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
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…
