The sweet Essence of Vitriol, whereby many wonderful cures may be wrought, is only prepared out of its Sulphur, which burneth like other Brimstone. .....Take now this Sulphur and sublime it by itself without any addition and there will remain some feces, which separate and put away. ....Thus the excellent sweet Essence of the Sulphur of Vitriol goeth into the Spirit of Wine and swimmeth upon the top, etc.


Vitriol is a treasure, created with care. Use pleasingly.
