These are tobacco, pellitory of Spain, angelica root, zedoary, galangals, myrrh, being held in the mouth, or chew'd. They are very proper when in danger of catching a dis-ease, by visiting an infected person or otherwise. In which case, smoaking tobacco is likewise good. The decoctions in wine, or infusions in brandy, of pellitory, cloves, marjoram, or angelica, are good for the tongue, mouth, teeth, and gums; as also in hardness of hearing, and noise in the ears. They are likewise good in a relaxation of the uvula, loss of voice, and palsy of the tongue, with the addition of a little sal ammoniac, or spirit of the same.
