As you complete the assignments for the Herbal Stress Management for Fall class you’ll be creating DIY Herbal Remedies using herbs or essential oils. The following supplies will help you craft the recipes included in the course.
I have included my recommendation for sources of supplies to help you find what you need for the class.
I recommend that you glance at the recipes before you order supplies and decide which ones you plan to make. You will not need ALL the supplies on this list. Many of the projects in this course have several alternatives to choose from. So do check out the recipes in the course before you order supplies.
Two essential oil suppliers that I trust because they include independent laboratory testing results for each batch of essential oils that they sell are Rocky Mountain Oils and Plant Therapy. Look over the projects that you want to complete for the course and only order the essential oils for those projects. You won’t need to order all these essential oils to complete the course.
5 ml of each of these Essential Oils
- Balm mint bush essential oil
- Fir needle essential oil
- Frankincense essential oil (Boswellia carteri)
- Geranium Bourbon essential oil
- Grapefruit essential oil
- Lavender essential oil
- Roman Chamomile essential oil
- Spearmint essential oil
- Tangerine essential oil or sweet orange essential oil or mandarin essential oil
Dried Herbs, Flowers, and Spice
You’ll want a 3 ounces (100 grams) to 1/4 pound of each of these dried herbs and 60 grams or 2 ounces of the powdered spices to complete the projects. You may already have some of these in your pantry. If you need to purchase supplies I recommend Mountain Rose Herbs or Starwest Botanicals for quality, organic herbs and spices. Starwest Botanicals herbs are available on Amazon. Only order the herbs and spices that you will need to complete the projects that you’ve chosen to make for the course. You won’t need to order all of the herbs and spices on this list.
