"Bruise fresh Broom Tops; press out the juice; to every three volumes of juice add one volume of Alcohol (90 per cent.); set aside for seven days; filter." Br.

In large doses this juice is prone to disturb the stomach and bowels. It is more appropriately used as an adjuvant to other diuretics than alone.
