- egg white
- powdered sugar
- Lavender oil
These sweet Lavender pastilles were once most fashionable among ladies as a breath freshener after indulging in a little wine. A few drops of essential oil of Lavender were added to well sieved powdered sugar and mixed thoroughly. It was then bound with sufficient lightly beaten egg white to form a stiff paste, and small portions shaped into lozenge shaped pastilles. These were then set aside to dry and harden in a warm place.
While these pastilles were an emergency social measure, a mouthwash made from an infusion of Sage leaves was much favored for everyday use, as was Sage toothpaste.
