Since I'm hometrained and haven't had any professional training I don't have the proper equipment to condition my body to withstand blows, and possibly damaging my shins when I'm doing my own kicks. Any tips?

Yeah. You have two options:
1) Join a gym that has the proper equipment and training.
2) Join a club that has the proper equipment and training.

What do you need to withstand blows from? You don't have any sparing partners.
Human Weapon suggests you kick banana trees to strengthen you shins. If you have no banana trees in your area, my instructor (from my gym) said to roll a bottle or broom handle up and down your shin. He also suggested wearing a mouthpeice to do it and have two guys hold you down while a third rolls the bottle on your shin.

Or you can pay a homeless man to soccer kick you in the shins until you don't feel anything.

Just kick a heavy bag. Get yourself down to a gym as well.

I will agree with Who either get a bag or go to a gym if you have the option. I do mostly self training.
