The Advantage Archives "Johnson's Liniment" Wrist Watch

Johnson & Co. touted their liniment as a treatment (or cure) for coughs, colds, grippy cold, colic, asthmatic distress, bronchial colds, nasal catarrh, cholera morbus, cramps, diarrhea, bruises, common sore throat, burns and scalds, chaps and chafing, chilblains, frost bites, muscular rheumatism, soreness, sprains and strains. 

The liniment was comprised of water, soap oils, camphor, alcohol, and disturbing amounts of ether, ammonia, and even lead. But what was the secret ingredient that made Johnson's Liniment ? Opium. 

It is no wonder why Johnson's was so popular. It really was "like no other".
