The History of the Apothecary's Origins
Once upon a time, in a public health era that now seems impossibly remote, there existed a world where narcotics were freely available at any time and place. In this era, apothecaries utilized those exciting druggists who precisely blended plants and minerals, sometimes with the addition of animal fat or earwax, to cure their fellow man’s ills.
Traditional usage of the word "apothecary" encompassed both the drug manufacturer and the drug dealer. Apothecaries, though staples of fantasy cultures, were not supernatural, magical individuals that possessed secrets of great worth.
Legends of an Old Communities Healer

The Sumerians of ancient Mesopotamia created the earliest credible record of herbal treatments more than 5,000 years ago. Over 250 different plant species were represented in the medicine concoctions carved into clay tablets.
The Vedic writings and the Ayurvedic (the science of life) traditions of East India are rich with descriptions of edible herbs and their uses. Charaka 800 B.C and Sushruta 500 B.C were two of the first Ayurvedic herbalists to document the use of the plant, mineral, and animal preparations. These early formulations, or herbal mixtures, were used to create therapeutic prescriptions.
