"Bitter Orange Peel, in No. 20 powder, one thousand grammes [or 35 ounces av., 120 grains]. Prepare a Fluidextract by Type Process C, using a mixture of three volumes of alcohol and one volume of water as the menstruum." U. S.

This fluidextract is useful as a tonic; when dry, the bitter orange peel having very little oil present, there is necessarily little agreeable orange flavor to the fluidextract. Monroe Bond recommends a Fluidextract of Sweet Orange Peel, made with a menstruum of seven parts of alcohol and one of glycerin. (A. J. P., 1873, p. 482.)

Dose, fifteen to thirty minims (0.9-1.8 mils).
