This is the reverse of the leaflet.

During the 19th century there was an enormous increase in the number of medicines available to buy in chemists and pharmacists stores. Before this time home remedies were popular and mixtures and potions were made from easily available ingredients like plant leaves, vegetables like carrots and onions and oils. Over the counter drugs and potions became cheaper and more widely available after the 1860s and mixtures like the Balm of Bethesda, which is advertised on this leaflet, were popular.
