From the Publisher:

Although most people know Nostradamus for his prophecies, he was also one of the most important healers of his time. The Elixirs of Nostradamus contains his most coveted recipes for elixirs, beauty potions, scented waters, bottled fruits, and other specialties, all of which first appeared in the 16th century.

Lavishly illustrated, readers will learn how to add gold highlights to their hair, prepare a powder for whitening their teeth, make aromatic soap, preserve bitter cherries, and even make marzipan. The 41 recipes in this collection make a charming gift for anyone interested in the life of this compelling man.
