It’s a bit of pain when it comes to spelling out email addresses but there is a reason for it. The word ‘apothecary’ is an old term, stemming from the ancient Greek word ‘apotheke‘, meaning barn or storehouse. However, it later morphed and apothecary became more commonplace in the English language as a derivative of the old French ‘apotecaire‘, meaning someone who ‘stores, compounds, and sells medicaments’. As such the word ‘apothecary’ is synonymous with herbal medicine – the fundamental on which all of our products and services are based.
