400+ Year Old Formula From Famous French Beauty
From Healing Foods From the Bible by Reese Dubin
"Set your aging clock back 20 years with this do-it-yourself face lift."
According to this article, Ninon de L'Enclos was a great French beauty who, at 90, was still so physically attractive that young men fell in love with her!
On another site, this was said: "The gift of perpetual beauty was
bestowed upon Ninon de L’Enclos by a “Noctambule,”
or "a little black man," (her description) and for nearly 80
years she was the rage in Paris, her charms influencing the most distinguished
men of the period, including Cardinal Richelieu, the great Condé
La Rochefoucauld, Molière, Voltaire, and a host of others."
"Authentic pictures of her (paintings--this was in the 1600's) at ages ranging from 50-85 show a clear, smooth face, with youthful rounded contours, a smooth throat, and symmetrical neck."
Apparently she shared her secret with friends, including Saint Evremond, who at the age of 89 was reportedly still so handsome that "young girls swooned over him." The secret was revealed in a pamphlet published in 1710 by her personal attendant for almost 50 years, Jeanne Sauval. A claim is made that this is the only successful method for removing wrinkles, aside from plastic surgery.
One of the ingredients is no longer available (spermaceti from sperm-whale
oil), but a substitute has been suggested in the following formula.
The "Miracle Foods..." author suggests substituting olive oil for the lard and shaved or chopped candle wax for the spermaceti.
The next batch I made, after the first batch spoiled, I went back to the almond oil, lard, and candle wax. It got too hot and the onion juice lumped up. That's when I really had a problem with the vanilla mixing in. In spite of being blended with a hand beater, when it set up the oils and vanilla had completely separated. I reheated it and kept blending with the hand beater all the while the mixture was setting up to get it to stay together, but it still made an odd mix with brown vanilla drops throughout the mix.
So--back to the drawing board. I went looking for something like the rose water, which I believe has a consistency that will blend with the oils, if one can find it (later, I found the recipe for making it below). It must be a lovely scent, and one is needed to neutralize the onion smell.
Instead, I found a vanilla-scented oil spray with "age-defying" apricot kernel oil and vitamin E--WATKINS Vanilla "dry oil body mist." It costs $3-$4 at Walmart and is compatible with the other ingredients. Of course, if I find or make some rose water, I'll have to try that too. I used about 1/3 of the small bottle in the mix, and added it as the other ingredients were cooling.
The instructions don't specify how much onion juice, but do say "a hunk" which can be juiced by squeezing through an ordinary garlic press--an item I already had, but which can be purchased inexpensively. It does need to be strained after being squeezed through the press.
Next time, if I use the lard, I will get actual hog fat from the grocery store and render it. It made me uneasy using processed lard with preservatives in it. Rendered fat would have been used in the original formula.
I doubt anything can really replace the sperm whale spermaceti (from sperm whale oil), and that the formula could not possibly be equal to that used by Ninon without it. It must have been a waxy protein matter of extraordinary rejuvenation powers, but the other ingredients have their own powers.
The instructions say: "Apply once a day to forehead, face and neck, whenever convenient, as at bedtime. Cover the pillow with something to prevent staining. Wipe off a few hours later, or upon awakening, with cotton balls soaked with rubbing alcohol.* Then use any gentle commercial skin cleanser and toner or moisturizer."
Instead, this is what I did: I found an old blanket and sacrificed it to the cause, threw it over my bedding at night, and while watching tv, took the wonderfully creamy mix and started rubbing it on my arms, legs, and face ...especially my badly sun-burned forearms that look damaged from spending a week several years ago outside in the boiling sun "weed-eating" a friend's neglected 6-foot high front and back lawn so she could move. Everything was covered but my arms. They ended up and remained a rough, spotty mess--my fault for such carelessness. We absolutely do need sunlight for health, particularly for the production of vitamin D, but not this kind of self-abuse.
Results: I'm using the last mix with the almond oil, lard, onion and Watkins vanilla spray oil, which made an unbelievably luscious hand-cream. It's only been about 3 days, but the skin on my arms is changing somewhat and my face feels buttery soft. Also, it had pretty much absorbed by bedtime. There was nothing to rub or wipe off the next morning, unless it's supposed to be slathered on and left thick. I think this recipe is a "keeper!"
I will keep the readers here posted--djt
One reader wrote who apparently saw the original formula
in French and said there was a wrong translation of one ingredient, that
it wasn't onion juice, but juice from the succulent "hens & chicks"
Leeks are related to onions, so that is probably where the error in translation occurred.
Reader Lucie D. emailed me the following information:
"I thought I might share a few things that I found..
I think I will use pure rose oil (if not rosewater) – as I think
it was a very important component and not just for scent... the reason
I think this is important to use the rose as I have recently learnt that
the vibrational frequency of rose oil is around 350 MHz – making
it a superclass of oil – and for very pure oil it is $350 for 15ml!!
