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!)

Ingredients Nutrition


  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.
