A Tour around our Home Apothecary

Welcome dear friends,
As we are always adding to our little "apothecary" I thought I would show you what it looked like a about a year ago. Since then I have added quite a few new items to our  medicine chest as well as my 'first aid kit for the car'.

As I had some new herbs arrive yesterday I wanted to show a before and after and how we use some of these medicines in our home.

I thought some of you may be interested in seeing our Home Apothecary or "The Little House of Healing" as Vellvin and Rogan named it.

It has been a very exciting venture to be able to grow in this area of Natural Healing for my family.
I have been interested in natural remedies since I was a young girl but never had the opportunity to access the ingredients.

Since moving here I not only have access to supplies but I am also  gaining much knowledge to use as well.
Amazingly enough in this house was a room that was simply a 'nothing room' that I was able to convert to our Home Apothecary.

So on with the tour! I will simple list what is on our shelves and guide you through ☺
