Half a pint of rosewater; four ounces of oil of almonds; three drachms of white wax; three drachms of spermaceti.
Melt the white wax and spermaceti together with the oil of almonds. Then beat them all up, adding the rosewater slowly until it is cold. Put it in a pot, and pour some rosewater on the top.
