To make fee red Pomatum for the Lips.
Take an ounce of bullock's marrow, the same quantity of fine white wax, and melt both together with three ounces of pomatum, put to it a dram of alkanet, and let it stand in an earthen vessel over the fire till it has acquired a fine redish [sic] colour, take it off to cool, rub the lips with it, and they will appear of a fine blooming colour.
