How To Make Your Own Perfume

In the process of looking up some perfumes I discovered that there are tons and tons of recipes for creating your own perfume. I wasn't sure where to begin so I figured I'd start with Rose Perfume since many popular fragrances contain roses, like Chanel No. 5.
To make this perfume you will need:
Strainer
¾ cup fresh English Garden rose petals (not supermarket roses)
1/2 cup 80- or 100-proof vodka (any brand)
2 1/2 cups distilled water
Mason jar (large with a lid)
Perfume bottle (empty, of course)
optional: 2-4 drops rose essential or fragrance-grade oil (like Doterra)

Steps for making this are EASY:

1. Drop petals into the bottom of mason jar and pour the vodka over it. Cover and let it sit for 24 hours in a cool, dark place.
2. After 24 hours, use a heavy-duty spoon to pulverize and squish the petals in the jar.
3. Add the distilled water to the jar and cover. Leave it to sit in a cool, dark place for four to seven days, taking it out once a day to mix and pulverize the petals.
4. After seven days, strain the mixture into one or two glass perfume bottles.
NOTE: Shake before each time you spray it, and keep your fresh perfume in the fridge.
If you have tried this before and have some tips or other recipes, please share with me in the comments below. I am so curious to see how this reacts to my body chemistry. I hope it smells amazing! Can't wait to try this one!

You're welcome @bluebear07 The great thing I saw online about making your own is that you are in control of scent, intensity and what products you put in it. I love it
This is soo cool!! I can't stand perfume cuz it makes me break out and the smells send me into a sneezing fit. Hopefully making it myself will eliminate all the extra chemicals they add and i won't react to it as badly. thank u!! 😄
Cards you may also be interested in
Cupid Countdown: Chic Love Story
Alright ladies, I wanted to share a card about dressing the part of your love story. And I'd LOVE to hear your love story, which you can comment on below, or even better, write a card about it! (YAY!!!!) When it comes to fashion, the basis of everything that we wear is utilitarianism--functional garments. However, that's just the beginning. The rest of it is based on style, beauty, trends, ideas, visions, goals and STORY. If you can believe it, we're not only well into 2016, but marching through February on a steady course. Two months in, with Valentine's Day peeking 'round the bend, what are you wearing to tell/attract your epic love story? When you interview for a job, you're told to dress for success; my contention is that we should be dressing for all areas of success in our lives. Are you looking for love? Maybe you're totally crushing right now. Are you dressing in a way that respects WHO YOU ARE while still telling your story? I put together this really cute #februarychic story board. It's about being fun, flirty, modest and love-story ready! GUCCI Plissé lamé mini dress $1,490 Gucci's mini dress is crafted from baby-pink lamé that shimmers with silver yarns - the plissé pleats add texture to create a high-shine effect. The classic shift silhouette is cinched at the center by an elasticated waist. The modesty of the neckline balances the length of the skirt. The glittering reflection of the lame gives this a flirty spice, while the soft color pink is delicate, feminine and Valentine appropriate. SAINT LAURENT Jane metallic lizard-effect leather sandals $695 Saint Laurent's signature 'Jane' sandals are updated in glossy rose gold lizard-effect leather. This Italian-made pair is designed with slim straps for a leg-lengthening effect. Virtually identical to the Stuart Weitzman Nudist sandal (that I LOVE), this is a modern approach to reptile as it has a pink-gold metal finish that is so hard to come by. It matches the dress without being matchy-matchy. And the open-toe sandal design is STUNNING! ROCKINS Flora printed silk crepe de chine scarf $29 The watercolor-inspired print that decorates Rockins' scarf pays homage to the botanical creations of Flora Starkey. This skinny style is cut from silk crepe de chine and finished with glossy fringing. Fringe may still be a by product of what was popular in 2015, but it's totally