AN OLD ROMAN RECEIPT FOR IMPROVING THE SKIN.
Boil a dessert spoonful of the best wheaten flour with half a pint of
fresh asses milk; when boiling, stir in a table-spoonful of the best
honey, and a tea-spoonful of rose water, then mix smoothly, place in
small pots, and use a little of it after washing; it is better not to
make much at a time, as when stale it is liable to irritate the skin.
