How The Lunar Apothecary Works
What You Need for The Lunar Apothecary
In addition to a curious and an open heart, I suggest having a dedicated notebook for your studies that can be used for your journal prompts, formulation experiments, ritual notes, case studies, and general note taking. I also suggest having a large three inch binder to contain your print-outs for the course.
As for herbs, besides sustainably wildcrafting or growing your own, I suggest checking out local herb farms, farmers markets, and apothecaries. My favorite online seller of herbs in the United States is Mountain Rose Herbs. Having a variety of glass jars with air tight lids will serve you well for storing your herbs and subsequent remedies that you'll be making in the course. Create space in a dark and cool cupboard to store them and you'll be all set.
Not much more is needed. Perhaps a cutting board and knife for processing fresh herbs. A large bowl for mixing. A mortar and pestle or coffee bean grinder for grinding them. Spoons for stirring and measuring. A scale for weighing (if you want to do a weight-and-measure version of medicine-making). I've found as someone who has run an herbal remedy making business that I've always needed less supplies than I originally thought. Get creative with what you have, value tools that have multiple uses, and make purchases conscientiously.
