Interested facts about Roses
“A rose by any other name is still going to smell the same” so the Bard said. That is because the symbolism of the rose has been passed down through the ages since Classical Times. The word “rose” is still used to express the color pink or red in Greek, French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and Romanian – the Romance languages. It is believed that this woody perennial originated in Asia, and there were 160 species, which grew in number, thanks to the Empress Josephine’s interest in collecting one example of all the existing roses from 1815 to 1830. It is thanks to her that the interest in hybridization of roses began to grow in France, and from there, it spread to the rest of Europe.

As hybridization of roses is an easy process, those 160 species grew up into 6000 species of roses of cultivars and hybrids. Prevost and Pepinieriste wrote down 880 names of different rose species in their Rose catalog. But other rose species, which were native to northwest Africa and North America were already being in use for medical purposes, cooking purposes, beautification purposes, and also as symbols, since ancient and medieval times.
The idea of My Love Is like a Red Red Rose has been en vogue for centuries.

Why is this so, because a rose is normally accompanied with “thorns” which were a defensive protective epidermal outgrowths. The original roses or creepers, and they managed to cling to plants with the help of these thorns. The idea of Roses for love have come down the millenniums as from the classical times when the rose was associated and identified with Venus – Aphrodite. Read more…

Introduction
In this book of our Magic Series, the author is proud to bring pomegranates to the readers’ notice. Since ancient times, pomegranates have been an integral part of ancient medicine and natural remedies. Pomegranates have been called the Poor man’s doctor, because since ancient times, man has been curing himself with spices, fruits, herbs and nuts.
That is why people of the 21st century are coming back to nature and looking for natural remedies, which are going to cure them of diseases and ailments. Chemical-based drugs may heal you very well on a short-term basis, but they are going to have an everlasting long-term effect on your body. On the other hand, fruits and vegetables as well as herbs are going to heal your body naturally, while making sure that you do not suffer from any sort of side effects. This is the reason why the magic series are going to tell you all about the wonderful medical and beauty enhancing benefits of different herbs, spices, fruit, vegetables and flowers.

Ancient medical treatises in Egypt and Persia consider pomegranates to be a powerhouse of good health. That is because they thought that this fruit could cure people of many ills. The Latin name for pomegranate is Punica granatum. One wonders whether the Romans fought the Punic wars with Carthage, to rule over lands where they could get pomegranates, because after all, everybody knows that the Roman emperors ransomed Kings for black pepper, exotic fruit and other spices.
According to ancient treatises, the pomegranate had the power to purify your blood, which would mean that your skin would not suffer from any sort of skin ailments, including pimples or boils. Also, when I was talking about pomegranates, with an ancient naturopath, he told me that sages of ancient time used to use pomegranate seeds to enhance brain power and vision, get rid of odema, renew the mineral resources needed for keeping our body working properly and reduce urinary inconsistency.
In fact, he handed me some pomegranate seeds, mixed up with rock salt, to make me feel hungry. [I had lost my appetite, because of illness and also due to stress.] He said that that activated the stomach and made it do its job properly and naturally. It worked. So if you have a continuous access to pomegranates, lucky, lucky you!
The pomegranate peels are going to keep you beautiful. The pomegranate seeds’ juice is going to keep you healthy, both externally and internally. Read more…

Introduction
In this book of our Miracle Series, you are going to know more about the power of a very common ingredient, found in every one’s kitchen. This is salt, without which any salty dish is going to lose its savor and flavor.

