There are multiple sellers on ebay trying to sell Amyl Nitrite Homeopathy.
For example https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/383992672497?hash=item5967bf30f1:g:KIAAAOSw3WZgPZ04
(It's called Amyl Nitrosum in the title but if you read the description it's supposedly Amyl Nitrite).
Obviously all homeopathy is useless and superstitious for the ignorant. I'm sad people actually pay decent money for a bottle of water. It's sad really.

Except this is not nice. Because now someone might think that alkyl nitrites are safe to drink. Even poppers is so strong that drinking kills.

Quackery is nothing new, Sir. Daffy's Elixir was said to be a panacea for all maladies, it was not! "The Real Daffy's" then made claim to be the original, and was subsequently followed by others with even greater hyperbole in their pamphlets. The similarity with the poppers is not lost on the informed observer.
Students of quackery might note: such elixirs and potions were all basically the same; they contained powerful doses of laxatives. Constipation in the 17th and 18th Century was more prevalent than it is today, and "straining at stool" was a daily ordeal endured by many.
