DIY Victorian Beauty...

Wednesday, November 2, 2011




I love Victorian (and earlier) homeopathic remedies and "Toilet" remedies. My 1897 edition of The Cottage Physician has so many of these... Recipes for "Invalid Food," Tinctures to treat Hysteria and Nervous disease. Real fun stuff! Not sure I'd be hoping on the bandwagon to try any of these things. What do you think?

I'm also a little scared at the fact that this book comes with its own prescription sheets!

  1. Some of these look pretty interesting, but aqua ammonia for curling hair? Geez. That sounds risky!