Imagine food without salt!
Salt was held to be so precious in ancient times, that Roman soldiers were given salt daily at night, as salary. The idea was that they were going to have enough of salt in which they could cook their evening meal, with ground corn and onions. This was the diet on which the Roman legions marched and conquered half of the world. More than 3000 years ago, salt was used as a coin to ransom Kings and conquered prisoners, along with spices, which were considered to be more precious than precious stones and gold.
It is a historically known fact that Portuguese, German and British rulers of Africa asked the local chieftains to pay their taxes in ivory, local produce, and salt. That is the reason why, the idea of “he eats salt with his food,” was said to describe a rich man. Even as late as the 19th century, when the transport system had improved imports of salt to Africa, the fierce warriors in innermost Africa still demanded salt from and of their conquered prisoners. The average man did not have salt to eat, and that is why he flavored his food with aromatic leaves and other herbs gathered from the forests.
It is also a historical fact that the British tried out the same idea of taxation on salt in India, and that immediately brought the whole of India United up in arms, in their fight for independence. Salt was the birthright of every poor person in India, and putting the tax on salt was almost as much a tyranny, as putting tax on something like say, water or the air one breathed. The whole of India joined in the fight for independence, because they did not want rulers, who wanted to tax the salt they ate in their food. The quit India movement thus gained more popularity and impetus. And that is one of the factors which may be British decide to quit India in 1947.
Ancient medical treatises in Egypt and Persia considered salt to be necessary ingredient in making up nostrums and remedies to cure ills. Also, salt was used as a scrub, instead of soap or even sand, to remove dust and grime after a hard days work. In many religious ceremonies, salt was considered to be with the most pure of ingredients, and that is why it was offered to the gods.
If you go to Russia, you are going to be welcomed with the bread and salt. This has a historical significance. The idea of eating one’s salt, and being loyal to one’s salt has come down through millenniums, as the way in which feudal lords managed to keep the loyalty of the people under them. The one who had betrayed his own salt was a traitor to whom nobody would give any welcome.
The underlying significance was a soldier worked for a feudal lord. He was paid enough with which he could afford to buy precious salt for his food. Even today in the East, one takes the pinch of salt offered to him by a friend, or by an acquaintance, to acknowledge that his loyalty remains with the friend who has made him a brother of the salt.

Introduction
Vegetables are such an integral part of our daily lives, that we really do not bother much about their natural benefits and value. All we know is that they are those greens which we had to eat when we were children, because mommy said so, and she was bigger than us. And she was not a good cook. And also, she made every vegetable dish taste so boring, so blah and so bland, that one promised oneself that one would never eat it, when one grew up.
That is the reason why so many of us grow up with an anti-vegetable subconscious feeling. But did you know that these green and leafy vegetables are the reasons why you kept so healthy, so energetic, and so bouncing when you were a kid. They were the natural mineral resources, which provided you with vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients, which help your muscles grow healthy, your skin glow and made you look so bright eyed and bushy tailed.
And then you grew up and stopped eating vegetables. Instead, you began eating and other high-protein diet, without any greens or yellows or reds , which were harvested from plants/vines/herbs or shrubs. And that made your body deficient in all the essential vitamins. It also made you less healthy than what you were when you were a kid. And you did not get to know it.
So here are some good reasons why you should eat plant produce, especially when they are green and leafy.
Fibrous, leafy and green vegetables, fresh from the farm are, of course, the pride and joy of every health conscious and proud cook. If the proportions of these vegetables are increased in your daily diet, you are going to lessen your intake of carbohydrates, starch, and grain. This is going to benefit you and the general state of your health in the long run. It also means that you will never suffer from constipation.
Nothing can take the place of cereals and grains in your daily diet in the same manner, vegetables have their own invaluable and irreplaceable place in the diet groups which make up your daily meals.
The benefits of vegetables eaten raw, or cooked, then means that you are going to have a tasty meal, with natural digestive products being added to your system. Your blood circulation is going to get invigorated and your digestive system is going to get rid of any small ailments brought about by eating a starchy, fatty and high-protein high carbohydrate diet.
Vegetables are amazing toxin eliminators. So if you are thinking of detoxifying your body with any star – endorsed detoxifying products, think again. Try increasing the amounts of vegetables in your diet.
The best thing about fibrous vegetables is that it adds the amount of bulk to the fecal material so that it can be eliminated during the regular bowel movements every day. This keeps your system healthy. It also keeps your skin glowing, and you energetic. That is because there are no toxins accumulating in your body and weakening your system. Read more…