Question: can I use distilled rosewater ? – because the pharmacists have it behind the counter in bulk – and you can buy it very cheaply - they will give you as much or as little as you want.. )
After researching on the net the closest thing to spermaceti (which as you know was extracted from the head of the whale and not the blubber) I have learnt that it looked like an oil (clear) but was actually classified as a wax.. And that jojoba oil is the very closest chemical composition to it and that it is also classifed as a wax and not an oil:Jojoba oil can be thanked for helping to save the whales as it is chemically almost identical to spermaceti oil found in the head of the Sperm whale. Jojoba "oil" is also a natural mimic of the oil secreted by human skin. It may be used to protect and lubricate skin and hair. It is soothing, and protects against premature aging and wrinkling of the skin caused by exposure to ultra violet radiation.
So.. Do you think I Should use natural beeswax (we have natural deep yellow/brown candles from local honey makers) or the jojoba – or a mix of both?
Another thing.. I know that if you put a couple of emu oil drops over top of your skincare/creams and rub in, that it takes the creams etc deeper into the skin... Then I looked into it and found out that it is actually a rendered fat.. So I am thinking of using this instead of LARD as it will have a lot more benefits I would say and be cleaner but also very rich in goodies.
I’m thinking of using a VERY low heat – like a double boiler, so easier to control – so as not to destroy any of the properties in the cold pressed oils... Do we even know that this mixture was heated? I can't find the original instructions anywhere.. If using candle/bee’s wax then yes it does need heating – but not if the spermaceti was a liquid also... What do you think about this?"
I'll bet they didn't heat the original formula, unless the lard had to be heated, and that wouldn't have been the same as the hydrogenated form of lard sold today. Maybe one should just heat the wax, if wax is used, and mix the other ingredients in that, because for certain the less heaing one can do the better. It sounded like the candle wax formed a kind of crust over the cream, maybe to hold it in, which was removed by alcohol. We quit using rubbing alcohol for anything after reading Dr. Clark's research (below), and the idea of putting modern candle wax on the skin wasn't so appealing. We had the beeswax already and I know it has some healing properties of it's own, so that's what we're sticking with, but I'd like to try your suggestions (as finances allow) which sound outstanding! --both the ingredient substitutes, and the warning about over-heating fragile cold-pressed oils. --djt
*Do not use rubbing alcohol where it can absorb into the skin. Dr. Hulda Clark has found that rubbing alcohol provides something chemically that allows a common parasite to develop inside the body and reproduce instead of being expelled at an earlier, harmless stage.Natural Rose Water (make your own)
This recipe is meant to yield about 1 gallon of Rosewater. You will need a clear gallon container, about 1 gallon of distilled water, enough fresh rose petals to fill the jar 3/4 way full, and 1 cup of Vodka. Hint: Your sun tea jar will work great for this and is completely safe to be reused. Make sure your container is clean and fill it up with rose petals about 3/4 of the way. If you want to use your Rosewater for ingesting make sure your petals have been organically grown. Pour the water in until it covers the petals completely. Once your water is in pour in the Vodka. Put the lid on and shake it up a bit so that the ingredients mix together thoroughly. Place in the sun or on a sunny window sill and wait. You can put it outside in the sun, but bring it in each night. Think of this as the same process as making sun tea with the exception of the length of time needed to be completed. You will start to see your water turning color after only a couple of days but for the best results wait two weeks. Strain out the rose petals and you have Rosewater! NOTE: The unscented vodka has a dual purpose. One--if there is any bacteria on the petals it will kill it, and two, the alcohol helps prolong the scent. You don't have to use it but if you don't, you may find a little green and blue island floating on the top (mildew!) Take special care to keep the petals below the water line because if they rise above it, they will mildew too. Suggested uses: Fill a bottle with an atomizer (spray) and mist after bathing or showering. Wonderful for the face. Also, make your own glycerin and rosewater hand lotion
According to the French beauty Ninon de L'enclos, she bitterly complained, "if God had to give women wrinkles, He might at least have put them on the soles of her feet." The essential oils of lavender, geranium, neroli, rosemary and rose are historic "anti-aging" ingredients for mature skin. Jasmine, frankincense, myrrh, carrot seed, and helichrysum also rejuvenate the skin, encouraging new cell growth. Since jojoba oil also contains natural wrinkle removing qualities we find it a natural as a base or carrier oil to add our essential oils into. To 4 oz jojoba oil add 50 to 60 drops total of any or all of the above oils. Mixing and matching creates a natural synergy. Example: Lavender has its own attributes as does helichrysum have its own. However when they are mixed-instead of 1 and 1 making 2--they magnify each other to the tune of perhaps 5 or 6 or more. May be used day or night or both for a truly enhancing and youthful appearance.
Another "Secret of Wrinkle-Free Skin":
In Greece, women use the juice (not oil) of green olives to keep their skin wrinkle-free. Do not drink it--it's bitter and astringent--and is used to RUB on the skin of the face, throat, hands, wrists and forearms in quick circular motions, patting the skin briskly from time to time. Apparently this keeps the skin tight and unable to wrinkle. They take good (extra virgin) olive oil with meals to also keep the skin "soft and resilient." However, it is noted that in Indonesia, they do drink this juice in small amounts, but to kill intestinal worms, not for skin care.
