Alchemy is the best combined with Herbalism, with these two you can save a lot of gold because you don't have to buy the herbs from the Auction House. Check out my Classic WoW Herbalism leveling guide 1-300 if you want to level herbalism.
The materials are based on a case that you will gain one skill point each craft. This won't happen, so you will have to buy a few extra materials while you are leveling your Alchemy.
If you are still leveling your character or you just started a new alt, I recommend using Zygor's 1-60 Leveling Guide. The guide is in a small window on your main screen in-game. All the detail that you need to complete the quest is included.

Approximate Materials Required:
There are a lot of yellow recipes used in the guide which means you won't gain skill points every single time. I added 10-20 extra herbs for most of these recipes, but it's still possible you will have to get a few more if you have the worst luck.
