Belladonna Puppy Eyes

In the Italy during the Middle Ages, what women thought to do to attract husbands was making their pupils as big as possible to have that oh-so-desirable lost and sad puppy look. To achieve that they started dropping the juice of Deadly Nightshade, also known as Belladonna, into their eyes. Belladonna is quite poisonous if ingested, it also resulted in blindness from extended use. Yikes!!
