A cure for cracked lips in the winter

Thumbnail of A cure for cracked lips in the winter recipe

Any chemist will prepare for you a salve made of equal parts of tincture of red roses, the mucilage of quince-seeds, and virgin wax; indeed, you may easily prepare this salve for yourself, by placing the above ingredients in a clean gallipot covered with a lid and placed in a small stewpan containing hot water nearly reaching halfway up the side of the gallipot, and allowed to simmer by the side of the fire for ten minutes, by which time the wax being dissolved, the whole should be well stirred together, and when cold, applied to the lips with the tip of the finger.