appropriate for this time of year as it adds a layer of modesty, femininity and "warmth" if his arms aren't already wrapped around you. The floral print says that you love all things pretty, especially flowers and wouldn't mind stopping by a sidewalk florist for a handful of posies. CHANEL No. 5 Perfume $100 Elegance. Beauty. Sophistication. And modern sensuality. Classic Chanel perfume fragrance that has stood the test of time and caressed the naked bodies of both women and men, vicariously. J. Lo said it best, "I judge people by how they smell, not what they look like." AMEN! Make sure you're hygiene is on point and your perfume is delicate, soft, yet punctuated with classic notes that tell YOUR STORY. Chanel may not be for you, but you should wear something that accents and works well with your body's chemistry. Wear just enough that he has to keep leaning in, closer and closer to get that intoxicating aroma. Too much will ward him off--doing the exact opposite of what you want. Now it's your turn! What does your wardrobe say about you? How is it working to tell your epic love story? What, about your clothes, is working against you? @BeannachtOreibh @nicolejb @ButterflyBlu @Arellano1052 @alywoah @jordanhamilton @MichelleHolly @VeronicaArtino @TessStevens @shannonl5 @humairaa @TerrecaRiley @danidee @BluBear07 @thePinkPrincess @EasternShell @matildajgarrett @1FallenAngel @alyssastano @Adrienpie @RaquelArredondo @Luci546 @BivianaaChavez @Lushisushi @Danse l @luna1171 @JPBenedetto @deefran @RogueLeigh @myguardian @Gacrus @MissB82 @Lizzeh @Kyokeo @Emealia @ShinigamiSan @baileykayleen @DestinaByrd @ChelseaAustin @xojuliettexox @netchtiBates @KellyOConnor @Kamiamon @parktaemi @arnelli @NickySerban @Dynamo @VKookie47 @medley24 @ZackMcLaughlin @MoisEsGaray @KeziahWright @pppfittu13 @washmydishes @eoin8899 @LAVONYORK @orenshani7 @Alletaire @funnella @MariPili @SamratGolhar @MajahnNelson @hikaymm @TensaZangetsu98 @carmaa10 @cindystran @AshelyJewell @MaighdlinS @JamiMilsap @xDaisyDaysx @LisaMarissa @Emmeronsage @LemarDeco @Ash1998 @TracyLynnn @KaiTakashima @saraortiz2002 @Zxenna @MelissaMae @atmi @Helixx @VanessaSimmons @JessicaChaney (MY APOLOGIES if I missed any guys--in taking them off this list!!!!!!!!!)

DIY Solid Perfume Balms
Did you happen to see the homemade perfume card I shared a week ago? You can see it by clicking here. However, this is a different idea where using perfume, you can create solid balms. This easy diy allows you to pour into moulds or into cosmetic trays. These would be perfect for camping, on-the-go and for cute gifts to your girlfriends. Supplies Needed: Beeswax Sweet Almond Oil (or another carrier oil such as coconut) Fragrance oils of your choice (Lemon, Sandalwood, Vanilla, and Lavender) Containers to hold your perfume (cosmetic trays, lockets, tins, etc.) Step 1. Recipe is always the same because it's based on ratios: equal parts beeswax and carrier oil. Start a small batch of 2 tbsp of beeswax and 2 tbsp of carrier oil. TIP: If you find your beeswax/oil mixture to be too thick once you are melting down, you can always add a little more oil as you go. Step 2. Get your perfume scent on point before you start the melting process. Make sure it's a subtle scent. A good rule of thumb is to create a scent that isn't so strong that it would prevent you from having a good night's rest. Start with 10-15 drops and increase from there. TIP: So much "smelling" may turn off your receptors, preventing you from smelling the fragrance. To reset your senses and start over, take a whiff of coffee beans. This will clear the scent from your head. Step 3. Prep your containers for hot wax. You want lids off and everything prepped and open. Step 4. Use a double boiler to heat your beeswax and oil on the stove. DO NOT MICROWAVE! Be sure to heat your beeswax on low/medium heat and stir as it melts down. Add your fragrance oil into the melted mixture once the beeswax is completely melted. Step 5. Carefully pour the hot wax into your containers. They will start to harden quickly. If they harden too fast, simply return to the double boiler and heat up. Let this set up and harden. Then you are able to slide it onto your skin for a silky perfume balm that will feel and smell amazing!

