Haven't tried this yet, but placing here for safe keeping. This is a recipe to help keep your kids regular! You will also need 1/4 pound powered senna. ('Zaar isn't recognizing it as an ingredient!)


  1. Grind figs and prunes very fine and mix together.
  2. Warm the molasses.
  3. Stir senna into honey/molasses thoroughly.
  4. Take the senna and molasses that has been mixed together off heat and put in figs and prunes.
  5. Stir well.
  6. Dosage: Begin with 1/4 teaspoon every night before bed. It's a maximum dose of 1/2 teaspoon per day. DO NOT EXCEED THIS MAXIMUM DOSE!

Found this when I was looking up senna.... Don't use senna powder or tablets for more than two days at a time because the herb can weaken your bowel muscles. Avoid senna if you're pregnant or nursing.
