Title Essence of Limonis apothecary bottle
Description It is a clear class bottle with a glass cork. On the front of the bottle there is a label that says Ess. Limonis, which is Essence of Lemon. This label has a bit of damage to it, but the letters can be clearly read. On the back there is a label near the bottom. It seems that it is something the pharmecy would have added because it has oz and lbs and how much it would have cost for it. A person could have had it for 20 cents, 3 for 35 cents, 3 for 50 cents. It seems that the number was changing. Lemon is known for treating scruvy, and has Vitamin C. Although, there doesn't seem to be much medical use for lemons besides that, it was also used for flavoring food.
