New York Bottle with Label NICE I did a little research, and found this review of the product in the November 1923 West Virginia Medical Journal, as taken from the Sept. 1923 JAMA: El Zair. — This is quackery’s latest offer of an elixir of life. The nostrum is brought to the attention of the public by El Zair, Inc., New York. The firm claims that the elixir of youth has at last been found. Much is made of the endorsement which the late W. T. Stead is stated to have given the nostrum. El Zair is to be dissolved in water and applied by sponging the body with it daily. The A. M. A. Chemical Laboratory analyzed El Zair and reported that essentially it may be considered to consist of one part of glacial acetic acid and three parts of magnesium sulphate (Epsom salt) perfumed with oil of bergamot. The contents of a bottle of El Zair are to be dissolved in a pint of water and, therefore, an etisentially similar solution can be made by dissolving 2 1-2 ounces of Epsom salt in a pint of distilled vinegar. (Jour. A. M. A., Sept. 1. 1923, p. 76S.) A quite scarce corked bottle of the stuff, with some still inside. Height is about 4-1/4 inches, bottle diameter almost 2 inches. Condition is good as shown (some bubbles in the glass, not damages) 190923 / 1035 R9/24/2019 AUS Additional purchases will be combined if bought same day, for one low shipping rate.
