An apothecary is no mere medicine cabinet; it holds the stories and healing signatures of gathered herbs.
An apothecary is no mere medicine cabinet; it holds the stories and healing signatures of herbs gathered from local wildlands, cross-country travels, and gardens. The medicine in its bottles is much more than roots, leaves, and bark. It’s the essence of fields and forests, birdsong and butterfly kisses, babbling streams and fertile dirt, sunshine, and cool afternoon breezes.
Are you curious about how to start a personal apothecary of your own?
After years of teaching, running a clinical practice, and raising a family, I’ve found that some herbs are universally beneficial for the personal medicine chest. These are medicinals with a high safety profile that are generally affordable and easy to source. Additionally, their uses are so versatile you’ll have plenty of choices to reach for when minor health complaints arise.
