ELDER FLOWER OIL FOR THE HAIR.

Taken from Godey's Ladies Book 1855

-Take of the best almond or olive oil, one pound; elder flowers (free from stalk), two ounces; place the flowers in the oil in a jar or wide-mouthed bottle; let them remain forty eight hours; then strain. The oil must now stand in a quiet and cool place at least a month, in order to clear itself. The bright part being poured off, is fit for use. If considered too strong, plain oil may be added.
