  • During the eighteenth century, women shaved off their eyebrows and replaced them with false ones made from mouse fur
  • Baldness was “cured” by combining chicken droppings with potassium salts, and spreading it on balding areas

Next, learn about the medicinal benefits of various herbs and essential oils – including:

  • Cinnamon can help regulate blood sugar for diabetics
  • The Doctrine of Signatures tells us that eucalyptus cleanses “swampy” areas of the body, just as it cleanses malarial swamps
