Preparation.—"Stronger orange flower water, distilled water, of each, 1 volume. Mix them immediately before use"—(U. S. P.).
Action, Medical Uses, and Dosage.—This water is employed chiefly as a delicately perfumed vehicle for other substances. As a medicine, it has little to recommend it, though it has been administered in cardiac palpitations, and headaches of a neuralgic character in nervous females. It has likewise been employed in various hysteroidal affections.