Tighten Loose Skin
Take two egg yolks and beat them thoroughly in one-half cup of olive oil. Brush on face and throat, and allow to set for 10 minutes. Beat the egg whites and then layer them over the top of the first dressing. Leave on for 30 minutes, and then wash off. Reportedly leaves the skin appearing tighter and wrinkle-free.
Clay Beauty Mask
Clays have been used for centuries in beauty treatments to pull toxins from the skin and to refine the skin's texture. This masque also works for a wonderful full-body treatment. 1 tablespoon (kaolin-china white), French green, Moroccan red or bentonite clay, 2 to 3 tablespoons rosewater or filtered water. In a small bowl mix the clay and the liquid until you have a smooth paste. With your fingers, apply the clay mask all over your face and neck, avoiding the eye area. Relax and let the mask dry completely (about 20 minutes). Rinse with warm water. Finish off with a mist of rosewater.
Rose Water and Glycerin Hand Cream
In an attractive bottle blend 1/2 rosewater and 1/2 vegetable glycerin. Shake well and it's ready to use. Great for hands, face, rough heels and elbows. Feels wonderful.
Aromatic Bath Vinegar
25 drops essential oil, 4 oz vinegar. Combine ingredients. Let the essential oil sit in the vinegar for a week, shaking the bottle every day. Use 2 tablespoons per bath.
Body and Dusting Powder
1 cup arrowroot powder, 25 drops essential or fragrance oil. In a blender or with a mortar and pestle mix very well. That's it!!! Put into a shaker can or in one of our hard-round boxes with its own powder puff.
Cocoa Butter Suntan Creme
Although sesame oil has some sun-screening properties, it is not a sunscreen. 1/2 cup light sesame oil, 2 tablespoons coconut oil, 2 tablespoons cocoa butter chunk. Mix all ingredients in a clean, ovenproof container. Heat the mix gently, stirring all of ingredients together. You may place the container in the microwave on high for 1 minute, or heat it gently in a double boiler or water bath on the stove top. Let the mixture cool completely. Place the suntan oil in a clean jar or container with a tight-fitting lid.
Natural Deodorant Cream
1/4 cup vegetable shortening, 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder, 2 teaspoons baking soda, 1/8 teaspoon tincture of benzoin. (a few drops of essential oil is optional). Blend all ingredients together into a smooth cream. Place in a clean jar with a tight-fitting lid. To use, rub a small amount of cream under your arms. Yield: 3 oz.
Lanolin Lip Balm
1 teaspoon lanolin, 1 teaspoon beeswax pearls, 1 teaspoon petroleum jelly. Melt lanolin, beeswax and jelly over medium heat in a glass measuring cup in a pan of boiling water. Pour the melted mixture into any of our lip balm jars or tubes. Let cool. Yield: 1/2 OZ.
Garden of Life brand "Omega Zyme" digestive enzymes:
After taking these digestive enzymes for other reasons, in less that one month the thick, rough, cracked skin on the bottom of my feet completely smoothed out. One other product did the same years ago. See below--DJT
A special potassium drink made from roots, berries, etc. from Canada--many distributors on the internet. This amazing supplement smoothed out the rough skin on my feet, gave the family shiny hair, re-mineralized our teeth so that no one had cavities for several years after just 2 months of use, and must have been a boon to our skin overall at the same time. One of those few products we actually saw first hand make a difference in a short time--DJT
According to Dr. James K. Van Fleet, D.C. who reports remarkable success with an arthritis program which includes the use of peanut oil taken internally and as a massage oil, when rubbed in and massaged, it apparently eases pain, helps arthritis, and stimulates circulation so that body parts and areas "pink up" with increased health, as a beneficial side effect to treating arthritic pain and inflammation. Use only raw, cold-pressed peanut oil from the health food store, unless available elsewhere. Hain makes a product that works.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil also works on pain and soreness--it has anti-inflammatory properties when massaged into the skin, as we discovered when trying it experimentally, and is reported to have beneficial effects on the skin when consumed as a food and used to massage the skin--DJT

Normally, cheap sardines are so disgusting that I can't stomach them, but I saw an article by Dr. Mercola about sardines, how most of what passes as sardines are just small fish the "authorities" allow to be substituted for actual sardines. He had contracted with some foreign source to purchase actual sardines from pure waters, so we tried a case 4 mixed kinds and found them completely different from anything I'd bought in the US--tiny, mild-flavored and in tasty sauces or oils. I checked and they don't seem to be available any more, but a search of his site brought up article about Portuguese sardines, so that's probably what they were. My Norwegian husband informs me that the expensive kind around here, "king Oscar" is the only comparison. So, if you're like me and can't choke down cheap, fishy smelly, fake sardine substitutes which are much larger than true sardines, read the labels carefully and look for Portuguese sardines with some indication that it's the real thing, or go for the more expensive brands at least. It's probably a case of "you get what you pay for". --djt
