This herbal mix is straight from a recipe for a refreshing foot bath from 1772 - The Toilet of Flora, which contains numerous cosmetic and remedial recipes. Juniper berries are reputed to be ‘stimulating & disinfecting’, rosemary was thought to ‘renovate vitality of limbs’, angelica was thought to be purifying and pennyroyal was ‘refreshing and repelled pests’!
