Historically used to house medications, elixirs, herbs and the like in the 1800’s, Apothecary cabinets were the common use in the absence of drug stores. Some cabinets even had nailed, or secret compartments storing poisons and hard to find spices.

Whether you fill with drugstore remedies or at-home created potions, our Apothecary cabinet is built to create a storage display for one’s washroom needs.

Mindful of the moisture and humidity within washrooms and areas apothecary objects would live, we have built our cabinet and caddies using reclaimed antique Cypress. Cypress produces its own preservative oil, it is naturally impervious to decay and rot, and is resistant to splitting and warping.
