These are two glass medicine bottles and three cardboard boxes, dating from about 1895, used to package Mother Mary Joseph Aubert's herbal remedies. The two bottles, each with a cork stopper and a large label on the front and sides, contain 'Paramo', a remedy for liver and kidney complaints, and 'Karana', a general tonic. The boxes are labelled 'Paramo', 'Karana', and 'Wanena', and contain treatments for cuts, bruises and wounds. The labels and one box have blue printing, while the other two boxes are orange and yellow-brown. They all have printed text, for example, 'Mother Mary Joseph Aubert's, Wanena, Registered 1894, Prepared only and exclusively by herself under her supervision, Price 2/6, This Preparation is purely vegetable'. The bottles are 11.1 cm and 11.9 cm in height; the 'Paramo' box measures 15.0 cm x 5.6 cm x 3.5 cm, the 'Wanena' box 14.7 cm x 5.7 cm x 3.5 cm and the 'Karana' box 15.0 cm x 5.7 cm x 3.5 cm.
