A Woman’s Book of Secrets
~a legacy of yearnings and gleanings, insights and questions, inspirations and recipes, mysteries and charms~
Books of secrets were compilations of remedies, recipes and magic formulae that began to be printed in the sixteenth century and were published continuously down to the eighteenth century. The books of secrets contained hundreds of medical recipes, household hints, and technical recipes on alchemy, dyeing, making perfume, oil, incense, and cosmetics.
