From the ladies of the Medieval Still Room;
Balms, ointments, soaps and perfumes were just a small selection of the wide variety of personal hygiene products bought or made in the medieval household. Yes, they did indeed wash in those days! In fact they not only bathed – they waxed, dyed, powdered, moisturised, deodourised, shaped, tinted and coloured all aspects of their bodies; not only to be clean, but to enhance Nature’s work and for those that could afford it- to be fashionable.
A surprising number of extant texts have survived, describing not only the ingredients used, but also recipes, notes on best use, and where to source rare ingredients. Apothecary invoices, shipping manifests, published folios and home recipe books all enable us to recreate the cosmetic and hygiene products and home remedies that were available to different levels of society.
