I’m working on some yummy new recipes and fun new printables to share with you this week, but for today I wanted to pop in to tell you where I’ve been finding many of my supplies for the simple home remedies I’m learning about.
It’s important to note that the ingredients needed for making home remedies are pretty simple. The hard part for me has been knowing exactly what to do with them. I knew lavender was good, but what to do with it? Bath salts are healing, when used how? And on it goes.
Now that I have my collection of resources all put together in my Home Remedies Binder, I can easily reference it to know what I need to do. (The notebooking printables for this are free for the grabbing, so go do some grabbing.)
The basic supplies I currently have on hand I’ve listed here.
- A collection of essential oils to use daily as we need them. I always have basics like peppermint, lavender, eucalyptus, and lemon, plus combo bottles that are blended for aid in digestion, for headaches, and an immune booster. (It’d give you the names of these combo bottles, but every company calls them something different.)
- Bags of dried eucalyptus, red raspberry, lavender to make teas or baths
- Epsom salt
- Pre-made tea bags (to make life easy) – peppermint, immune booster, red raspberry
- Apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, onions, oats, fresh ginger root
- Herbal salve
Where to buy supplies to make home remedies
There are hundreds of online sources for buying ingredients needed to make home remedies. I’m only listing a few here, because these are the places I’m purchasing from right now as I build my “medicine cabinet.”
They offer great products at great prices!
I order my vanilla bottles through this company, but how silly that I haven’t ever looked at their herbs before. Well, shucks, I didn’t really know what to do with them, I guess. But sure enough, Mountain Rose Herbs carries a big supply of herbs. Go figure.
iHerb doesn’t carry much in the way of loose-leaf herbs, but they do carry a nice variety of vitamins and supplements if you find something you’d like to order ready-made. They also offer a $5 coupon to new customers and free shipping on $20+ orders, so that’s pretty sweet!
I needed to order a few food items anyway, so I ordered some pre-made tea bags recommended in the books so I’d have these on hand for when I need them. Nice and easy! (New customers can get a $10 coupon to use on their first order – details here.)
