It is used also for a wide range of medicinal purposes, including use as an antiseptic (preventing infections), diuretic (increasing flow of urine), sedative, tonic, emollient (skin care) and expectorant (increasing coughing). Atoms are colour-coded: carbon (grey), hydrogen (white) and oxygen (red).
