Apocathry

All things Medicinal!

We discovered some quite chilling facts and sobering thoughts, when we first began collecting our medicinal artefacts. From the horrors of the Dentists Chair ,to the quite literal use of arsenic and other gory additives in a huge array of everyday creams and lotions. Risks, what risks??? With very little that was taboo, the world was your oyster for the discerning apothecary. With no one worrying over ingredients and misleading claims, why, they could cure any and everything - all we needed was the money to afford it. We have quite a collection of old toiletry and Medicinal items, some still containing the remnants of their original contents, although we would not suggest trying them out! But if you are wanting to recreate the ambience of the old bathrooms and bedchambers, they can really add charm and originality.
