Page 44 - Birckenstock's opinion of sufficient importance to take the particular properties of these oils into account. They have a very fine bouquet, but no 'body'.
Page 44 - ... which behave entirely like mixtures of lavender oil and spike oil. Birckenstock has in the course of his observations examined a whole series of oils, from typical lavender oil to typical spike oil. He then found at the same time that towards lavender oil not only the ester-content and alcohol-content increase, but that also a gradual change takes place in the proportion of borneol to linalool and geraniol; whereas in spike oil borneol predominates, it diminishes towards lavender oil more and...

The influence of cross-fertilisation also shows itself in the properties of the essential oils, which behave entirely like mixtures of lavender oil and spike oil.

Peucedanum Oil. — The root of Peucedanum officinale and the fruit of Peucedanum grande yield small quantities i of oil, both of specific gravity about '900 and optical rotation + 30 to + 35 or thereabouts.
Page 106 - Immediately after the occurrence of the first inflorescences, the oil contained in these also shows a lower solubility than the oil of the leaves. The ester-content is largest in the roots, and smaller in the stalks, inflorescences and leaves. The content of free thujyl alcohol does not differ largely in the various organs of the plant. Thujone is chiefly present in the leaves, and only traces of it are found in the stalks.
Page 89 - ... revision of the pharmacopoeia. They point out that practically all of the errors that appeared in the preliminary publication of the monographs on the essential oils of the Ph. Belg., in 1903, have been eliminated from the completed descriptions.

The oil has a bright brown colour and shows, especially in alcoholic solution, a very feeble blueish fluorescence, which may possibly be due to the presence of anthranilic acid ester.
Page 7 - Schimmel & Co., in discussing the Food and Drugs Law, June 30, 1906, say : This kind of legislation is surely in the right direction, and it is to be hoped that said law will be rigidly enforced. The standard for raw materials entering into food products, drugs, and medicines to be Imported into the US will surely be raised to a preeminent degree, and it is to be expected that the employment of pure essential oil and related articles which we have advocated in these reports for so many years will...
