Base Recipe: 
What you will need:
  • 1 cup molases 
  • 1/8 cup honey preferably Raw Wildflower if possible optional 
  • 4 tablespoons of herb or herbs(in total) in powdered form 
  • 1/2-3/4 cup flour preferably fresh ground 
Directions:  

1. Add 1 cup of molasses to a medium sized sauce pan. Heat over medium heat for five to 10 minutes, or until the molasses is thoroughly warmed. Heat gently, and do not allow it to boil or bubble.
2. Add 4 tsp. of Herb or herbal powder combination in total to the molasses. Stir well to incorporate the powder throughout the mixture.
3. Add ½ cup of flour to the molasses mixture, and stir in thoroughly. Continue adding flour, a few tablespoons at a time and up to 1 cup total, until a thick, workable paste is formed.
4. Remove the dough from the pan and place on a flat surface, such as a countertop or cutting board. Shape the licorice candy dough into several long tubes, about ½-inch in thickness and 6 inches in length.
5. Roll the licorice candy tubes in icing sugar and place onto a cookie sheet to dry. Wait one to two hours for the candy to harden, and then store it in a glass jar or plastic storage bag until ready to eat.
Also have some extra herbal powder handy to powder the licorices so they do not sick to everything and dry out more naturally.

Warning These are very addicting and good so you may definitely may want to consider making extras and hiding them.
I made a nutritional snack licorice out of anise and chamomile and ate nearly a whole cookie tray in just a few days. AND ENJOYED EVERY MOMENT and was very relaxed those days.


Herbal and nutritional Powder Substitutes Combinations:
Note: These are only a few to get you started
Medicinal Licorices Chamomile Anise: ( a great and healthy relaxing snack! 3 tablespoons of organic chamomile powder or fresh chamomile flowers ground to a powder. I use a electric coffee bean grinder. You can get these inexpensively in a super market. Eliminate the anise seed powder if you have blood pressure problems add slippery elm bark in its place.
 Sore Throat Combo: 1 tsp of each. Licorice root, wild cherry bark, marshmallow root slippery elm bark. The herbs wild cherry bark, Licorice root,and marshmallow root help with the soothing of the sourness and the slippery elm bark gets to the root of things by providing nutritional supplementation. Nutritional Supplementation Licorices Note: When using grounded bee pollen wait until step one is complete and off the stovetop and to a only warm temp. then add the bee pollen so you do not kill the important enzymes with excessive heat.  
Nutritional Combo: 1 teaspoon of each bark, bee pollen, alfalfa 2 tablespoons of Slippery Elm Bark. Nutrition as Food  

Licorices: "Survival"
These licorices provide optimal nutritional suplementation through vitamins, minerals, and through the use of supper foods. You should try hard to add the raw wildflower honey to this recipe; Simply remove 1/4 cup of molasses from the base recipe and substitute it with 1/4 cup of raw wildflower honey. What the difference especially in taste!!!
Combo #1 1 teaspoon of each bee pollen, spiruilla,cholera, wheat grass, barley grass, slippery elm bark powder, Apple Cider Vinegar powder, Dandelion, Cobo # 2 ( for natural energy Safely not like those booster type drinks) 1 teaspoon of each bee pollen, Royal Jelly, bee propolis, 2 teaspoons of each: Spirulina, Chlorella, Wheat grass, barley grass, slippery elm bark powder. Apple Cider Vinegar. Dandelion
 
In another post soon I will talk about nutritional survival bars made similar These bars are fun and inexpensive to make with a nutritional supplemental and survival value that blows the other stuff away. AND is 100 % pure and natural.  

Cold and Cough Syrup

I.           This is a easy and simple Syrup that is made with ingredients you may already keep in your kitchen. Its effectiveness is very quick and lasting. Believe it it's mostly in the Properties of the Onion and the enzymes in the herbs and honey. I use this a lot when I get a cold I make a small batch. and through more research.
II.  I found another Trick with onions.
If you do not sleep well and or have difficult breathing at night try this. take a fresh onion cut it in half put it on a plate and near the area you sleep close by. This will act as a natural air purifier/detoxeifier. and you should feel great when you wake up in the mornings. I got this from a book called the School of Natural healing centennial edition By Dr John R. Christopher 


Ingredients:
1 cup freshly chopped onion

About 1/2 cup raw honey

Plus any of the following (optional):
1 tsp. Cloves (whole or powdered)- specifically good for pain relief

1-2 Tbsp. Comfrey or Slippery Elm (dried or powdered)- Comfrey is particularly good for healing, and Slippery Elm has more of a reputation for soothing and coating the throat

1-2 Tbsp. fresh chopped Ginger root OR 1 tsp. Ginger powder- Ginger increases warmth, circulation (important for healing) and the overall effectiveness of the syrup

**You can include all of these optional herbs, but at a maximum of 2 Tbsp. extra herbs total


Directions
Put chopped onions and any herbs of choice into a small stainless steel or glass pot (not alumnimum). Add enough honey to cover the onions ( for me, this seemed to be about 1/2 a cup, though I didn't measure exactly).

Turn the pot on low heat and slowly simmer. The honey will soften and become liquidy, and you want to keep the temperature very low while allowing the herbs to steep in the honey. It's best to keep a lid on to help keep all of the medicinal properties of the herbs in the syrup, and just take the lid off to give it a quick stir every few minutes to ensure it doesn't burn at all (though the temp. should be low enough to prevent this).

Give it 20 minutes of simmering, then remove it from the heat. Strain the onions and herbs out and store the remaining honey (which might have flecks of herb in it and this is fine) in a small glass jar with a lid and keep it in the fridge.

The syrup can be used as often as needed, up to every half hour. Here are the dosages:

1 tsp. for a younger child

1 Tbsp. for anyone 10 years and older

While we're on the topic of using onions medicinally, I thought I should mention another use I learn yesterday. A commenter said that when her children are sick, she puts chopped onions in a small bag around their neck when they go to bed and in the morning, they wake up well. First I had ever heard of it, but I've heard stranger things. Wouldn't you know it that later yesterday, as I was reading about onion in the book, I read that breathing the fumes of an onion will help with congestion from a cold or other illness!

Since both Johanna and I have been plugged up lately (her more at night, me all the time) I decided to chop a large onion into chunks and put it in a bowl on the night table near where we both sleep. I couldn't quite bring myself to actually put it in bed with me, but I could still smell it, for sure! Well, last night was the best sleep I have had in a few nights and the first time that I woke up without feeling all plugged up! Three cheers for the onion!

Cayenne 1/8 tsp for heat diaphoretic
