An Ointment for Sore Breasts (Spell)

From Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus, Joseph H. Peterson edition:

An Ointment for Sore Breasts.

Take a pure cold cast-lead lye three or four ounces, one point of a knife full of saffron, pure linseed oil, two or three ounces, two ounces of good vinegar, the whites of two or three eggs, these things beat together, then take rye flour, which is unbolted, stir it until it gets stiff. Take a white cloth, of the form of the breast, cut a small hole therein so that the nipple draws out, and put the salve upon a cloth and apply it to the breast till it becomes hard. When used in good season before waiting too long, it will allay the pains, but if it is neglected too long it must need suppurate, the ointment draws it open and heals it. It must not be cut or rubbed or washed.

The grimoire Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus lists this spell.
