Lavandula Vera. (Lavender.)
Lavender is the child's stimulant, and nothing, so far as I am aware, exercises so kindly an influence upon the digestive apparatus and the nervous system. A tincture may be formed of Oil of Lavender, ℥ij.; Dilute Alcohol, Oj. But the Compound Spirit will probably answer the needs of most physicians. I would like to test a tincture of the fresh herb, and if any of our readers are so located as to grow it, and prepare such tincture, we will be obliged if they will report.
