Violet Water est. 1893 $20.99


Violets can help relieve pain. It is an analgesic, expectorant and a decongestant, which makes it particularly helpful for any types of aches and pains. The smell of violets have been revered for centuries, but the flower itself can’t give off enough oil and when it does the smell doesn’t last long. Therefore, for centuries, oil has been extracted from the leaves and flowers but in addition, other violet smelling ingredients have been used like Orris Root. It is said that true violet oil does not exist. And the violet/leaf oil does not carry the true violet smell. They both have different scents. The flower possesses a sweet powdery, woody-floral scent which is due to ionones in the flower. These ionones were first separated from Parma violets by Tiemann and Kruger in 1893. The discovery of ionones triggered the successful production of synthetic violet notes identical in scent. This means that before 1893 – using the oil produced by the flowers and leaves, one was not able to obtain the exact violet flower scent. After 1893 Violet waters, perfume, cosmetics, and toiletry products became very popular with the introduction of synthetic violet. Our violet water is post 1893. We bring you the true scent of Violets just like the 20th century women loved.

Use this for perfume, bath water, linens, room freshener, and so much more!

Historical Liquid Bluing for Laundry 18th century $19.99


Instructions:
Shake contents well. 2 tablespoons may be added to 2 gallons of wash water, rinse water, or starch water. We recommend using it in rinse water if not starching and if starching using it in your starch water. Once incorporated into the water, lay clothing in- only for a few seconds any longer and you have a chance for bits of blueing to settle in the fabric ( this will come out in the next wash). Pull out and let dry. Iron if needed.

During the eighteenth century and much into the nineteenth century Smalt was the go to product for bluing. However, Smalt carries toxicity from the cobalt in which it derives its color. Prussian Blue began to experience more common use in the mid eighteenth century for dyestuffs and by the early 1800’s became a household ingredient appearing in numerous recipes. Though this Prussian Blue recipe is from 1884, we recommend this product as a great nontoxic, alternative to Smalt/powder blue.

Florida Water est. 1865 $15.99

Given the label, ” The Universal Perfume”, the name refers to the Fountain of Youth said to be located in Florida.

Florida Water is a perfumed spirit which became popular in 19th Century North America. They say it was what lavender and Eau-de-cologune was to Europe. Although both the Germans and English had their own brand-name of Florida Water, it was more popular in America. Once you try it you will be hooked.

The label is based off of original labels from 1865.

The first Florida water known in the US dates to the early 1800’s. It was well known before 1830. By 1830 it was already available in most Perfumery, Druggist and Pharmaceutical houses in America which usually produced their own. This means that Florida Water’s recipe varied somewhat. It was only in the late 19th century that the bottles were standardized for all Florida Water. Previously to that Bottle designs also varied which is why it is hard for researchers to pinpoint the exact date of Florida Water’s beginnings.

Historical Excerpts:
1. In 1840 Eliza Leslie directed her readers: “On the Toilet table keep always your dressing-case, your bottles of Cologne, Florida Water, etc.. and a large pincushion.”
2. In 1864 the circular of a Philadelphia drug and chemical wholesaler included Florida Water in an assortment of sizes listed under, ” Lists of Drugs and Medicines which should be Purchased by a Country Store keeper.”

Florida Water was used by both men and women as a toilet requisite. it was used as a cordial and stimulant, as well as a breath freshener, Cologne, body spray, bath water, perfume for the body and handkerchief, sick room refresher and much more. Victorian etiquette manuals warned young ladies against the “offensive” impression made by a strong perfume, but Florida Water and Eau de Cologne were recommended as appropriate for all, along with sachets for scenting the linen and fresh flowers in the corsage. Large quantities were also used by barbershops as cologne and aftershave. In the 1880s and 1890s Murray & Lanman Florida Water was advertised as “The Richest of all Perfumes” and “The most Popular Perfume in the World”.

Violet Water est. 1893 $20.99


Violets can help relieve pain. It is an analgesic, expectorant and a decongestant, which makes it particularly helpful for any types of aches and pains. The smell of violets have been revered for centuries, but the flower itself can’t give off enough oil and when it does the smell doesn’t last long. Therefore, for centuries, oil has been extracted from the leaves and flowers but in addition, other violet smelling ingredients have been used like Orris Root. It is said that true violet oil does not exist. And the violet/leaf oil does not carry the true violet smell. They both have different scents. The flower possesses a sweet powdery, woody-floral scent which is due to ionones in the flower. These ionones were first separated from Parma violets by Tiemann and Kruger in 1893. The discovery of ionones triggered the successful production of synthetic violet notes identical in scent. This means that before 1893 – using the oil produced by the flowers and leaves, one was not able to obtain the exact violet flower scent. After 1893 Violet waters, perfume, cosmetics, and toiletry products became very popular with the introduction of synthetic violet. Our violet water is post 1893. We bring you the true scent of Violets just like the 20th century women loved.

