The mentholated salve, also known as 'Tholene,' was prepared in the late 1800s by the same druggist, G.F. Smith, who perfected Rosebud Salve. The mentholated salve is a cooling salve designed to soothe minor skin irritations, especially those associated with colds, allergies, minor burns, and insects stings. (G.F.'s youngest daughter, Millie, always said that father insisted this was the best relief for the sore-red-dry-itchy nose caused by a cold). Design Note for those interested in product history: in 2008, the Rosebud Perfume Company dusted off the tin's first design and replaced the 1960s version with one closer to the original.
