Thumbnail of Linseed-Tea recipe

To half an ounce of linseed put into a jug, pour a pint of boiling water, allow the infusion to stand for half an hour, and then decanter off the tea into another jug; sweeten with honey, and flavour with a few drops of orange-flower water; but it must be understood that in a general way it is best to drink this tea in its natural state.

The mucilaginous, emollient, soothing, aperitive, and diuretic qualities of linseed, when administered as a drink, whether fasting or otherwise, render its use both safe and efficacious in all cases when the object is to afford alleviation to the sufferings of the gouty, asthmatical, &c.
