Toddalia. Toddalia aculeata.

Botanical name:

Toddalia. Br. Add. 1900.—"The dried root-bark of Toddalia aculeata Lam." (Fam. Rutaceae.) This climbing shrub, known also as Lopez root, growing in East Africa, Madagascar, the subtropical Himalayas, Ceylon, and the Philippines, is a tonic stomachic, containing a resin and a volatile oil, which may be readily obtained from the leaves by distillation. This oil has the odor of citron peel, and a bitter, aromatic taste. See also Schim. Rep., 1906, 82, and 1912, 121. The British Addendum recognized an infusion (Infusum Toddaliae, two ounces to a pint), dose, one to two fluidounces (30-60 mils); also a concentrated solution (Liquor Toddaliae Concentratus, Br. Add., 1900), dose, from one-half to one fluidrachm (1.8-3.75 mils).


The Dispensatory of the United States of America, 1918, was edited by Joseph P. Remington, Horatio C. Wood and others.
