About an Apothecary

Ancient Medicine

 The most famous physician of the ancient times, Hippocrates (460-377 BC) was the first to release medicine from any kind of religious superstition and to establish it as a science based on observation and case recording. Source: 

Hippocrates most famous quote "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food."  Along with the Hippocratic oath paved the way for medicine as a science.

Aristotle (384 BC - 322 BC) later made all things living into two classes - plants & animals.

The Essence of a Plant

Lately you have probably heard of 'Essential Oils'.  The name is misleading but the essence of a plant is what they are talking about and the best illustration of that is the Aloe Plant.  We put on burns, drink during Chemotherapy and so forth.

Concentrated Nature

These oils are concentrated from the part of the plant that contains the medicinal property, whether it is the root, bark, seed, fruit /nut or leaf.  One drop of oil is equal to 100 cups of tea!   

Our remedies work by absorption through the skin with these concentrations.  SO ALL OF NATURE'S BEST CAN RELIEVE.
