This Day in History: March 6, 1899

On this day in 1899, the Imperial Patent Office in Berlin registers Aspirin, the brand name for acetylsalicylic acid, on behalf of the German pharmaceutical company Friedrich Bayer & Co.

Did you know...
Aspirin, the most common drug in household medicine cabinets, was originally made from a chemical found in bark from willow trees.

Here are a few fashion to function cufflinks that are a must have for anyone who has ever gotten an ache.

This ingenious rhodium plated cufflink has a screw-down lid which once removed reveals a handy compartment for storing a headache pill. The lid itself is milled to mimic the shape of an aspirin.

The Covert Pill Holder Cufflinks resemble a pair of black bordered locket cufflinks. But once opened they feature something much better than a picture! Sized for a round aspirin, these cufflinks look chic and hold relief! The perfect combo.
