To Make Pomade for the Hair


  • 1/4 pound of lard
  • 2 pennyworth of castor-oil
  • scent


Let the lard be unsalted; beat it up well; then add the castor-oil, and mix thoroughly together with a knife, adding a few drops of any scent that may be preferred. Put the pomatum into pots, which keep well covered to prevent it turning rancid.
