White Ointment.

Take of olive oil, one pint; white wax and sperma ceti, of each three ounces. Melt them with a gentle heat, and keep them constantly and briskly stirring together, till quite cold.

If two drachms of camphor, previously rubbed with a small quantity of oil, be added to the the above, it will make the White camphorated Ointment.
