Xanthoxylum, or Prickly Ash, is also diaphoretic as well as stimulant, and owes much of its curative influence to this property. The warm infusion, if taken freely, and aided by external heat, warm pediluvia, etc., will act powerfully as a diaphoretic; it is principally used in torpid states of the system, and when a stimulating agent is required.
