What do I need to have a natural medicine cabinet?

Nothing gets me derailed faster than not having the supplies I need on hand. Plus, when we’re talking about natural remedies, you want to be prepared because inevitably that upset stomach or achy ear happens in the middle of the freakin’ night, right??? So how do I stock my natural medicine cabinet?

While this natural remedy supply list is far from comprehensive, it’s a start.  And if you can’t get everything at once, get a few things at a time until your home apothecary or natural medicine cabinet is well stocked.  It took me quite a while to accumulate all the supplies I have. We’ll probably add a Part Two to this post with things we recommend once you’ve added these basics to your collection.

With the supplies on this list, you’ll be all set for healing salves, sprays, rollers for all kinds of natural remedies. Not only that, but you’ll be able to mix up green cleaners for most every cleaning need AND you’ll be set for many different personal care projects as well. This list definitely goes past the natural medicine cabinet and helps you as you live a more natural, holistic(ish!) lifestyle. 

Check Amazon, Bulk Apothecary, and Starwest for a lot of these products. If you have a Lidl or Aldi’s nearby, they are a great source for grapeseed oil. Big Box stores often carry avocado oil. I posted Amazon links to products I’ve purchased and have liked the quality of.
