Salicin suspended in water becomes salicylic acid. However, "Aspirin" as we know it has been synthetically produced since 1897 by Bayer. It was introduced a year prior to Bayer's introduction of "Heroin" in 1898. The "Aspirin" product remains a big seller to this date.
Is there a book or site with info of this sort I wonder? All these old remedies for this and that, I would love to find it all in a collection. Sad to think this once common knowledge is nearly lost to us.
