Fluid extract of yerba santa, 2 fluidounces.

Fluid extract of sweet orange peel, 1/2 fluidounce.

Fluid extract of cinnamon, 1/2 fluidounce.

Fluid extract of cloves, 1/4 fluidounce.

Simple elixir, 14 fluidounces.

Red saunders, 10 grains.

Carbonate of magnesium, a sufficient quantity.

Mix the fluid extracts, add the red saunders, and triturate in a capacious mortar with sufficient carbonate of magnesium to form a creamy mixture, then gradually add the simple elixir, stirring well, and filter. This preparation is used for disguising the taste of quinine. (See our remarks under elixir of yerba santa.)
