Research Facts
A. B. S. & C. stands for Aloin, Belladonna, Strychnine and Cascara; despite poisonous ingredients and the designation of poison on the label, these pills were often used to treat habitual constipation.
C. E. Jamieson & Co. Limited was the name of the company from 1944 until it became Jamieson Laboratories Ltd. in 1998.
The D in diamond symbol embossed on the bottom indicates the bottle itself was made by Canadian glass manufacturer Dominion Glass Company in Hamilton, Ontario.

Research Facts
A Native American medicinal staple, the bark of wild cherry is used for its medicinal properties; it is most commonly used to treat symptoms of respiratory ailments, such as colds and bronchitis; its sedative, drying, and expectorant properties make it a common ingredient in cough syrups; also used to treat pain and digestive disorders. Cherry bark is great at combating dry and irritable coughs. Overuse of cherry bark can be toxic.
Ginger is an all-around herb and a warming herb that has been shown to reduce inflammation, increase circulation, boost your immunities, and even help to relieve coughs and sore throats.

Research Facts
The main ingredient in wintergreen oil is methyl salicylate, closely related to acetylsalicylic acid, better known as aspirin.
One milliliter or 20 drops of wintergreen oil is akin to taking almost six regular strength aspirin pills (1860 mg)
Wintergreen oil is made by soaking wintergreen herbs in water and steam processing them.
Wintergreen oil is sometimes used topically as a counterirritant to help relieve muscle pain; it is also used to flavour candy, tea, foods, and pharmaceutical products.
Ontario Hospital Kingston gained this name in 1920; before it was Rockwood Hospital. In 1965 the name changed again to Kingston Psychiatric Hospital. Since 2001, it has become part of the Providence Care Centre.
