Research Facts
Used to facilitate expectoration in chronic bronchitis.
The ingredients of Sir John Hill's Pectoral Balsam of Honey were balsam of tolu (a plant resin), opium, honey and spirit of wine. Hill, who had a genuine medical degree, started producing patent remedies around the 1760s when the expense of publishing his writing began to take its toll, and the ploy worked, earning him a considerable fortune. Promotional information include: "the unequalled efficacy and safety of this elegant Medicine in the immediate relief, and gradual cure, of Coughs, Colds, Sore Throats, Hoarseness,Difficulty of Breathing, Catarrhs, Asthma, and Consumptions"