Boost the efficiency of your DIY projects using hand tools and power tools
Do you enjoy spending a lot of time in your garage or mowing your lawn? If you do, you're probably going to utilize a variety of equipment to complete these sorts of DIY tasks. Hand tools and power tools are two of the most popular DIY tools items that you will need to complete any DIY project to a high level of excellence. When used with safety equipment, power tools may help ensure a high degree of precision in DIY projects and can provide satisfying results. Hand tools, on the other hand, are the majority of hand-held instruments that do not require power to operate, unlike power tools. Wrenches, screwdrivers, and pliers are among the most often-used hand tools in DIY tasks. Power tools like air blowers, mitre saws, and rotary sanders are ideal for a variety of DIY tools, from auto repair to furniture building and kitchen renovations. Oscillating saws, for example, are excellent for cutting through panel flushes, which is generally impossible with other types of metal. When painting a cabinet or piece of furniture in your house, paint sprayers are ideal. These sprayers are ideal for painting cabinets in the kitchen. The advantage of these sprayers is that they deliver a finer paint spray, which reduces paint drips. Latex paint, oil-based primer, and water-based polyurethane may all be sprayed using these sprayers. It works well with oil-based primers when painted with thinner paint. What's more fascinating is that there are a variety of DIY projects where you may utilize both hand and power equipment at the same time. One of them is garage upkeep. Adjustable wrenches, hammers, and combination wrench sets are some of the most typical hand tools needed for a garage repair operation. Aside from this, a variety of additional hand tools, such as side cutters, wire strippers, a mallet, and vise grips, will come in helpful on a variety of occasions. If you just have a restricted budget, you can start making your own hand tools. Hand tools, unlike power tools, do not take up a lot of room and may be kept in a small area. The advantage of power tools is their capacity to complete a large amount of work in a short amount of time. They can also help you complete a lot of work that you would not be able to perform with hand tools. Cordless drills are one of the most effective power tools for completing hand tools to a high degree of precision. This tool may help you cut holes for drains, doorknobs, and bolts in a short amount of time, as well as polish your car when used with a polishing attachment. Circular saws and bench grinders are two more power equipment worth investing in. With the fast advancements in technology, there are several cordless versions of power tools available on the market. There are many of powerful yet tiny versions to choose. Despite the fact that hand tools are easier to use, newer versions of power tools are released on a regular basis. As a result, after you've decided on the specific tools you'd want to have, you'll have plenty of possibilities. So, when it comes to picking hand and power tools, what criteria will you consider? When choosing them, look for ones that are low in weight and have a small footprint. Choose well-designed equipment with finer grooves that fit well in your hands. The soft tissues of your hand will be less stressed if you utilize tools with short handles. Choose instruments that don't require a finger grasp. Instead, go with the ones that have a full-hand power grip. Sharp edges and pinch points on tools are typically dangerous to use since they can cut or squeeze your fingers while in use. As a result, even if you're wearing gloves, you should choose the ones that won't cut or pinch your fingers. This will make it easier for you to work with this equipment and complete DIY tasks quickly and efficiently.

Layered Scent DIY Candle
I try not to stop by Bath & Body Works when I hit the mall. The scent coming from the shop always tempt me to step in. And when I do, I step out with a few antibacterial hand gel, moonlight path body mist, and scented candles. The candles burn out fast and I get them replace more often than I should. Which is why I came to the solution of making my own scented candle. They require some time and work, but it's definitely worth it considering the time spent on driving and parking. In addition, these are fun to make for the holiday season. Materials: Soy wax flakes Crayons in assorted colors Small heat-proof jars Wicks Essential oils Instructions: 1. Choose the number of layers you want to create for each candle. Divide the wax evenly. I used about ¾ to 1 cup wax flakes per layer (so about ⅓ to ¼ cup per layer, per jar.) Remove the papers from the crayons and break into small pieces. Melt soy wax flakes and crayons in a pan. Slowly stir in 5-10 drop of the desired essential oil. 2. Adhere the wicks to the bottoms of the jars using a little melted wax. Wrap the wick around a skewer or toothpick to keep it centered. 3. Pour the first color layer into the jars. Let cool completely. You can speed up the process by placing them outside or in a cool place. 4. Repeat the process with more wax, crayons, and essential oils. To keep the new layer from melting the previous layer, it is helpful to let the wax cool slightly before pouring into the jar. 5. After the last layer is poured into the jar, let the jars sit undisturbed for several hours or overnight. Trim the wicks, top with the lids, and package up to give away.
