As the colder weather sets in, we need a little boost once in a while. Claire would have known this and included things like Rose hips because of their vitamin C- which helps in preventing and treating colds, flu, and vitamin C deficiencies. We came up with a recipe after looking at a lot of historical tea recipes and herb uses for coughs, colds, wheezes, and chest infections. This will certainly clear the sinus's and it tastes amazing!
2. Claire's Medicinals Sassenach Deep Tissue Balm - Organic 1 oz. gin
Deep Pain, Sore Muscles, Back Aches, Cramps, Tummy Aches,
We Think Claire would approve of this recipe! "Deep Tissue Balm"
If someone would have let her peruse their family book of recipes, she would have seen a recipe for tea and known how to make it into a balm just like we did!!
3. Early 18th century Scottish Receipt To Heal - A Hastings Ointment
Made from a recipe from an early 18th century rural Scottish herbal recipe book held in a private collection in Glasgow. So many recipes have been lost throughout the centuries. This one is important historically because not only is it a very very old recipe from the early 18th century in Scotland--but it is also one example of how families kept their own recipes and passed them from generation to generation to be recopied and added to (usually by the women in the family). The original recipe states, "A hastings ointment to cure all wounds in 2 days."
4. Claire's Rose Lip Salve- Lip Gloss We chose this recipe because tinted lip balms or pomades were used thoughout history. Claire would have either had a one in her pocket as she crossed or she would have made or purchased one on the other side. We changed this one up a little bit to add a bit of her time period as well as recipes used in the 18th century.
5. Enchanting Past Life Oil - A special one of a kind past life oil created using ancient alchemy and herbal vibrations. Apply to all pulse points before bed or wear as a perfume and open the doors to your unique cosmic records and past timelines!Ingredients: Organic Lavender Petals, Organic Rose Petals, Organic Spikenard, Oil of Olives, Lavender Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Myrrh Oil, Organic Cinnamon Oil, Eucalyptus Oil, Organic Frankincense Oil, Organic Sage Oil, Organic Cedar Wood Oil, Organic Bulgarian Rose Oil, Jasmine Oil, Dark Musk Oil
"To be laid amongst your clothes. It will give a fragrant smell and keep the moths and worms away."
This comes from an authentic 18th century Scottish Herbal Grimoire.
Place this with your clothing, trunks, or blankets. It smells like Bay Rum.
