"Aromatic Powder (see PULVIS AROMATICUS), one thousand grammes [or 35 ounces av., 120 grains]. Prepare a Fluidextract by Type Process C, using alcohol as the menstruum." U. S.

This is a valuable fluidextract; it is an excellent aromatic in concentrated form, and will be found very useful not only as an addition to liquids when an aromatic is desired, but its concentrated form permits its use in small quantities with dry powders, like pepsin, bismuth subnitrate, etc., when desired for administration. It is rarely used alone.

Dose, from ten to twenty minims (0.6-1.3 mils), diluted with water, or dropped on sugar.