5 Ways to Make The Most of Your Laser Hair Removal Treatment
Laser hair removal is one of the most popular treatments all over the world. The combination of experienced practitioners and cutting-edge technology can provide you with the best hair removal results for the various treatment areas. Here's how you can make sure you get the best results. 1. Begin with a consultation. During the consultation, you will meet with a dermatologist who will review your medical history, discuss treatment goals, explain how the treatment works, discuss the type of results the client can expect, and determine if the client is a good candidate for treatment. Consultations typically last 20-30 minutes. 2. Plan ahead of time Your dermatologist will advise you to shave the treatment areas before your laser hair removal appointment. Prior to treatment, do not wax any of the treated areas. Hair is removed from the follicle by waxing. The hair follicles in the treated areas must be intact for laser hair removal to work. The pigment required by the laser for hair removal is found in the hair follicle. If the hair follicle is not present, the laser will burn the skin rather than remove hair. If your underarms are one of the areas to be treated, we recommend that you do not wear any deodorant. 3. Set realistic expectations  Although laser hair removal can permanently reduce body hair, there is no scientific evidence that it can permanently remove ALL body hair. There is no such thing as permanent hair removal. Clients should not expect to be completely hair-free after laser hair removal. This is why the FDA refers to laser hair removal results as "permanent hair reduction." We have, however, seen incredible results where the hair is almost completely gone. The majority of you will notice a significant reduction in body hair. Hair that grows back after each session is sparse, fine, and lighter in colour. Laser hair removal reduces the amount of shaving you'll need to do in the future while also reducing the amount and thickness of the hair that grows back. After completing a full series of laser hair removal treatments, you will typically require one or two maintenance sessions per year to maintain results. 4. The Importance of Timing When the skin is least exposed to the sun, the best time of year to get laser hair removal is in the winter. For the majority of our patients, this occurs in the fall. Many factors will influence the best time of year for treatment. First and foremost, consider the client's lifestyle. Does the client spend a lot of time outside with their skin exposed? Second, it will be determined by how tanned a client's skin is. The more dark the skin, the less energy the laser can use for a safe and effective treatment. With the laser's energy decreasing, more sessions will be required to achieve the desired results for a client. Another factor to consider is the body part being treated. Laser hair removal on the face typically requires one session every 6 weeks to achieve the desired results. This treatment series can be finished in the fall/winter season. Laser hair removal in the neck to tummy area typically requires one session every 8 to 10 weeks to achieve the desired results. Laser hair removal on areas below the tummy usually requires one session every 15 weeks to achieve the desired results. It may take more than a year to achieve the desired results with laser hair removal on the lower leg area. It is important to note that the further away the body area is from the face and heart, the longer the healing time and the hair growth cycle takes. This makes receiving laser hair removal treatments more difficult during the summer months. The skin should not be exposed to direct sunlight for the best laser hair removal results. This is why, unless they don't mind staying indoors and covered up, most clients don't get laser hair removal in the summer. 5. Book Your Appointments Ahead Of Time Depending on the area being treated and the stage of hair growth, it may take several laser hair removal sessions to weaken the hair follicle enough that it does not grow back. A dermatologist may recommend that you come in for treatment once every 8 to 15 weeks to achieve the desired results, depending on the area of the body being treated. It's a good idea to pre-book all of their laser hair removal sessions and get them on their calendar at the start of your treatment plan. This not only ensures that you get your preferred appointment times, but it also helps you stay on track with their treatments and reduces the likelihood of missing a session. If you go too long between treatments and miss a laser hair removal session, you risk falling out of the hair growth cycle and needing more sessions.
