FONTAINE'S BALM OF THOUSAND FLOWERS, For the Toilet, Nursery, Bathing, and many medicinal purposes ; highly perfumed by its own ingredients, recommended by the Faculty of three different states ; and established under the patronage of many Physicians and Nurses in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and other cities, who make use of it daily and exclusively in their families and nurseries. It is the greatest luxury a fashionable lady or gentleman could wish for the improvement of health, comfort and personal embellishment. Its delicate soothing sensations, the de- lightful softness it imparts to the complexion, and its never-failing sanative properties, may be experienced by actual trial, so that no one need hazard any thing in purchasing, or class our assertions with those respecting the thousand and one nostrums of the day. We give a few of the most prominent properties of the Balm of Thousand Flowers, already established by actual experience : — lst, This Balm eradicates every defect of the Complexion, and establishes in its stead beauty and health, at the time when both, by the changes and freaks of age, nature or disease, have been obscured and undermined. It cleanses the skin, and draws from the inner cuticle to the surface all impurities and every species of Pimples and Blotches, leaving a pure, renovated skin beneath, produced at the expense only of a jrcntle prickling sensation, a change which no other means can effect; also removes tan, sunburn, sallowness. freckles, chopping of the eperdermis, chilblains, &c. It shades with time the impress of scars and Small Fox marks ; imparts to the skin a re- semblance of its original puritv, and an unsurpassed freshness, rendering it clear, smooth, white and expanded, so that the wrinkles and roughness of the face, neck, arms hands, &c. will actually be modified and to a great extent disappear, imparting a youthful bloom. 2 It promotes the growth and increase of the Hair, prevents its falling off. gives to it richness and a glossy firmness : it cleanses the head from dandruff and all impurities, giving vigor, health and life to the very roots of the hair. We are so positive of its efficacy, that if a price is agreed upon between the proprietor and purchaser, we will warrant our assertions under the penalty of $50 forfeiture. This pledge, though apparently hazardous and presumptuous, must, nevertheless, prove very lucrative to our interests, and to the purchaser an undisputed evidence of the certain benefits of #iis Balm. It has been ascer- tained that of one hundred individuals thus treated, ninety of them have obtained the desired object even bevond their anticipations ; and the partial disappointment of the re- maining number has been equally rewarded by the delightful soothing virtues and healing effects ft produced, which have far exceeded the representations of the discoverer. 3 It is a most useful article for Shaving, superior to all descriptions of feoaps, Creams, Pastes &c It o-ives a rich, penetrating lather, and has no equal in rendering the beard soft, emolient and tender : so that, in removing it, it gives way at the slightest resistance to the. razor without producing the least sensation, leaving a fresh, white, and delicate countenance. 4 As a dentifrice for cleansing the Teeth, it is by far the most medicinal of any com- pound yet known, preventing their decay, removing pain, ulcers and cankers, and renders the teeth as white as alabaster. # . 5 For the Nursery and for Bathing, for the suffering infant and adult, to promote sweet- ness of body, cleanliness, health and strength, and to prevent disease, eruptions &c. there is no article more suitable. It may be used in cold, warm, hard, soft, or even salt water. Price Fifty cents per Bottle, and One Dollar. GENERAL AGENCY AND DEPOT, WHOLESALE AND RETAIL, . HOTCHKISS & CO., 13 Court Street, Boston.
