Vol. VIII, Episode 15

Civil War Cold Cream

Time to explore another use for lard in the 19th century! In this episode, Jeremy makes a cold cream from a receipt in an 1854 book. This is a simple period cosmetic to make and it really does work! After the episode, Jeremy used it to soothe dry and cracking skin on his hands. It was amazing how well it soaked in after a few moments and made a difference almost right away. The next day the cracks and dryness were almost all gone, with one application!
