Cache-Control: public, max-age=1024000 Pharmacopoeia Extemporanea: 1. A Fume in a Catarrh

1. A Fume in a Catarrh.

Take Olibanum, Amber, Benjamin, Storax calamite, Gum of Guaiacum, Balsam of Tolu, each 2 scruples; reduce all into a course Powder to sprinkle upon live Coals for a Smoak.

If the Catarrh have brought on an Asthma, Fumes are to be avoided, for fear of Suffocation. I knew one strangled thus, almost to Death.
