Episode 7

Nick Barber gathers meadowsweet, an ancient painkiller, with herbalist Eleanor Gallia before going into the lab to extract salicylic acid from willow bark to make the Victorian version of aspirin - producing a treatment for warts and corns along the way. As diversification in the pharmacy continues, Nick, Ruth Goodman and Tom Quick turn their hands to making their very own brand of perfume. But will the public try it?
