a bottle of chinese catharides

A bottle of Chinese Catharides, also known as Blister Beetles, so named because of the observation that if left too long on the skin it will irritate and blister it. The cantharide is very toxic and was usually applied topically in pastes and in vinegar or wine solutions to break up lumps, immobile masses and congealed blood. In short, I don't reccomend it!
