The White Swelling (Spell)

From The Long Lost Friend:

The White Swelling

Take a quart of unslacked lime, and pour two parts of water on it; stir it well and let it stand over night. The scum that collects on the lime-water must be taken off, and a pint of flax-seed oil poured in, after which it must be stirred until it becomes somewhat consistent . then put it in a pot or pan, and add a little lard and wax; melt it well, and make a plaster, and apply it to the parts affected-the plaster should be renewed every day, or at least every other day, until the swelling is gone.

The grimoire The Long Lost Friend lists this spell.
