TRADITIONAL SMELLING SALTS CONTAINERS : WOLF & LAMB
DESIGNED TO SUBTLETY CONTAIN A SMALL AMOUNT OF SNIFFING SALTS.
Smelling salts have been used since the Roman times and are mentioned in the writings of Pliny as
'Hammonicus sal'. Evidence exists of use in the 13th century by alchemists as 'sal ammoniac'.
In the 17th century, the distillation of an ammonia solution from shavings of harts' (deer) horns and
hooves led to the alternative name for smelling salts as spirit or salt of hartshorn.
Smelling salts have also been known as 'sal volatile', for their ability to produce a reaction.
They were widely used in Victorian Britain to revive fainting women, and in some areas constables would
carry a container of them for the purpose.
The use of smelling salts was widely recommended during the Second World War, with all workplaces
advised by the British Red Cross and St. John Ambulance to keep 'sal volatile' in their first aid boxes.
Nowadays, their use and prevalence has dramatically decreased.
This is a reboot of the tradition specially commissioned for the burning man festival.
