Keeping your snuff and other powders in a special Snuff Bottle can be an excellent idea. It’s possible that long exposure to air can dry out your snuff and it can lose its potency. Snuff bottles and other containers should be airtight so there is no possibility your snuff will waste away. Some Snuff Bottles are small and carry about a days worth of snuff. Sometimes they are designed to be carried on a keychain or in a pocket. Larger containers for keeping your snuff safe at home are popular to reduce the possibility of misplacing your snuff, but also to protect from damage or simply to keep away prying eyes.
