According to Mary Joe Clendenin, greasing the throats of the bottles helps the spirits slip into the bottles a bit easier. In addition, bottles were hung from fruit trees to protect against thieves, since the bottles would cause the thieves stomachs to explode from the stolen fruit they had eaten. Lastly, blue medicine bottles were hung from trees in Memphis, Tennessee, during the outbreak of yellow fever in 1878 to keep the outbreak from entering their homes.

The Natchez Trace
Used by merchants that used the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers would take the Trace back up North after traveling down the rivers. Stands run by Native Americans were allowed until the 1830s. The most predominant Indians to use the trace were the Chickasaws. Many bottle trees existed along the trace, in the 19th century, and into the 20th.
