FLAMBE ou IRIS. L’iris vient en toute sorte de terre; se multiplie de plant enraciné en Mars.

La racine de cette plante purge par-haut & par bas. On s’en sert en substance dans l’hydropisie jusqu’à demi-once dans la même maladie. On pulverise cette plante & on le prend par le nez comme le tabac, pour faire éternuer. Les racines de l’iris de Florence se donnent en poudre jusqu’à un demi-gros aux Asthmatiques.
