WE INVITE YOU BACK TO THE DAYS OF THE STILLROOM
When I was looking fo the highest quality, high vibrational nutrition supplements for myself, the idea of a STILLROOM approach intrigued me!
The Stillroom is a distillery room found in most great houses, castles or large establishments throughout Europe dating Barack at least to medieval times. Women were in charge of the still room and passed the tradition down to their daughters.
Women as healers and caregivers for their families and communities pre-dates written history. From time immemorial, women were expected to give birth, nurture, heal, protect, provide for and spend their days steeped in the tradition of the wise women before them; caring for themselves and their families, and quite often, the entire community.
The women’s art of healing reached its peak in the early part of the last century, in the time of the Stillroom. The Stillroom was a room separate from the kitchen, but within close proximity, that contained a still. Unlike the large outdoor stills used for making alcoholic beverages, the Stillroom still was a smaller, simpler version used to distil herbs to extract their essence for use in medication, cosmetics, salves, and other household necessities.
The Stillroom Recipe Book was passed down from mother to daughter. With the word “recipe” originally referring to a medicinal formula, and a recipe book for the Stillroom may contain everything from medicinal recipes to cough syrups, cosmetics, liniments, perfumes, pomanders, food preservation, jams and jellies, wool dyeing, candle making, and soap making much like some of the favorite recipes passed down from our ancestors are today. Everything that sustained and added quality of life to the family might be found in the Stillroom Recipe book.
Today, with the increasing interest in Aromatherapy, Essential Oils and other natural forms of health care, the arts of the Stillroom are again gaining recognition and are truly the birthright of everyone. Companies, such as HB Naturals, who want to create the highest quality products are returning to the Still room approach to product formulation.
Whenever you make a simple herbal recipe, scent a homemade candle, enjoy a potpourri from your own herb garden, make an herbal vinegar or preserve food, you are participating in the preservation of the tradition and the legacy from the long-forgotten Stillroom.
When the stresses of our fast-paced lives make us long for the simpler times, take out your Stillroom recipe book, select a favorite recipe and step back in time.
The modern day Stillroom must have a knowledgeable formulator. In order to create the highest quality formulator HB Naturals has invited a world renowned formulator to oversea the still room.