Introduction
Nobody really knows who first discovered yogurt. Butter is supposed to have been discovered millenniums ago, when camel’s milk was placed in animal skin hides while being transported from one place to another by Arab or Turkish nomads. The ambulatory movement of the camel walking across the desert seem to have a churning effect on the hides, and in the evening, when the milk was taken out of the sack, two new products were discovered. Butter and buttermilk.
This possibly apocryphal serendipity is on par with the supposed discovery of wine. Millenniums ago, a Greek slave was suffering from toothache, and that was so painful that she found an earthenware pitcher full of fermenting grape juice left by some other careless slave. All those bubbles made her think that it was poison, and she would rather drink that, than suffer the pain of a toothache. So she did drink of the juice of the grape and fell asleep. And the miracle of wine was discovered to gladden the hearts of generations. No wonder the Greeks had a God Bacchus – also known as Dionysus and the Roman equivalent Liber to whom you liberally paid libations, before you drank wine – for wine.
But nobody has told us how yogurt was discovered and by whom. But in ancient Indian medicine texts, the mixture of honey with yogurt eaten every day is considered to be the food of the gods to keep you everlastingly healthy.
Along with yogurt, the side products of bacterially fermented milk included buttermilk and butter. Every house proud woman made sure that she kept some yogurt back from yesterday’s batch to prepare today’s batch of yogurt. These cultures have enzymes and bacteria, which are extremely beneficial for your digestive system.
The enzymes produce lactic acid. Lactic acid is what is going to ferment the lukewarm milk. It is also what makes your yogurt sour if you leave it in a warm place after the yogurt has been made. So the moment you see the yogurt set, put it in a cool place. Read more…

Introduction
Grandma definitely did not know anything about chemical products, when she was looking for beauty remedies and natural recipes. She just used the things that were closest at hand. These included fruits, vegetables, and spices. These also included natural products like Fullers earth, oatmeal, honey, yogurt, etc. It was only in the 19th century that she began to use glycerin as an additive in natural products. Until then all her beauty recipes were passed on to her, from her grandmother, and so on down the ages.
She also used to make hair pomades for grandpa, in Elizabethan times using animal fat. No wonder, grandpa did not bother much about the smelly atmosphere surrounding him in his house or outside, because after all, his scalp, and unwashed body stank as powerfully as his surroundings. Also, she painted her face with lead oxide and chalk powder in order to imitate the pale complexion of Queen Elizabeth, but that lead oxide was extremely poisonous and give her a very short life span. But then, she was just imitating her ancient Roman and Greek ancestresses who use a mixture of calcium carbonate, chalk and lead oxide to paint their faces, and then redden her lips with a red paint made up of clay and red iron oxide. In fact, this red paint on the lips was the prerogative of the Empress and her aristocratic friends in ancient Rome, though Greek women of all classes used it regularly. Also, it was allowed on women of the street in Rome. Virtuous Roman matrons never painted their lips, even though Plautus said that a woman without paint is like food without salt! Wonder about the company he kept.
One really enterprising Italian Signora Toffana thought up a face powder, which would consist of chalk and arsenic. She gave her woman clients instructions to use this powder upon their faces, only when they were in the company of their husbands. When the number of husbands dying due to arsenic poisoning began to escalate, the signora was executed, but she left behind a number of very wealthy and happy widow clients.
In Italy during the Middle Ages, it was fashionable to have a white skin, but golden hair was best achieved with a little bit of sun bleaching. So the ladies applied lemon juice all over their hair, and put on a wide brimmed hat to cover their faces. This wide brimmed hat, however, did not have any top. The hair was allowed to flow out of the open top, and bleach in the sun!
Egyptian ladies in ancient Egypt used egg whites and honey keep their skins youthful, butter and powdered barley to prevent and remove blemishes in their skin, and all that harsh effect of the Egyptian sun, neutralized with a mixture of milk and honey applied on their faces every day. In fact, I use cream and honey with a pinch of salt, every evening. Read more…

Remember that those were the days, when ignorance was also rife and many quacks came up with nostrums potions and brews. One can read about the most famous of them all, the witches brew in MacBeth . Grandma is not going to be putting eyes of newt and tongues of frogs in her remedies, but is going to tell us about how simple fruit juices and spices, can heal and cure common remedies.

