Merz Apothecary

I am currently obsessed with this little apothecary in the Lincoln Square neighborhood of Chicago. I stumbled upon it recently and my jaw hit the floor. This European store has been in business since 1875, and is complete with a hand-carved wooden exterior, leaded glass windows, parquet floors, tin ceilings, solid oak cabinets and the store's original antique pharmacy jars and herb containers. They carry quality natural medicines and treatments as well as luxurious European soaps and body products. You can read the complete history of this family owned business here and puruse their amazing selection here.
