mate-retention tactics, which are linked to jealousy. Furthermore, a male is more likely to employ mate-retention tactics if their partner shows more interest in other males, which is more likely to occur in the pre-ovulation phase.
Romantic jealousy arises as a result of romantic interest. It is defined as “a complex of thoughts, feelings, and actions that follow threats to self-esteem and/or threats to the existence or quality of the relationship when those threats are generated by the perception of a real or potential romantic attraction between one's partner and a (perhaps imaginary) rival.” Different from sexual jealousy, romantic jealousy is triggered by threats to self and relationship (rather than sexual interest in another person). Factors, such as feelings of inadequacy as a partner, sexual exclusivity, and having put relatively more effort into the relationship, are positively related to relationship jealousy in both genders.

[Note: Do not use jealousy when ENVY is the symptom. Jealousy mostly means being jealous of a partner. It is not the same as envy. With jealousy there is erotism involved. Envy is more for material things.]

Remedies in details:
APIS MELLIFICA (APIS): Jealousy with anger and desire to kill, torments others, running about, aggravation in daytime (mostly women). Jealousy between women. And jealousy with loquacity.
ARSENICUM ALBUM (ARS): Jealousy of a man towards a man. Jealousy of a woman towards a woman. Jealousy of a child towards a child.
HYOSCYAMUS (HYOS): Jealousy is a combination of attachment (or desire) and fear of loss. Any type can suffer from jealousy, but those types that are both anxious and highly sexed are most prone to severe or pathological jealousy, and these include Lachesis and Hyoscyamus in particular. Jealousy is pathological when it occurs in the absence of a likelihood of competition for, or loss of the loved one or loved thing.
In Hyoscyamus individuals feelings of jealousy can be so powerful that they totally dominate the life of the patient and her partner. The characteristic thing about the morbid jealousy of Hyoscyamus is that it tends to be accompanied by rage. A Hyoscyamus woman may appear entirely normal except when she is feeling jealous, when she is transformed into a biting, screaming, kicking maniac (Kent: 'Jealousy', 'Desires to strike'). Jealousy with grief.
IGNATIA (IGN): Effects of disappointed love, with silent grief and delicate conscientiousness; affectionate disposition, with very clear consciousness. Her problems are aggravated from jealousy.
LACHESIS (LACH): Lachesis ranks with Hyoscyamus as being the most prone to intense feelings of jealousy of all the constitutional types. The more intense a person's desire, the more liable they are to feel jealous of others who have what the desirer wants. Thus we can understand Lachesis jealousy as a natural consequence of his strong desire. Sexual jealousy is the commonest form seen in Lachesis people, since sexual desire is usually their most intense attachment. In some cases this jealousy can be totally unrealistic, and can dominate the relationship to the point where it threatens its very existence. Jealousy of a man towards a woman. Jealousy of a woman towards a man. And jealousy with loquacity
LYCOPODIUM (LYC): Head full of ideas of defiance and jealousy. Anxious dreams, jealousy.
NUXVOMICA (NUX-V): Nux-v respects strength, and if his partner is a strong woman, he will willingly share his throne with her. He will not only leave the domestic decisions to her in the main, but will also encourage her to make her mark upon the world. Many a Nux-v wife lives in her husband's shadow publicly, but some are able to match his energy and his ability, and manage to avoid losing themselves. Others fall prey to Nux-v dominating personality, and end up as his chattel.
Because Nux-v has strong appetites, and is possessive of his spoils of war, he is more prone than most to jealousy. Even though he may be unfaithful to his wife, he is liable to explode with rage if she favours another, and to punish both his wife and her other man. Emperors do not take kindly to competition when it comes to sexual love.
Injurious out of jealousy, with shameless expressions, quarrels and reproaches. Jealousy of a man towards a woman. Jealousy of a woman towards a man. Jealousy of a woman towards a woman. Jealousy of a child towards another child.
While Ignatia is indicated in men (specially women) who have tender and delicate conscience, who concentrate their emotions and are tormented incessantly by them, with alternate hilarity and tears, Nux vomica is indicated in men (specially in men) who express themselves violently, but internally they are greatly impressionable, sad, weep, groan, sob, blame, reproach, quarrel, injure, anger up to blows, stubbornness (their impatience to tolerate contrariety and contradictions), attack of jealousy with obscene words.
PHOSPHORICUM ACID (PH-AC): Chronic effects from disappointed love; hectic fever, flushing of the face, especially afternoon and night with sweating; crushing weight on vertex; uterine and ovarian complaints in consequence of the depressing emotion.
PULSATTILLA (PULS): Like Natrum and Ignatia, Pulsatilla will tend to get very jealous of other children if they are favoured by her parent. In fact, she will get jealous of anyone who takes up her parent's time, or the time of her best friend (Kent: 'Jealousy'). In her jealousy, she is apt to behave petulantly, taking her spite out on her competitor, as well as on her loved one. Thus she may break her brother's new toy if she thinks it is nicer than hers, and refuse to eat her lunch if he is the centre of attention on his birthday.
Suffering after a fit of jealousy. Jealousy of a man towards a man. Jealousy of a man towards a woman. Jealousy of a woman towards a man.
SEPIA (SEP): Jealousy of a woman against woman. Jealousy of a child towards a child.
