The operation of boiling certain ingredients in a fluid, for the purpose of extracting the parts soluble at that temperature. Decoction, likewise, means the product of this operation, to which the terms Decoctum, Zema, Aphepsema, Apozem, Apozema, Hepsema, Chylus and Epsema, (F.) Decocte, Hydrole, Hydrolite, have been applied according to ancient custom, in order to avoid any confusion between the operation and its product; -as proeparatia is used for the act of preparing; proeparatum, for the thing prepared.
