Prepare by the repercolation process.

A product closely resembling infusion of quassia is obtained by diluting 1 part of this preparation with 7 parts of distilled water. Though the quantity of quassia wood used in preparing the concentrated infusion is less in proportion, the bitterness of the diluted preparation is equal to that of the simple infusion, owing to complete exhaustion of the drug.

Dose.—2 to 4 mils (½ to 1 fluid drachm).
