As I have progressed through my educational journey with herbs and essential oils, I have begun to build my own natural medicine cabinet and also shared those recipes with you. I have organized the many natural health recipes that I have written over the last couple years so that you can find what recipe you are needing for whatever your ailments might be. As I post more health related recipes, I will update this and add in those links as well, to keep you up to date with whatever remedy you might be trying to find!

    Do you ever use the company Plant Therapy for your essential oils? They claim to have 100% organic therapeutic grade oils but are less expensive than Mountain Rose and I can get free shipping thru Amazon. I want good quality but trying to keep the cost down especially for oils like Roman Chamomile. Thank you. You truly are a wonderful resource. Many of my Christmas gifts this year are coming straight from your DIY recipes!

    • Christina

      yes! When MRH is out of something I actually buy Plant Therapy! Robert Tisserand (the author of Essential Oil Safety and the leading guy on testing and safety with essential oils right now) actually just took over overseeing their essential oils this last summer so that really made me decide to start purchasing from them as well! I love plant therapy!

  • Joelle

    So many wonderful ideas to try. Can’t wait to get started. I’m looking for a source of witch hazel with no alcohol. I noticed that in your easy shop you advertise your products with witch hazel are alcohol free. The Mountain Rose company’s witch hazel is low alcohol but not completely free. Do you have another source for that product? Thanks.
