Carbonate of magnesium, a sufficient quantity.

Mix the fluid extracts and evaporate them to one-half of their bulk, at a temperature not exceeding 150 F. Triturate the remaining liquid in a capacious mortar with carbonate of magnesium in amount sufficient to form a creamy mixture, then gradually add the simple elixir, stirring well, and filter. Lastly, mix the filtrate with the alcohol. The ingredients for this elixir were named in the Druggists' Circular, 1879.

The National Formulary presents a process for making this preparation in which the crude drugs are percolated and the elixir prepared from the percolate.