어메이징 빅토리아 시대의 특이했던 면모들.jpg
영국 역사에서 빅토리아 시대는 1837년부터 1901년까지로 빅토리아 여왕이 다스렸던 시대를 의미함.  이 게시물에서는 빅토리아 시대의 특이했던 면모를 그린 만화를 소개하고, 설명을 덧붙이려고 함. 닥터 파니 시럽은 당시에 감기부터 콜레라, 이질까지 모두 치료할 수 있다고 광고된 유명한 "기적의 약"임. 아기들을 위한 약으로 광고되었는데, 성분에는 알코올, 모르핀, 클로로포름이 포함되어 있었음.  *클로로포름: 수면마취제로 유독물질로 분류됨. 클로로포름을 쓰면 부정맥을 일으키게 되며 호흡을 억제하게 됨. 호흡이 억제되면 심하게는 사망에 이를 수 있음. 실제 닥터 파니 시럽의 병 실제 신문기사 광고 "어머니들에게; 모든 아기들은 닥터 파니 시럽을 먹어야 합니다. 완전히 안전합니다. 아편과 합성 모르핀은 포함되어 있지 않답니다." 빅토리아 시대에는 죽음에 대한 집착, 그리고 잘 짜여진 애도 관습으로 유명한데 왜냐하면 사망률이 매우 높았기 때문임. 그리고 1839년 사진기술인 다게레오 타입이 발명되어 추모의 수단으로 사용되기 시작했음. 죽은 가족과 살아있는 가족이 함께 사진을 찍어서 추모를 한 것임. 보통은 누워서 촬영했지만 앉은 상태로 촬영하는 경우도 있었음. 사진은 매우 비용이 많이 들었고 노출 시간이 20분으로 길었음. (이것도 8시간 노출에서 많이 줄어든 것) 그래서 죽은 사람 뿐만 아니라 살아있는 가족들도 20분동안 꼼짝 않고 앉아있거나 서있어야 했음. 정신분석학의 아버지인 지그문트 프로이트는 코카인의 열렬한 신봉자였음. 프로이트는 코카인을 거의 모든 질병을 치료할 수 있는 기적의 치료제라고 생각을 했고, 환자들에게 처방했을뿐만 아니라 자기 자신도 코카인을 취했음. 일부 학자들은 코카인의 영향으로 오늘날 유사과학이라고 여겨지는 프로이트의 이론이 나왔다고 생각함 ㅋㅋ  *프로이트의 정신분석학을 유사과학이라고 여기는 학자들도 많다함. "코카인 좋아...." 오늘날 애들이 장례식 놀이를 한다면 굉장히 이상해 보이겠지만, 빅토리아 시대에는 장례식 놀이를 하는게 이상한 것이 아니었음. 이 놀이는 시대를 반영한 것인데 빅토리아 시대에는 사망률이 굉장히 높았음. 높은 사망률은 아이들이 조부모님, 부모님 뿐만 아니라 가까운 형제, 자매, 친구에게서도 죽음을 많이 목격할 수 있었다는 것을 의미함.  그래서 빅토리아 시대에는 작은 관과 상복을 담은 특별한 장례식 놀이용 인형세트도 제작이 되어서, 아이들의 장례식 놀이를 도와주곤 했음. 많은 빅토리아 시대 사람들은 "귀족적인" 창백한 안색을 가지고 싶어했음. 그래서 화장품 회사들은 비누, 로션, 파우더 등 다양한 제품에 비소를 첨가하기 시작했고 심지어는 웨이퍼 등 디저트류에 첨가해서 섭취하도록 권고되었음. *비소: 사약에 쓰이던 독약. 씨씨(Sisi)로 더 알려진 오스트리아의 엘리자베스 여왕(1837-1989)은 남다른 아름다움과 화려한 머리, 그리고 패션 감각으로 유명했음. 그래서 그녀 자신만의 미적 기준을 맞추기 위해 다양한 제품을 사용했음. 그리고 이 제품들 중 일부는 굉장히 특이한 성분들을 함유하고 있었음... *경랍: 향유고래의 머리 부분에 있는 저유조직(貯油組織)에서 얻은 기름을 냉각하여 고래 기름을 분리한 후 석출시켜 얻은 고형분 이 외에도 매일 저녁에 올리브 오일로 목욕을 했고, 미스트로는 갓 딴 보라색 꽃과 사이다 식초 등으로 만든 보라색 식초를 사용했다고 함. 그리고 건초로 만든 풀바디 스파 등도 즐겼다고 함.. 빅토리아 시대에 만들어진 말로 "Got the mobs"라는 말이 있음. '병적인'이라는 의미를 가진 형용사 morbid에서 파생된 추상명사로 "일시적인 우울감"이나 "(일시적으로) 몹시 슬픈 상태"를 의미함. 빅토리아 시대 말기, 패션에 대해 일가견이 있다하는 사람들은 모자에 특히 집착했음. 특히 깃털 모자가 유행했는데, 새의 깃털, 새의 머리, 새의 날개 아니면 동물 전체를 올려서 장식했음. 이 시기에 장식을 위한 새 수요가 매우 높아서 패신저 비둘기라는 종은 멸종까지 되었다고 함. 새뿐만이 아니라 다람쥐, 쥐, 고양이 등 다른 동물들도 모자를 장식할 용도로 쓰이기 위해 희생되었음... 1883년 뉴욕타임즈 기사에서 프랑스 패션에 관한 기사를 쓰면서 "고양이의 머리를 이용한 장식의 수요가 늘어나면서 고양이 사육도 정규 사업으로 발전하고 있다"라고 했음. (근데 고양이로 모자를 장식하는 일은 없었던 일은 아니지만 뉴욕타임즈에서 과장했다고 보긴 한대..)  셸레녹(綠)이라고 알려진 녹색 안료는 '비산구리(구리 비소)'라고도 부르는데 이름에서 알 수 있다시피 독성물질인 비소가 포함된 안료임. 하지만 빅토리아 시기에 셀레녹은 벽지부터 드레스, 장난감, 사탕에 이르기까지 모든 녹색 색상에 사용되었음. 왜냐하면 색깔 자체는 정말 독특하고 아름다웠기 때문임..... 근데 다들 알다시피 비소가 함유된 안료는 특히 소화를 시키거나 숨을 들이마실때 매우 위험함. 특히 셸레녹 벽지의 경우는 비소 가스가 방출이 되어서 다른 제품들보다도 훨씬 위험했다고 함. 빅토리아 시대 영국에서는 5시에 가지는 티타임, 설탕 소비, 식용 색소의 사용이 특히 보편화되었음. 근데 이것은 때때로 굉장히 위험해질 수 있는 가능성을 갖는데, 왜냐하면 알록달록한 티타임을 위해서 디저트에 사용하는 안료들이 황산구리(파란색), 비산구리 (녹색), 수은(붉은색) 등의 물질이었기 때문임.. 빅토리아 시대 사람들은 이 독성 물질들을 혼합하여 디저트를 위한 아름다운 색을 내는 방법을 공유하기도 했는데, 프랄린 등의 디저트때문에 많은 사람들이 심각한 병에 걸렸고, 죽는 경우도 많았음. 19세기에는 증기기관차가 등장했고, 대중들에게 큰 인기를 끌었음. 증기기관차의 등장은 사람들을 이전보다 더 멀리, 더 빨리 여행할 수 있게 해주었는데 신기하게도 여성들에게 위험하다는 인식(루머)이 있었음. 빅토리아 시대에 퍼져있던 잘못된 인식을 가지고 있던 어떤 사람들은 여성의 몸은 고속 여행을 감당하지 못해서 (80km/h) 여행을 하면 기절하거나 광기에 사로잡히거나 심지어 자궁이 빠져나갈 수 있다고 믿었음. 그래서 때때로 여성들은 증기 기관차로 여행하는 것을 포기했다고 함. 빅토리아 시대, 영국의 템즈강은 열악한 하수 시설로 악명이 높았음. 템즈강에는 런던에 사는 모든 인간들의 배설물, 공장의 폐기물, 도축 쓰레기들이 모조리 버려졌는데 19세기 전반에는 런던 인구가 두 배로 증가하면서 쓰레기 문제가 더욱 심해졌음.  원래는 '신선한' 물을 공급하는 중요한 상수원이었던 템즈강이 불쾌한 냄새를 풍기게 되었고 이 냄새는 정말로 참기가 어려웠다고 함. 특히나 더웠던 1858년 여름에는 "The Great Stink", 즉 "대악취"로 알려진 지독한 악취로 고통받았음. 그 전까지는 의회가 지지부진하면서 악취 문제를 해결하지 않으려고 했고, 사람들은 그저 향긋한 손수건이나 담배, 석회 등을 사용해서 냄새를 즉각적으로 가려야만 했음. 근데 1858년 여름에 정말로 참을 수 없는 냄새가 영국 전역을 덮자 그제서야 영국 의회는 템즈강의 하수시설을 정비하기 시작함. 그래서 2개월만에 악취 문제를 해결할 수 있었다고 함. (현재의 템즈강) 빅토리아 시대에 인기있었던 약 중에 하나가 "RE-ANIMATING SOLAR TINCTURE"라는 약이었는데, 이 약의 효능은 "갑작스러운 죽음으로부터 살아날 수 있음"이었음. 그러니까 자살, 발작, 추락, 질식 등의 모든 죽음을 경험했을 때 이 약을 마시면 (이 약과 신체가 적절하게 작용한다면) 살아날 수 있다고 광고했음.  지금 생각하면 약장수 이야기같지만 빅토리아 시대에는 사망률이 높았기 때문에 이 약이 팔렸다고 함. 솔라 팅쳐를 제작한 시블리 박사(Dr. Sibly)는 루너 팅쳐라는 약도 만들었는데, 이 약은 성관계가 부족할때, 너무 잦은 성관계를 했을때, 월경이 심할때, 임신이 안될때, 폐경이 되었을때.. 사용하면 효과가 있다고 홍보했음. 효과는 전혀 없었을 것이라고 추정... 빅토리아 시대에는 장례식에 상복 베일을 착용하는 것이 여성들에게 인기를 끌었음. 길이는 약 6피트 정도이고 검은색 크레이프로 제작이 되었는데 불행하게도 검은 염색 안료의 일부가 상당히 독성이 강해서 가볍게는 발진부터 심하게는 호흡기 질환까지 다양한 질환을 일으켰음. 빅토리아 시대에 과부들은 특히 만1년간 크레이프 베일을 쓰는것이 예절이고 관습이었기 때문에 더욱 더 심한 위험에 노출이 될 수밖에 없었음. 나폴레옹이 이집트를 정복한 다음에 파리로 개선 행진을 했는데, 이 때 이집트 출신의 기마병들인 마멜룩 부대가 나폴레옹을 호위했음. 그 영향으로 이집토마니아(Egyptomania)라는 이집트 문화 열풍이 파리를 휩쓸었음. (맘루크 부대라고도 부름) 이집토마니아의 유행으로 고대 미라를 관찰하거나, 미라 등에서 찾은 보물들을 훔치거나, 미라의 신체 부분을 "기념품"이라고 가지는 이벤트들이 영국 곳곳에서 열렸다고 함. 현대의 일부 학자들은 실제로 유행처럼 일어났던 현상일까라는 의문을 제기하고 있긴 하대... 하지만 적어도 한 사람은 이런 종류의 이벤트를 즐겼던 것이 확실한데, 영국의 외과의사인 토머스 페티그루(Thomas Pettigrew, 1791-1865)라는 사람은 이런 종류의 수집에 빠져있어서 미라를 이용한 파티같은 걸 많이 열었다 함.  <허클베리 핀의 모험>, <톰 소여의 모험> 등의 소설로 유명한 미국 소설가 마크 트웨인(1835-1910)은 제인 오스틴을 엄청 싫어했다고 함. 마크 트웨인 친구인 작가 윌리엄 하웰즈 (William Dean Howells, 1837-1920)는 제인 오스틴을 제일 좋아했는데, 친구가 제인 오스틴을 좋아한다고 하니까 친구 앞에서도 제인 오스틴에 대해 욕을 했음.  사실.. 마크 트웨인이 제인 오스틴에 대해서만 욕을 한 건 아니고 워낙 많은 사람에 대해 욕을 했지만......... 제인 오스틴 덕후 앞에서도 제인 오스틴 욕한 것은 너무 심한건 아닌가 생각을.. 😢 토마스 덴트 뮈터(Thomas Dent Mütter)라는 의사는 화상 환자들과 기형으로 태어난 환자들에게 도움을 주는 많은 기술들을 개발했음. 