"Red Rose, in No. 20 powder, one thousand grammes [or 35 ounces av., 120 grains]. Prepare a Fluidextract by Type Process B, using a mixture of one hundred mils [or 3 fluidounces, 183 minims] of glycerin, five hundred mils [or 16 fluidounces, 435 minims] of alcohol and four hundred mils [or 13 fluid-ounces, 252 minims] of water as Menstruum I, and diluted alcohol as Menstruum II."

This fluidextract is a useful adjuvant and an excellent astringent. It is of a deep red color, with the agreeable flavor of rose. Wm. C. Alpers prefers repercolation for this fluid-extract, stating that even a moderate heat imparts an unpleasant odor to the finished product. (Proc. A. Ph. A., 1897, 425.)

Dose, from one to two fluidrachms (3.75-7.5 mils).

Off. Prep.—Mel Rosae, U. S.; Syrupus Rosae, N. F.
