Before the existence of pharmacists, apothecaries dispensed medications and healing treatments. They prepared the various ointments, creams, decoctions and drugs of the era with medicinal plants. An apothecary worked in a store, and sold his own masterful preparations. Apothecaries appeared in Antiquity and disappeared during the nineteenth century, following the obligation to obtain a diploma from the Pharmaceutical College, and the ban on selling medications outside of pharmacies.
