Dr. Herman Luyties started Luyties Pharmacal Co. in 1853 based in St. Louis. The company specializes in homeopathic drugs, based on the principle of "like cures like".
Chionanthus Virginica, commonly known as the Fringe Tree, is commonly found in the American South, principally Georgia and Tennessee. It is a white flowering tree, the name coming from the Greek words for snow (chion) and flower (anthus). It was originally used for fevers, but became used more for jaundice and similar problems as more effective fever remedies took its place. The part of the tree used in medicine is the inner bark of the root.
