This post focuses on the drying herbs seen hanging from the ceiling in the French Apothecary Shoppe of Master Raymond seen in Season 2 of 'Outlander'.
In his shop we also see items such as racks, scales, mortar and pestle, and other essentials necessary for the weighing, measuring, packaging and sale of herbal preparations.
Shown below is a collection of vintage period antique balance scales for the weighing of smaller lightweight items such as dried herbs and spices.
Some are calibrated working scales and others are just for decor. One is even a decorative planter. There is also a distressed vintage historical French replica scale depicted.
Also shown is a book on drying herbs as well as a steel ceiling herb hanging rack. A granite mortar and pestle is also shown used in the preparation of herbal concoctions and to grind and prepare dried herbs.
To package dried herbs, there is also a selection of small kraft paper bags and a couple of 'old-fashioned' cast iron Telkin twine and scissors sets with stand and pair of shears.
Just click on a photo below to see a larger image, and to find out how to get any of these useful and unique apothecary-themed items:
