Ties in to a fantastic new four-part BBC series from the makers of the hit Victorian FarmShows how many products on sale in our high street chemists today can trace their origins back to nineteenth century formulationsFull of fascinating facts, remedies and recipes to try at homeVictorian Farm sold over 40,000 copies (Nielsen Bookscan figures)

This is the story of consumer medicine - how high street healthcare emerged in just 50 years and how we still rely on hundreds of formulations and products that can trace their origins back to the nineteenth century.

Sun cream, treatments for insomnia, dandruff or warts, perfumes and soaps are all as important today as they were 100 years ago and are stocked by the local chemist. Accompanying a major new BBC series, this book takes a look at which products were on offer, whether they were effective, and how we still make use of them today.

Providing hints, tips, recipes and remedies to make at home, and fascinating historical background, this book shows that while the names of products on the chemist's shelf have changed over time, our hopes and aspirations as consumers remain much the same as our Victorian predecessors.
