Starting A Home Apothecary: What Do You Need?
**<center>You've grown your herbs. You've dehydrated them. _Now_ it's time to start making tinctures, salves, lotions and other items for your home's medicinal apothecary. But what supplies do you need aside from the herbs, plants and flowers?</center>**

<center>![apothecary.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmTyuHu8q87QJztM5zTwoKC1hB1JtK7wcPgWxF1M6AybK5/apothecary.jpg)</center>
**<center>Some of the supplies you'll need.</center>**

* Brown glass bottles (with and without droppers)
* Essential oils
* Cooking Pots or small slow cooker
* Glass bowls
* Glass jars
* Cheesecloth
* Wooden stirrers (I use chopsticks or a wooden spoon)
* Notebook- to keep track of when you've made certain salves, lotions, tinctures or what _each_ one is used to treat
* Mortar & pestle and/or coffee grinder
* Scale (one that measures ounces, grams, pounds and kilograms) I paid $10 for the one in the image above two years ago
* Metal tins or other small containers
* Beeswax, alcohol 80-proof, carrier oils
* Labels
* Measuring spoons/cups

**What's nice is that more than half of these items can be found at a thrift store for _much_ cheaper than new.**

The pot/small slow cooker, glass bowls, measuring devices, coffee grinder; just to name a few can be purchased second-hand. _No need spending a fortune on pots or other items specifically needed for cooking herbs and other plant based concoctions._

<div class="pull-left">https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmRCsWx38RkcosfxYjkR169riCVibHJtxnXFCoheDPvQk7/apothecary2.jpg</div> 

**Having a variety of essential oils, harvested and dehydrated herbs and flowers are _must-haves_ to start a home apothecary.**

When buying essential oils, check to see which scents are recommended for _what_ ailments and uses.

**Don't buy an essential oil scent _just because someone else has_. Buy what you will use.**

<div class="pull-right">https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmVZRvd6twdo5bBQPnN8v4dWWABapwPexJQiQKM6MP9h5E/scale.jpg</div> 


**This scale is one of the best investments I've made in the last few years.**

I originally bought it to weigh cannabis and its trim for baking, but soon found myself using it for packaging items I sold on eBay and Etsy as well as for measuring items and ingredients to make soap, lotions and more.

It weights things in kilograms, ounces, grams and ounces and even pounds. _Definitely worth the money to have on hand._

In China, herbs have always been left behind by ancestors, they can be combined through different characteristics, can treat a lot of diseases, as well as Chinese acupuncture therapy, China is a very old country, if you need, I can provide you with a lot of prescriptions!And the way it's made.

China has a lot of important information about this.
I live in Korea and have some local doctors I can visit here. We call the natural medicine 'han-yak'

Boiled water with brown sugar and ginger

Relieve menstrual and abdominal pain
Drink a bowl in winter morning and warm all day
In China, girls do this.
