Keeping a well-stocked natural home can be a challenge, but online shopping makes things so much easier!

The following products are items that I personally use and/or recommend wholeheartedly. My affiliate links and referral links are included when available. You can read my full affiliate disclosure here.

Essential Oils

As an herbalist and aromatherapist, one of the most frequent questions I get is in regards to essential oil brands. The short answer is that there are many quality essential oil brands available. The long answer can be found in my book, Essential Oils: Separating Truth from Myth. I personally use or can recommend the following essential oil brands as options to consider:

  • Florihana (available through Tropical Traditions; watch for free shipping coupons!) is a French distillery and also my top choice for therapeutic purposes because of their extensive certifications. Most of my essential oils are from Florihana.
  • Plant Therapy is doing great things with a growing line of certified organic oils, carrier oils, accessories, blends, roll-on bottles, hydrosols, and more. Free shipping on US orders.
  • Mountain Rose Herbs offers a great selection of certified organic essential oils. Because GC/MS testing isn’t as readily available, I prefer these oils for less therapeutic purposes, like cleaning and light air freshening.
  • Hopewell Essential Oils carries a very large selection of high-quality essential oils at some of the best prices around. Shipping isn’t free, but you may save a substantial amount of money regardless. This small, Christian family-owned business also provides excellent information.
  • Eden Botanicals offers an extensive catalog of premium essential oils, hydrosols (distilled botanical waters), extracts, carrier oils, diffusers, and aromatherapy accessories. They specialize in bulk and wholesale options, but now offer quantities more appropriate for the home user.
  • Nature’s Gift is a well-respected aromatherapy supplier among herbalists and aromatherapists. Domestic orders ship free over $50, the selection is extensive, and the site is filled with excellent aromatherapy education.
  • Rocky Mountain Oils offers great blends and roll-ons, along with a small assortment of accessories. Many of their oils and blends come diluted in a carrier oil, so be sure to read ingredients before buying. GC/MS reports are available. Free shipping on US orders.

Herbs & DIY Ingredients

Home herbal DIY projects are so fun! And herbal medicine can be an excellent first line of defense, or a great supplement to, conventional treatments and pharmaceuticals.

  • Mountain Rose Herbs is my favorite source for bulk herbs, but they also offer wonderful carrier oils, butters, extracts, teas, and more. It’s a simply delightful online store!
  • Starwest Botanicals offers a similar selection as Mountain Rose Herbs, though product sizes are more limited. You’ll find herbs, essential oils, natural body care ingredients, extracts, and more.
  • Bulk Herb Store also offers excellent herbs, many organic. Their selection isn’t as extensive as Mountain Rose Herbs, but they run fantastic sales from time to time.
  • Frontier Co-Op is another option, and might be extra convenient because they are available on Amazon. I prefer MRH or BHS, though, because the herbs tend to be fresher.

Herbal Extracts and Dietary Supplements

As an herbal practitioner, I’m able to offer you professional-grade supplements through my Fullscript dispensary at a 15% off discount on retail prices.

Excalibur Food Dehydrator


A food dehydrator may not be a must-have, but I use it a lot in the spring, summer, and fall when drying my herbs. I have a big stainless steel, 9-tray Excalibur (the gold-standard of dehydrators) which I love, but you can also find more moderately priced options on Amazon, like this one.
