a person who prepared and sold medicines and drugs.
In Middle English, apothecary originally meant a person: "a shopkeeper, especially one who stores, compounds, and sells medicaments." Modern usage and Ballast Pointe in particular have “reclaimed” the term to reflect a place selling delightful fragrance products such as soaps, diffusers, room sprays, lavender bunches, salves, balms and lotions. Scents awaken emotions of serenity and remind of relaxing times past. Unique home items—vintage jars & bottles, antique bowls & pitchers, beakers, ceramic glove forms—even a stunning wooden wheel chair, excite the imagination.
