From Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus, Joseph H. Peterson edition:
An Excellent Remedy for Apoplexy.
Take a considerable portion of linden-tree blossoms and May flowers, six ounces of fresh bay leaves, bruise in a mortar to a mush. Then take a pint of blue violet sap, in this dissolve white rock candy sugar as much as will dissolve therein; pour this over the mush and mix well in the mortar. Then strain all the juice out through a cloth; wormwood salt dissolved in a half pint is added thereto and all is to be rectified in a retort, also through an alembic distil so that no phlegm remains in the mixture. Thus an excellent spirit will be obtained, which must be kept in a glass vessel hermetically sealed.
Whoever is attacked with apoplexy may take one-half teaspoonful of this spirit dissolved in linden blossom water, or other distilled water in good wine, etc. It will certainly prove a good remedy, and secure good health for future.
The grimoire Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus lists this spell.
