Nostradamus gave advice on how to make toothpaste and laxatives

Nostradamus didn’t only publish his famous prophecies: one of his earliest publications was entitled “Treatise on Cosmetics and Conserves” and provided instructions on a variety of things: from how to make blonde hair dye to laxatives and toothpaste.

The book also included recipes for marzipan paste, marmalade, and a “love jam” so powerful that it could induce “a burning of her heart to perform the love-act”. No comment!
