Abstract:

During the Renaissance beauty products and herbal medicines were made in the workshops of monasteries, still rooms of homes large and small, or by alchemists in their storefronts. These arts were part of traditions handed down from Arab, Roman, Greek, and Turkish cultures. Every family had its own book of secrets (Libretti di Secreti, Tesori, Tesoretti) where they recorded successful iterations of their personal recipes for cosmetics, medicines, and household products such as dyes, candles, pesticides, etc. One example of this type of book is Caterina Sforza's alchemical, medical experiment, and recipe collection titled "Gli Experimenti". In this book Gigi Coulson has translated 24 of Caterina's beauty recipes into modern English for the benefit of those wanting to try their hand at creating them in their own still rooms.