Introduction
Grandma was not only a good household manager, taking care of her large family, on a limited budget, but she also needed to be a good cook and housekeeper. That is why, she used her experience and knowledge, to make sure that she learned all the easiest shortcuts, which would prevent her from throwing away items which were damaged, including clothes, food and other items around the house and garden. Consider this damage control done by grandma.
Grandma was the first recycler. Dresses were handed down from child to child, and if there was no child of that particular age, and that dress size, it was handed over to another member of the family where the dress could be utilized through more years of wear and tear. After the dress was torn to nearly rags and tatters, she used the cloth for stuffing cushions and pillows or for patching other dresses. This may sound extremely laughable to our world, where there is plenty, and we can throw away or just give away things, when we think they are getting old, but these were the ways in which household managers – the females – were brought up in the East and the West down the centuries. Waste not want not, was their motto.
So enjoy reading through these collected damage control tips, and techniques, which are going to help you keep healthy, fit, your house pest free and other techniques, all brought to you down the ages and time-tested.
Let us start with the kitchen.
The maximum number of accident, sickness at home and the kitchen somehow seems to be the gunpoint. Culinary mishaps take place all the time, there. But when they do, there should be no need to panic. There is a solution to every problem, if you do not fall into attitudes of hysteria and shock at every little disaster. And I know a few men and women who enjoy what is known in the 20th century as “creating.”
So instead of acting like a prima donna Cordon Bleu chef, you can follow something my grandmother said, “there are absolutely no problems, there are only imaginative solutions.” Especially in matters of these things happening when you are entertaining.

Introduction
Grandma was a great believer in natural remedies and cures. She knew that herbs and other plant products, were amazingly efficient, and effective in getting rid of minor ailments, which would be the lot and portion of her large family.
That is why she used all those nostrums, infusions, decoctions, and other herbal products which had been passed on to her by her grandma and so on down the ages. So here is another collection of grandma’s natural remedies and ancient herbal recipes to keep you healthy, as well as beautiful.
All these products are easily available right in your garden or in your kitchen. Best of all, they have no aftereffects and they have no side effects. That is because all these products are completely hundred percent natural.
Why are so many people going back to natural remedies and ancient herbal recipes, in the 21st century? That is because they have found that chemical-based drugs and medicines have a short-term effect. They may also come accompanied with toxic effects, and side effects. So you are going to find yourself suffering from these long-term aftereffects. However, that is definitely not the case when you are taking natural remedies, which have been made with hundred percent natural products.
And that is what grandma did. She gathered all the natural products available in her garden, or easily available in the woods, when she went rambling out gathering herbs, and brought them home. These were then used, to cure a number of ailments. Some of them seem rather drastic, but you need to remember that grandma was more of an experimenter. She knew that there was one product in these herbal combinations which did all the magic. The rest were just “filling.” Read more…

Introduction
I began looking at grandma’s household hints when I saw that most of us were using chemical based cleaners to clean our greasy kitchen utensils every morning and evening. Not only was this bad for our general health, because there could be a side effect due to any possible residue of chemicals which had not been washed away during the last rinsing.
This is why this collection of grandma’s household hints, is going to be very useful for all those people who prefer natural or easily available remedies, and solutions available right there in the kitchen or gardens.
Apart from your home and kitchen, you are going to find long forgotten hints, which were used by your and my grandma to get rid of stains, preserve clothes from pests, and other tips, which may sound very amusing and surprising in this day and age. But you should remember that grandma was brought up in times when she had to watch every penny of grandpa’s limited income and make it stretch until it screeched. That is why, she was more prone to using her own natural good sense, inborn shrewdness, or knowledge passed to her from her own grandmother, friends, relatives, and from her neighbors too. In fact, they used to meet once in a while, and exchange household tips, which may have gone something like this “Oh, Mrs…., I have found it so easy to remove stains from my hands, by just rubbing a lemon over them, and I prevent chapping by drying my hands after I have done the washing and then rubbing a pinch of starch all over the surface, ”all the while waving those same unchapped stainless hands in the air.
