Mar 26, 2019I don't even know where to begin. So many remedies. Kind of like Jethro Koss's book nautural remedies, and my grandmother. I really don't know how well these actually work, but I still swear by rose hips and chamomile tea for some ailments. I don't know if they cure, but they comfort! Interesting read on folk medicines.

Sep 08, 2013I found Mother's Remedies at an unusual bookstore while looking for a vintage beekeeping book. The book smelled a little musty but I still found it charming and purchased it. (the bookseller told me that the best way to rid an "old book smell" is s to place a fabric softener sheet in the front, middle and back of an old book and seal in a zip-lock bag for 24 hours. It definitely helped but did not eliminate the smell) After browsing through the book I am happy to say that I LOVE the herb section I found Mother's Remedies at an unusual bookstore while looking for a vintage beekeeping book. The book smelled a little musty but I still found it charming and purchased it. (the bookseller told me that the best way to rid an "old book smell" is s to place a fabric softener sheet in the front, middle and back of an old book and seal in a zip-lock bag for 24 hours. It definitely helped but did not eliminate the smell) After browsing through the book I am happy to say that I LOVE the herb section which lists over 100 "common" herbs and detailed directions for the use and preparation of them. I also love the colorful herb prints that are in this book and may remove and frame them for my kitchen wall! The section on "miscellaneous recipes" is entertaining and "entry 253" reads "Sweeping as a Beautifier-'the average woman who does her own housework gets exercise enough, only it is not under the best conditions, for the air, as a rule, is not sufficiently fresh. If she wants to be benefitted physically, while putting her house in order, let her make it like the outdoors, with the windows wide open so the fresh air can sweep through the rooms. If necessary she can wear a jacket while making beds and sweeping, and by the time her work is done she is bound to be in a healthy glow. If she does not do housework she must go outdoors, and walk, and indeed, a little walking is desirable even for the housekeeper.'" Although this sounds dated, housework does have to be done and it is healthy to get fresh air. I will try wearing a jacket this fall while cleaning my house with the windows open:) Or how about this ... "Our Winter Supply-From an instinct, which ought to be common to all of us, in time of plenty we lay something aside for the time of need. As housewives this truth comes home to us, especially in the summer when we have an abundance of fruit which, without care, would soon become worthless. By reason of which fact we have developed methods of canning, preserving, etc., which at present time have become so advanced that we can retain a very large share of the original color, flavor and shape of the fruit." It goes on to list canning instructions for canning several items. Another section on medical home remedies offers some useful and some now known to be dangerous remedies, i.e. "hot" water douches, etc. All in all, I found this book a great historical and informational index. ...more

Jan 12, 2013Learned a lot of these tips growing up, but nice to have them written in one place.
Jan 25, 2013All I can say is this was really interesting reading, recipes....some I would never try just for fear itself. Others my Grandma and Mom have used.
