Scents, Spices + Glass

Dreamy scents in beautiful apothecary glass bottles for the home, commercial settings, or  Christmas gifts!

We’ve been to two London-based suppliers to create these beautiful scented spice jars. Handcrafted glass from HSF Flint & Co. and natural things from G. Balwdin & Co.

While the botanicals already have a scent of their own, we’re adding layers with a few of our favourite spice, floral + citrus oils – dreamy, intriguing pimento leaf, frangipani and ylang ylang flower, dashes of cinnamon, black pepper, and orange.

Get in touch if you’d like us to make you one! The apothecary jars come in 4 sizes, from 1L to 5L. We’ll have a few of the smaller ones at the stall on Chatsworth Road.

Layered Dried Spices in Apothecary Jar

Layering dried spices in the 5L apothecary jar (35cm high x 19cm diameter). So far we’ve put in senna pods, dried orange slices, and cinnamon sticks. Still to come: bay leaf, hibiscus sabdariffa (sorrel), pimento and cracked nutmeg. Already it smells beautiful, and you can add more scent by simply drizzling scented oil over the layers. The scent can be controlled also by using the airtight lid when you don’t need to release any scent.
