Re: Bathory bathing in blood
OK. Weird topic (sorry, my opinion.) Anyway, there are many herbs and plants that have anticoagulant and anti-platelet properties. In fact, patients on blood thinners are usually advised to avoid them. For example: garlic, turmeric, capsicum, cloves, ginkgo, dong quai, feverfew, to name just a few. Garlic oil was once reportedly added to lab samples to delay coagulation for blood testing. Doesn't seem like an additive for bathing however. A number of Materia Medica have existed since the early Egyptians, so the information would have been readily available at the time.
