Oil of sweet almonds, 4 ounces,

White wax, 6 drams,

Spermaceti, 6 drams,

Borax, 2 drams,

Glycerin,1 1/2 ounces,

Oil of neroli, 15 drops,

Oil of orange-skin (bigarde), 15 drops.

Melt the sweet almond, wax, and spermaceti, and add to it the orange-flower water. Dissolve the borax in the mixture, and then pour it slowly into the blended fats, stirring continuously. This is a good "food for the skin."
