Electuary of 'Ud Qimâri. Take half an ûqiya of it, and of mastic, cinnamon, Chinese cinnamon, half an ûqiya each, two ratls of sugar and two more of rosewater. Put all this on the fire until it makes an electuary. Its benefits: it strengthens the heart and lightens the spirit, digests foods, lightens the body gently, strengthens the liver, dissolves phlegm in various parts of the body, and aids in dropsy.