필라델피아에서 에테르 마취제를 투여해서 수술한 첫번째 의사라고도 함. 그리고 화려한 스타일로도 유명했음. 이것은 시대상을 반영한 것이기도 함. 빅토리아 시대 남성복의 기본적인 특징은 깔끔하고 베이직한 라인, 어두운 색, 디테일이었는데, 짙은 녹색, 검정색, 회색 등의 색이 유행했음. 이 시기에는 여성들의 옷에서 코르셋이 유행했던 것처럼 남성들도 코르셋을 입었는데 후기 빅토리아 시대로 가면서 재킷이 루즈하게 변화함. 그리고 탑햇을 썼고 모닝코트, 이브닝코트를 번갈아가며 입을 정도로 남성 패션도 화려한 양상을 띔. 빅토리아 시대 전후에는 대금욕의 시대라고 해서 남성이 패션에 신경쓰는 것을 탐탁치 못하게 보았지만 빅토리아 시대에는 남성들도 패션에 대해 많이 신경쓰고 깔끔하게 꾸미는 것이 미덕이었음. 빅토리아 시대 사람들은"책 공포증"이 있었음. 특히 1880년에서 1920년 사이는 일반 대중들이 "도서관의 책이 전염병의 원인"이라는 생각을 굉장히 많이 가지고 있었음. 후기 빅토리아 시대의 많은 미국, 영국인들은 도서관 책이 결핵에서 천연두에 이르기까지 다양한 질병을 퍼뜨릴 수 있다고 생각했음. 그 결과 도서관에서는 책을 소독했는데, 이 때 사용했던 소독 방법은 석탄산 결정체의 증기를 책에 쐬는 것, 포름알데히드(..)를 이용하는 것이었음. 그리고 만약에 아픈 사람과 접촉했다면 그 사람이 가지고 있던 책을 완전히 파괴하기도 했음.  빅토리아 시대를 다룬 영화나 문학 작품으로는  셜록 홈즈 테스 작은 아씨들 북과 남 위대한 유산 등이 있으니 빅토리아 시대에 대해 관심이 생겼으면 한 번 보는 것을 추천함! 책은 무서워했지만 비소는 무서워하지 않았던 빅토리아 시대 사람들......... 출처: https://veinityfair.com/ 2차출처 : 더쿠
How to Make Sure Your Neck Never Gives Away Your Age
Your skin care routine is flawless, and your face has never looked more vibrant and glowing. But then you look down to see it - your neck. Your neck, which is frequently affected by wrinkles, bands, and sagging, is one of the first and most visible parts of the body to show signs of ageing. Even using your regular skin care routine on the neck does not always appear to help with these issues. So, what are the best methods for combating and smoothing these age-related fine lines? Surprisingly, the face and the neck are linked; however, the ageing of the neck is slightly different. There are several reasons for this, one of which is that the skin on the neck is extremely thin. It is vulnerable to sun damage. But what distinguishes the neck is that it moves; the neck is a joint, just like your elbow or knee. And we develop creases over our joints over time. Normal skin ageing causes collagen and elastic tissue to break down, which accounts for neck wrinkles and sagging. This typically manifests itself around the mid-20s, and it is exacerbated in those who have had increased exposure to sunlight and pollutants such as cigarette smoke. These creases and bands on the neck have gotten worse in recent decades as a result of a condition known as "tech neck," which is caused by looking down at electronic devices for long periods of time. Neck bands become worse with neck movement, such as moving the neck up and down. They also get deeper when you hold your neck in a downward position while browsing on your phone or working on your laptop. Is there a way