Unguent


An unguent is a soothing topical preparation spread on wounds, burns, rashes, abrasions or other topical injuries. It is similar to an ointment, though typically an unguent is less viscous and more oily.

It is usually delivered as a semi-solid paste spread on the skin and is often oily to suspend the medication or other active ingredients. See also salve.

Unguents as perfume

Historically unguents were a solid perfumed ointment used more for fragrance than healing. [1][2]
