Somehow, while a tailor in Trenton, N.J., he was helped by a concoction of Chamomile, worm-wood, catnip, essence of tansy, hyssop, hops, hoarhound, comfrey, senega, gum Arabic, licorice, elecampane, Indian turnip, lemon juice, brandy, and water. In 1836, he named it Pulmonic Syrup, and began to produce it. Among the conditions that it was recommended for was “clergyman's sore throat”, a terror to ministers, attorneys, and other people who talked too much. He stirred up a barrel of Seaweed Tonic with 19.5% alcohol, and soon he was on his way to a “fortune”. Schenck's “palace of marble” was constructed at No. 15 North Sixth Street in Philadelphia.  Schenck’s Seaweed Tonic and Mandrake Pills were also promoted as remedies for dyspepsia and liver complaints.
