Angelica archangelica var. himalaica/Himalayas, India

The Eau de Milisse des Carmts, or Balm Water, which has been previously mentioned, is a very old perfume, which at one time was in very great repute. It is prepared with a pound and a half of balm tops in flower, four ounces of lemon peel, and two ounces each of crushed cinnamon, nutmegs, and cloves, together with one ounce of Angelica root, the same quantity of coriander, and five and a half pints of rectified spirits of wine. The materials are to be digested in the spirit for eight days, and then distilled in a vessel surrounded by hot water, the process being kept up until the whole of the spirit has been evaporated off, and the materials have become dry.
