To make a Water for giving the Countenance a most beau-blooming Colour.

Distil four ounces of honey, in five pints of vinegar; while it is over the fire, put to it an ounce of red sanders, then let it be set to cool and bottled up. Let the face be washed clean before you use it, then take a little in a cup, and when you have dipped a fine linen cloth in it, rub your face gently, and it will have a beautiful blooming colour.
