To make Pomatum for beautifying the Face.

TAKE a handful of oats, and stick them in the fat of a bacon hog, newly killed, without any salt; let it melt before a slow fire, and when it is quite dissolved, put to the dripping a spoonful of the oil of cinnamon, with the same quantity of the oil of sweet almonds; when you have mixed all these together, let it be laid up, and it will make a most excellent pomatum.
