Random Photography: A Matched Set.

You may not think of spice jars and medicine cabinets as being related, but it continually fascinates me that the same conditions we treat with medications were once treated with herbs, spices, and other natural things.  Fennel root was once used as birthcontrol. Avacado pits were a primitive IUD.  Even up until early last century, people were primarily advised to make dietary changes (the dreaded cod liver oil) to treat and prevent disease. Penicillin was made from mold. The medicine cabinet isn’t so far removed from the spice rack, it’s just time and packaging.
