A beautifully designed guide to natural beauty products, home cleaners, health remedies, and other household tips inspired by the techniques of our ancestors.

Using ingredients from your kitchen cupboards, garden, and vegetable patch (or your local supermarket), Forgotten Ways for Modern Days draws on the wisdom of homemakers, gardeners, and crafters of the past, introducing their knowledge and time-tested tips. From brightening your whites by putting eggshells in your washing to making beeswax furniture polish to herbal hair rinses, Rachelle Blondel brings the crafty ways of our grandparents into modern times.

About the Author:

RACHELLE BLONDEL lives in Yorkshire, where she creates "handmade accessories and vintage whatnot." She is the coauthor of Granny Chic. Rachelle's work and home have been featured in publications across the globe including You magazine, Country Living, Mollie Makes, The Simple Things, and Frankie.

Review:

In her spare but helpful book, Blondel (Granny Chic) highlights tips and lore from “homemakers of the past.” The book includes a number of suggestions for running a home from what is available in the garden and what comes from nature or is otherwise available in a typical household (such as eggshells). It includes step-by-step help with cleaning, harvesting, preserving, sewing, and even expelling negative energy from dark corners. It also features advice on how to nourish soil naturally (using eggshells, coffee grounds, seaweed, and Epsom salts) and “cures from the kitchen” (using salt for athlete’s foot, tonic water for leg cramps, honey for treating cuts, and olive oil for itchy skin). Think of it as a recipe book for pioneer-type living. It's not for the average homemaker but will prove invaluable to those who earnestly want to reduce waste, save money, and live purely.
