It opens the Meatus of the Brain and Nerve, when subsiding by reason of Laxity, clear them out when obstructed with Phlegm, depurates the Spirits when clogg'd with Filth, rouseth them up when sluggishly stagnating, restoreth the animal Expansion. And therefore is a most desirable Remedy against Soporose and Paralytic Affects, to be given Night and Morn.
