To make fine liquid Snuff for the Brain.
Take eight drops of oil of lavender, and the same quantity of mace, six drops of marjoram, two pounds of rosemary flowers, and let the whole be steeped three days in a pint of benjamin water; keep it closed up, and when you are seized with a weakness in the brain, or find the approach of dizziness or other fits, hold your nose to the vessel, and you will, in less than a minute, find yourself perfectly well.
