of Thousand Flowers
A PERFUMED BREATH.—What
lady or gentleman would remain under the curse of a disagreeable breath, when
using the "Balm of a Thousand Flowers" as a dentifrice, would not only render it
sweet, but leave the teeth white as alabaster? Many persons do not know their
breath is bad, and the subject is so delicate, their friends will never mention
it. Four a single drop of the "Balm" on your tooth-brush, and wash the teeth
night and morning. A fifty cent bottle will last a year.
A BEAUTIFUL COMPLEXION may easily
be acquired by using the "Balm of a Thousand Flowers." It will remove Tan,
Pimples, and Freckles from the Skin, leaving it of a soft and roseate hue. Wet a
towel, pour on two or three drops, and wash the face night and morning.
SHAVING MADE EASY—Wet your
shaving-brush in either warm or cold water, pour on two or three drops of "Bahia
of a Thousand Flowers," rub the beard well, and it will make a beautiful soft
lather, much facilitating the operation of shaving. For sale by all Druggists.
