An apothecary was a medical professional who prepared and dispensed medical material and substances to physicians, surgeons, and patients. Nowadays we refer to them as pharmacists or chemists. An apothecaries' study and investigation into ingredients, was a predecessor to those in the modern chemistry and pharmacology sciences. They also offered a range of general medical advice and services, which are now performed by surgeons and obstetricians. Our apothecary themed bottles and jars are reminiscent of those found in apothecary shops, these shops sold ingredients, prepared medicines to sell wholesale to other medical practitioners, and dispensed them to patients.
The word apothecary is late Middle English via Old French from late Latin apothecarius, Latin apotheca, and Greek apothēkē ‘storehouse’.
