A Powder for the Worms

College : Take of Wormseed, four ounces, Sena, one ounce, Coriander seeds prepared, Hart's-horn, of each half a dram, Rhubarb half an ounce, dried Rue, two drams, beat them into powder.

Culpeper : I like this powder very well; the quantity (or to write more scholastically, the dose) must be regulated according to the age of the patient, even from ten grains to a dram, and the manner of taking it by their palate. It is something purging.

  By PanEris using Melati.
