How do you store your herbs?

This is the apothecary cabinet my hubby made for me, I am running out of room, so he is planning on tearing this one apart someday and enlarge it maybe. It took me months to collect bottles or buy at Amazon and more time to make all the labels,.,.Everything is from A-Z and easy to find. I really need to more more kinds of herbs, seems always needing something I don’t have.

Hubby made it- we are tearing down an old building on our property so the wood comes from a building about 100+ yrs old. It was the right size at first but now is overflowed into my bookcase.

Ohhhh @roxanne this is amazing!!! :heart_eyes: I am in awe- not just of the gorgeous cabinet your husband made, but of your delightfully eclectic collection of beautiful bottles! Does each one have a different herb/spice inside? :herb: You have so many!!! :star_struck:

It’s my dream to have an herb cabinet like this someday :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

My apothecary/herb cabinet still looks the same but got an overhaul 3 days ago. I wanted it deeper so I could put more herbs in…and hubby was able to take the door off, add 6 inches all around with the same wood and put the door back on…you would never know it was added on to…so all my shelves are a full 12 inches now… lots of room!

I have a small shelf hanging and then 2 display cabinets in my room. 1 use for jars & altar objects that need to be stored and the other I am going to put my glass jars with herbs in them. I try to use glass jars for the herbs or in some cases the actual package that they came in until I can find the right jar. I have them labeled with a basic meaning on the label so I know what they are used for. I also have sheets in my BOS with the meanings, other names, and substitutes. I do have a jasmine plant in my house too, but we keep that in the kitchen.

Your herb collection sounds very organized, @Krissie117! :star_struck: It looks like you put a lot of thought into planning the system. I just have a small space in the apartment for my herbs right now, but someday I’d also love to have a special apothecary space for them :herb::blush:
