A "Health" tonic. This sort of thing was the vogue around the time of its development. Probably good for treatment of dyspepsia, chillblains, et al.threeputt said:I was browsing the Harris website a few days ago and noticed this old elixir. Does anyone have any more info on it? A curiosity, to be sure, and it has my interest up. I have NO CLUE what is in this stuff......anyone?
I find it disconcerting to think of drinking "free" ammonia.. I know there are some usage caveats at the D. R. Harris web site, but .... Arggghhhhh.. Not ammonia..threeputt said:No idea as to the ingredients? I heard a rumor that there's a bit of ammonia for "kick". Not too keen on that idea. I mean, it IS a recipe from 1850... Still, that's the attraction for me. The 1850 part, not the ammonia part
