Compare the following entry in Otto Böhtlingk's "Sanskrit-Wörterbuch  
in kürzerer Fassung", s.v. rasa [5-173[2]] 1)  y) "Bez. der heiligen  
Silbe om Śāṅkh. Gṛhy. 2,13". (refers to the edition by Hermann  
Oldenberg published in Albrecht Weber's "Indische Studien" vol. 15,  
1878; for a digital version, see  
https://archive.org/details/indischestudien00unkngoog ; you will find  
the relevant textual passage on p. 62: vāruṇya 'rcā rasena vā; German  
translation: p. 63: "mit einem Varuṇaverse oder dem Saft(-spruch Om)";  
note: p. 141: "[...] vedānāṃ rasabhūtena praṇavena").

Best wishes,
