Aqua sinapis est remedium potens et universale quod invenit, fabricavit et vendidit famosus medicus Iacobus Sinapius (1575-1622).

Haec medicina curavit imperatorem Romanorum Rudolphum II.

Eius fabrica[recensere | fontem recensere]

Contra id quod verbum videtur dicere, non est ulla pars sinapis in hoc remedio, hoc enim verbum ad nomen Sinapii alludit.

Haec aqua non multum differebat ab hoc odoramento cui nomen "Aqua Coloniensis"[1] quod in initio potus erat.

  1. Transactions of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia, 1921, p. 422 : "He (Sinapius) invented a prototype of eau de cologne, calling it aqua sinapis, which was used as a universal remedy. The aqua sinapis brought him such wealth that he was able to and did lend the Emperor enormous sums of money".
