Clove Gilliflowers

It is in vain to describe a plant so well known. It is someatimes called gilliver. They are gallant, fine, temperate flowers, yea, so temperate, that no excess, neither in heat, cold, dryness, nor moisture, can be perceived in them; they are great strengtheners both of the brain and heart, and will thereafore serve either for cordials or cephalics, as your occasion will serve. There is both a syrup and a conserve made of them.
To take now and then a little of either, strengthens nature much in such as are in consumptions. They are good in hot pestilential fevers, and expel poison. One ounce of the flowaers, in one pint of boiling water constitutes the infusion. For the syrup, flowers, 1 ounce, boiling water, 4 ounces, refined sugar, half a pound. Let the flowers infuse half-a-day; then very gently boil down to one-fourth the quantity. The vineagar of cloves is a cephalic, the smell removing headache, sickness, etcetera.
It is an excellent deodoriser for sick rooms. It is made by merely steeping one ounce of petals in a pint of best vinegar for 14 days.
