Apothecary Collection

17th century apothecary jars were filled with all sorts of natural ingredients such as herbs, spices, salts and insects, which were harnessed by local physicians to treat common ailments.

Explore the scents and remedies of Early Modern Edinburgh by browsing this beautifully selected range of hand crafted soaps, ingredient books and home décor. Each product pays homage to the locals and apothecaries who once trusted in herbal remedies to fumigate illnesses as familiar to us as the common cold, as well as historically infamous diseases as virulent as the plague.
