It is an alkaline saline solution that includes a mix of menthol, camphor, eucalyptol, thymol, benzoin, and oils of wintergreen, spearmint, pine, and cinnamon, as well as potassium and sodium salts. First formulated by James P. Whitters in 1896 in a small laboratory above the A.J. Barker pharmacy in Taunton, Massachusetts, Alkalol is one of the oldest over-the-counter pharmaceutical products sold in the United States.
