What is an apothecary?
The medieval apothecary was the ancestor of the modern general practitioner. In medieval Europe individuals selling wine, spices and herbs were known as apothecaries. They prepared and sold remedies to the public.
What are your hours?
Due to COVID 19, we have had to reduce our hours open. We are open Wednesday-Friday 11AM-4PM and Saturday 11AM-2PM beginning May 6 until further notice. We must limit 3 customers in the store at a time and we are following all CDC guidelines.
Do you do consultations at the shop?
Although we have a wealth of herbal knowledge, we do not give consultations at the shop. Emelia’s staff members do not give medical advice. The information you receive at Emelia’s is for educational purposes only and is not intended as a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. Always seek professional medical advice from your physician or other qualified healthcare providers with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition.
Are herbs safe?
The medicinal actions of every plant are unique. The chemical constituents within an herb can be contraindicated for an individual when used with other medications. The safety and effectiveness of herbal medicine is best understood under the guidance of a certified herbalist, naturopath or health care professional. That said, there are many herbs that have been used safely throughout the ages in households around the world by people who are not trained herbalists. You are the advocate for your own health.
Where can I find out about the classes?
All information for classes can be found under the Events tab on our website. We book all of our events through Eventbrite. Click the link of the class you would like to register for and it will guide you through the sign up process. You may also register for classes in store. Class participation is typically limited to 10 so you may want to register early to guarantee your spot.
Where are the classes held?
Classes are held at the shop unless specified otherwise. We are at 350 Main Street Suite #A right off the Pinellas Trail. We are just North of Cafe Alfresco.
Do you offer private classes?
We may be able to accommodate your request for a private class depending on educator availability. We require private classes to have a minimum of 10 paid attendees. Please contact us for more information.
What is the cancellation policy for classes?
Refunds will only be given if your registration is cancelled at least one week (7 days) before the class. This allows us to offer your reserved spot to other interested guests. Please call the shop at 727-281-4497 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to cancel.
What are 2nd Fridays?
2nd Fridays are offered by the Dunedin Downtown merchants every second Friday of the month. Many shops stay open extended hours into the evening and offer sales/specials/refreshments. Come visit us every second Friday from 5-8:30pm and check out our Facebook page for specific deals and offerings for each 2nd Friday.
