Dissolve the balsam of tolu in the alcohol, and add the solution to the distilled water at a temperature of 70°; shake vigorously, set aside for twenty-four hours, and filter. This preparation is liable to deposit crystals in cold weather, but they will dissolve in the liquid if the bottle containing it be removed to a warm place. It is used to prepare a syrup of tolu which is more aromatic than the official Syrupus Tolutanus, one volume of the solution being diluted with seven volumes of syrup.