Use this for perfume, bath water, linens, room freshener, and so much more!

Historical Liquid Bluing for Laundry 18th century $19.99


Instructions:
Shake contents well. 2 tablespoons may be added to 2 gallons of wash water, rinse water, or starch water. We recommend using it in rinse water if not starching and if starching using it in your starch water. Once incorporated into the water, lay clothing in- only for a few seconds any longer and you have a chance for bits of blueing to settle in the fabric ( this will come out in the next wash). Pull out and let dry. Iron if needed.

During the eighteenth century and much into the nineteenth century Smalt was the go to product for bluing. However, Smalt carries toxicity from the cobalt in which it derives its color. Prussian Blue began to experience more common use in the mid eighteenth century for dyestuffs and by the early 1800’s became a household ingredient appearing in numerous recipes. Though this Prussian Blue recipe is from 1884, we recommend this product as a great nontoxic, alternative to Smalt/powder blue.

Florida Water est. 1865 $15.99

Given the label, ” The Universal Perfume”, the name refers to the Fountain of Youth said to be located in Florida.

Florida Water is a perfumed spirit which became popular in 19th Century North America. They say it was what lavender and Eau-de-cologune was to Europe. Although both the Germans and English had their own brand-name of Florida Water, it was more popular in America. Once you try it you will be hooked.

The label is based off of original labels from 1865.

The first Florida water known in the US dates to the early 1800’s. It was well known before 1830. By 1830 it was already available in most Perfumery, Druggist and Pharmaceutical houses in America which usually produced their own. This means that Florida Water’s recipe varied somewhat. It was only in the late 19th century that the bottles were standardized for all Florida Water. Previously to that Bottle designs also varied which is why it is hard for researchers to pinpoint the exact date of Florida Water’s beginnings.

Historical Excerpts:
1. In 1840 Eliza Leslie directed her readers: “On the Toilet table keep always your dressing-case, your bottles of Cologne, Florida Water, etc.. and a large pincushion.”
2. In 1864 the circular of a Philadelphia drug and chemical wholesaler included Florida Water in an assortment of sizes listed under, ” Lists of Drugs and Medicines which should be Purchased by a Country Store keeper.”

Florida Water was used by both men and women as a toilet requisite. it was used as a cordial and stimulant, as well as a breath freshener, Cologne, body spray, bath water, perfume for the body and handkerchief, sick room refresher and much more. Victorian etiquette manuals warned young ladies against the “offensive” impression made by a strong perfume, but Florida Water and Eau de Cologne were recommended as appropriate for all, along with sachets for scenting the linen and fresh flowers in the corsage. Large quantities were also used by barbershops as cologne and aftershave. In the 1880s and 1890s Murray & Lanman Florida Water was advertised as “The Richest of all Perfumes” and “The most Popular Perfume in the World”.

Violet Water est. 1893 $20.99


Violets can help relieve pain. It is an analgesic, expectorant and a decongestant, which makes it particularly helpful for any types of aches and pains. The smell of violets have been revered for centuries, but the flower itself can’t give off enough oil and when it does the smell doesn’t last long. Therefore, for centuries, oil has been extracted from the leaves and flowers but in addition, other violet smelling ingredients have been used like Orris Root. It is said that true violet oil does not exist. And the violet/leaf oil does not carry the true violet smell. They both have different scents. The flower possesses a sweet powdery, woody-floral scent which is due to ionones in the flower. These ionones were first separated from Parma violets by Tiemann and Kruger in 1893. The discovery of ionones triggered the successful production of synthetic violet notes identical in scent. This means that before 1893 – using the oil produced by the flowers and leaves, one was not able to obtain the exact violet flower scent. After 1893 Violet waters, perfume, cosmetics, and toiletry products became very popular with the introduction of synthetic violet. Our violet water is post 1893. We bring you the true scent of Violets just like the 20th century women loved.

Use this for perfume, bath water, linens, room freshener, and so much more!
