Extract of Rose. a

Oil of Rose.....................

1/2 fl. dram.

Hundred-leaved Roses (recent)...

1 ounce.

Deodorized Alcohol.............

1 pint.

Bruise the Rose Leaves, extract by maceration in the Alcohol; follow by expression, so as to get a pint, in which dissolve the Oil, and filter.

In the absence of the recent rose leaves, dried red rose leaves may be used, or this ingredient may be omitted, adding a minute quantity of tincture of cochineal, to give a pale rose tint.

Extract of Rose. b

Oil of Rose (Kezanlick)..........

1/2 fl. dram.

Red Rose Leaves................

2 ounces.

Alcohol (Atwood's) .........................................

2 pints.

Water ..........................................................................

4 pints.

Dissolve the Oil in the Alcohol and gradually add the Water, then the Rose Leaves, and macerate for seven days and filter.

A great difference in the strength of these two formulas is observed.

Extract of Rose. c

Otto of Rose (Kezanlick).................

60 minims.

Alcohol (deodorized), and Water, of each......................

8 fl. ounces.

Solution of carmine sufficient to color. Mix and filter, if necessary.

The proportion of Otto may, of course, be varied. For a cheaper, but very good extract, half of otto of rose and half of otto of rose geranium may be used. Both should be of fine quality.
