4. Hunyadi water
A purgatory spa water named after Janos Hunyadi (1387-1456), Hungarian warrior general.
Perhaps camphor, an extract of the wood of the camphor tree. It was used in medicine for liniments and the treatment of colds.
Oil or spirit of turpentine was used in medicine as an expectorant.
