To make a Perfume for taking away all Sorts of disagreeable Smells.
Take an ounce of the oil of turpentine, half an ounce of wood of sassafras, one dram of sulphur, and an ounce of frankincense, with the same quantity of cedar wood; when you have rasped the wood small, let the whole be mixed up properly into balls, and when you smell any thing disagreeable in your chamber, burn one of them, and that will remove it.