to prevent neck ageing? The best solution is to prevent sagging and wrinkles from forming in the first place. It is always easier to prevent damage than it is to repair or rejuvenate it. Sunscreen This product is your best line of defence against wrinkles and other signs of ageing. When choosing a sunscreen, look for one with an SPF of 30 or higher. Sun damage accelerates the appearance of ageing on all parts of the body. Do you already apply sunscreen to your face? Apply the same skin care routine that you use on your face to your neck. Antioxidants Another method of prevention is to use topical treatments and creams containing antioxidants. Ingredients such as vitamin C and E, can help reverse the effects of sunlight and pollution. They also stimulate collagen, reduce fine lines and improve skin elasticity. Retinols Retinols are also beneficial in combating the signs of ageing. If you have sensitive skin and are concerned about the strength, choose a cream that contains Retinyl Palmitate, a ProRetinol that is mild enough for most people. When it comes to stimulating collagen, retinoid creams are an excellent choice. Diet What you eat can also have an impact on how our skin looks. A diet high in antioxidants and low in sugar helps to prevent collagen damage. Weight fluctuation has a significant impact on your neck. If you have a history of yo-yo dieting, this will contribute to neck laxity. The most effective neck wrinkle treatments If you've already developed these unsightly wrinkles and sagging, it may be time to seek treatment. Here are some examples of dermatologist led options... HIFU Ultherapy, which uses ultrasound, penetrates deeper into the skin's layers than creams, stimulating collagen at the deeper layers and preventing sagging neck. Lasers Non-ablative fractionated resurfacing lasers, such as Clear and Brilliant or Fraxel, can help improve your skin's texture. MNRF All radiofrequency microneedling devices stimulate collagen and elastic tissue, which aids in the treatment of horizontal neck bands. If you choose this procedure, keep in mind that it will necessitate multiple treatments. Injectables Another option for filling neck bands and horizontal lines is injectables. Dermal fillers do not treat muscle, but they can help to smooth out fine lines and plump up the skin on the neck, giving it a more youthful appearance. Botox is preferable for bands and neck cords because it softens their appearance by relaxing the muscle.
