A New Diary Snipet From Fancy Free

A snippet from Alicia’s collection of condom notes:

Practitioners of German folk medicine considered lavender, parsley, and marjoram potent contraceptives. People thought teas brewed from the seeds of fruitless trees had contraceptive qualities and that women who drank the tea would be childless too. Popular opinion held that willow bark tea acted as a contraceptive and made women sterile. Seeds from wildflowers like Queen Anne’s lace—which really is a potent contraceptive—were also popular oral contraceptives. The odor of camphor taken via the nostrils was thought to castrate men. Camphor is actually a natural aphrodisiac.
