1. An Odiferous Fume.

Take Benjamin 1 ounce; Storax calamite half an ounce; Labdanum 2 drams, Musk, Ambergrise, each 1 grain and half; with mucilage of Gum Tragacanth, make Troches; of which and dust of Willow coals being added, odiferous Candles may be made.

Some things (saith Zwelfer) that are sweet enough themselves, strew'd upon Coals yeild a stink. So Cinnamon, CLoves, Coriander and Nigella seed, Roses, yea and Musk it self, if thrown upon a hot Fire, and burnt quick, are wont to give but an ill Scent.
