Chamomile[1].jpg (1324 bytes) Syrups

There are many syrup formulas but the most popular one mentioned in the Cayce readings is Syrup of Figs.

In a pan place 10 finely sliced dried figs, 1 1/2 cups of water, 4oz rice syrup, or brown sugar, juice of 1/2 a lemon and 1/2 tsp. of ground ginger.  Simmer for 1/2 an hour.  Blend in blender and bottle and store in fridge.

marjoram_0[1].jpg (1119 bytes)   Elixirs

In Cayce's day,  elixirs were made by mixing a tincture or extract of the substance with a sweetened half and half mixture of water and pure grain alcohol, usually with coloring and/or flavoring extract added.  The ratio of substances varied but were usually around ten percent of the overall result.

marjoram_0[1].jpg (1119 bytes)   Essences  

Also in Cayce's essences were made by adding the oil extracted from the substance to pure grain alcohol.  The oil would have been 10 percent of the total;  that is, to 1000 milliliters of pure grain alcohol,  add 100 milliliters of oil.

Food Recipes

The following piece from reading 1045-8 really grabbed my curiosity as I had never heard of yogurt being made from honeycomb! An exhaustive search through books and the internet turned up nothing.  So I decided to experiment with honeycomb at home, and discovered that one can truly make yogurt from honeycomb that is superior in texture and flavour.   Thank you Cayce.
Yogurt is a preparation from honeycomb, you see.T1045-008 F [Pg 2]

Our recipe:

To 3 cups of boiled water that has cooled to 95F or 35C, add 2 cups of full cream powdered milk and two large tablespoons of honey in the comb.   Stir well.  Cover and wrap container with a towel and place in a warm spot (must be between 95F/35C to 110F/46C) for 12 to 15 hours.

Castile Soap Recipe

This is the quick easy method for making Castile soap.  Always remember to keep children away while you are making the soap. Naturally, take sensible precautions for yourself as well!

   500 gm Olive Oil
   200 ml water
   70 gm Caustic soda
Boil all ingredients together until mixture drops thickly from the spoon.  Use a rather large vessel (I like to use a waterbath) and stir frequently while boiling.  Pour into a tin or shallow box lined with a damp cloth.  Allow to dry for two days then turn out and cut into blocks.   Harden well before using. 

Following are some Cayce readings that mention Castile Soap.
16. (Q) What soap, manner of cleansing, creams and makeup would be least harmful and most helpful in correcting the beautifying the skin?
(A) Pure Castile soap [See 2072-6, Par. R19] is the better as a cleanser. As a cleansing cream or the like, the Genuine Black and White products are nearer to normal. T2072-006 F [Pg 2]

10. For making or keeping a good complexion, - this for the skin, the hands, arms and body as well, we would prepare a compound to use as a massage (by self) at least once or twice each week.

11. To 6 ounces of Peanut Oil, add:
Olive Oil.............2 ounces,
Rosewater.............2 ounces,
Lanolin, dissolved....1 tablespoonful.

12. This would be used after a tepid bath, in which the body has remained for at least fifteen to twenty minutes; giving the body then a thorough rub with any good soap to stimulate the body-forces. As we find, Sweetheart or any good Castile soap, or Ivory, may be used for such.

13. Afterwards, massage this solution, after shaking it well. Of course, this will be sufficient for many times. Shake well and pour in an open saucer or the like; dipping fingers in same. Begin with the face, neck, shoulders, arms; and then the whole body would be massaged thoroughly with the solution; especially in the limbs - in the areas that would come across the hips, across the body, across the diaphragm. T1968-007 F [Pg 2]

As for wash, preferably this would be done with those OILS - rather than acids or alkalins. Such as an olive oil shampoo, using as the cleanser for same that of the PURE castile soap.  T0255-010 F [Pg 2]

An interesting reading given for blackheads:  

Then, for these on face and neck - well that there be made local application first of a warm Turkish towel; not hot, not steaming, but warm Turkish towel, wet, and let it remain on for eight to ten minutes. Then rub thoroughly with pure Castile soap. Then put on COLD cloths for one to two minutes, until three or four are applied. Then PAT the skin very thoroughly with the hands, until the circulation in neck and face is thoroughly established again. Do not use creams or powders while this is being applied, that will fill up pores again. If there is the necessity for making the skin more smooth, then use magnesia - or cornstarch AND magnesia, which is the better for ANY skin. Or, when there is more preference to use the talc, or powder, use the pure talc with magnesia and balsam of tolu in same - or ZINC and tolu in same.  T1101-003 F [Pg 1]


From reading 658-2

16. (Q) What is the best shampoo to use in cleansing the hair
before the use of tonic?
(A) Plain castile is the BEST to be used. Castile shampoo,
see, will add a lustre - of course, would be well if a few
drops of olive OIL is added in the water, not in the hair.

From reading 658-5

This would be prepared with a combination, and this would be the MANNER of combination:
With that of the pure castile, as is dissolved, see -
dissolve same, then add to this that of a twenty percent
solution of the soap weed - see? Now we are preparing, of
course, a vegetable compound again - but with this would be
prepared, then, with each gallon - that is, of the shampoo,
see, or soap as is being prepared - as may be kept in the
liquid form, or it may be congealed in the form with that of
the soap, as in Castile - see? This added with olive oil,
and with those of the bay rum, IF kept in solution - do not
add the rum if NOT in solution, but would congeal activity,

8. (Q) How much olive oil would you suggest?
(A) The olive oil with this, for the gallon, would be four

9. (Q) What kind of weed is this suggested?
(A) Soap weed. This may be obtained in any chemist shop,

10. (Q) Under the name of just soap weed?
(A) Under the name just soap weed.

11. (Q) What effect has bay rum on the hair?
(A) Cleanses it, with the alcohol content acting as a
stimuli for the growth of same, see, as does the acid #2
prevent the drying or the brittling of the hair, see, with
its combination with the other; while the acid #1 acts as an
altering of the lobes or in the epidermis or in the skin
itself, as to prevent streaks or coloration showing too often
close to scalp, you see.

12. (Q) What effect has sage tea on the hair?
(A) That's the coloration, see, that strikes through, see -
as does that of the COMBINED action of the acid makes same
pliable, soft, and easy for the coloration as carried in
same to be helpful - see?
