🔎We stumbled upon an unusual list during our research.

It includes remedies for colds, treatments for rabid dog bites, methods for removing foot calluses, and even ways to eliminate freckles!

⚗️It was believed that freckles could be removed by applying a mixture of goat’s gall and lupin flour on the face before bedtime.

🦶Corns on the feet were thought to be treated effectively by combining onion juice and hen’s blood.

🐶However, there was no known remedy for the bites of rabid dogs except for prayer.
