Abstract

The first Shaker herbal businesses began in 1821 in Harvard, Massachusetts, and New Lebanon, New York, out of both necessity and opportunity. The Shakers became highly respected in the medicinal community, and they earned a level of trust that remained unrivaled throughout their existence. In this paper I will compare medicinal preparations from manuscript recipe books compiled at the New Lebanon and Groveland settlements.
