I’ve had an idea swirling around in my head for a while now. I wanted a place for all my natural herbs, tinctures, salves and soaps, etc.
I just didn’t have the cabinet… or so I thought.
So one night when I was laying down, I was thinking about where I could find a cabinet on a budget. The next morning I realized I had the perfect cabinet in my bathroom.
This little cabinet… I purchased this cabinet long before I was married or had become a mother. I found it at a local antique shop and since I knew the lady who owned the shop she kindly let me put it on layaway. Being young and broke, even though it wasn’t all that expensive, layaway was the only option.
A few weeks later it came home with me, and has been in each room of the house at one time or another I believe.
It now graces our kitchen and dining room area as my apothecary.
We carried it out of my bathroom and cleaned it up a bit and began stocking it with herbs and oils and soap-making supplies.
Soap-making…an adventure that is coming soon!
Once soap is made, I have a little drawer in the cabinet that I plan on housing the final products til time of usage or gift giving.
And then, in the bottom two cabinets, I can store the items that are not as lovely to see. Stick blenders, soap making pots and bowls… and the like.
