Victorian Cold Remedies

Well after spending a cold night at a Whovian event I find myself with the sniffles which made me wonder. If I were in the Victorian era what remedies would be available.Well there are some good and some bad and some very bad ideas. Here are the bad.

Bayer Heroin Cough Suppressant 

Opium Vapor Oil Treatment
(It's like vapo-rub in a vaporizer but addictive.)

Vin Mariani Tonic Wine
Sounds harmless but contains cocaine, that's healthy right?

Dr. Seth Arnold's Cough Killer
The Morphine may or may not kill your cough, either way you won't care. 

Feeling better about the Nyquil. :)
