To make an oil for the Face.
Mix the flowers of beans, water lillies and roses, in a pint and a half of new cream. Put them in an earthen pot, over a slow fire, and let it boil about ten minutes, take off the finest of the oil that rises up, set it to cool in the air and then bottle it up for use. It is an excellent composition for cleansing the face at any time.
