Sourcing Chinchona Bark for Homemade Tonic

SyntaxPC | Jul 9, 2008 06:54 AM

Has anyone here ever made their own tonic? I'm interested in trying, but I don't know where to buy the chinchona bark (it's the ingredient that gives tonic its quinine). There are a couple Internet retailers, like Zooscape, but I am not sure of their reputability. Is this the type of thing that one might easily find in a herbal medicine shop? Perhaps one in the Philadelphia area?
