Seidlitz Water

Seidlitz Water, the product of certain saline springs in Seidlitz or Sedlitz, a village of Bohemia near Bilin, used as an agreeable and effective aperient. The solid contents in a wine pint, according to Bergman, are 1928 grains, consisting of sulphate of magnesia, 180 grains; sulphate of lime, 5; chloride of magnesium, 4.5; carbonate of magnesia, 2.5; carbonate of lime, 0.8. To prepare an artificial Seidlitz water, dissolve from 3/4 to 1 1/2 oz. of sulphate of magnesia in three times its weight of water, and, after filtering, introduce it into a bottle, to be filled with water charged with carbonic acid gas.
