Offered is a rare, ONE OF A KIND set of early 1900s Apothecary Bottles w/ Herbs from the ALEMEDA DRUG STORE, DENVER COLORADO.

Each 5.75 inch high clear glass bottle sports a paper label with the name of the contents typed in.

The bottles are in fine shape with ground glass stoppers in place. The labels are in very good condition with crimps, stains and mild edge loss as expected with vintage bottles that have been used. This set should be in a museum!

The first bottle, MYRRH, historically was used as incense and as a powerful medicine. During the early 1900s, it was used as an astringent, antiseptic, anti-tussive, and anti-spasmotic to name a few.

The second bottle, contains SANGINARY ROOT and has a colorful history in Native American folklore, often being used as a medicine for sore throat, cough, or to be applied as body paint.

The 3rd bottle, LYCOPODIUM, is known as a homeopathic remedy and was noted as being very effective in treating hernias. Today there are nearly 20 maladies claiming benefit from lycopodium.

The 4th bottle, Powdered STRAMONIUM, has been a key ingredient in the treatment of breathing ailments such as asthma from the early 1800s to the 1950s! It is still used under the trade name Atrovent.
