لَوْزٌ

[The almond; or almonds;] the fruit of a certain tree; (Mṣb, TA;) well known; (A, Mṣb, Ḳ;) abundant in the countries of the Arabs; said by some to be a species of مِزْج, which is that whereof the edible part is not attained save by breaking; by others said to be bruised, or brayed, مِزْج; and also called قُمْرُوصٌ: it is of two kinds, sweet and bitter: (TA:) the sweet is of moderate temperature, beneficial to the chest and the lungs and the bladder, (by reason of its soft nature, TA,) and the eating thereof, shelled, with sugar, augments the marrow and brain, and fattens: the bitter is hot in the third degree, opens stoppages of the nose, clears away [the spots in the skin called] نَمَش, and stills pain, (Ḳ [but omitted in the CK] and TA,) when it [app. meaning its oil] is drunk, and when dropped into the ear; (TA;) and it relaxes the bowels, and causes sleep, (Ḳ, TA,) when the soles of the feet are anointed with it, and when it is introduced into the nose; (TA;) and it is diuretic: (Ḳ, TA:) it is an Arabic word: (Mṣb, TA:) a coll. gen. n.: (TA:) n. un. with ة. (Ṣ, Mṣb, Ḳ.)
