Purchase your own preferred sweetener. Choose from the following:
Honey - Raw honey is the preference of many herbalists. It contains enzymes, pollen residues (anti-allergy), and is a natural preservative. It is warming, calming and moistening, as well as soothing to GI and respiratory tree.
Sugar – Warm and moist, raw cane sugar (like rapadura or sucanaut) is preferred to its refined step-sibling. It is outstanding as a preservative. Refined (organic is best) can also be used in a pinch, especially if you don't consume a lot of sugars in your diet.
Molasses – Mineral-rich sweetener, this substance is the concentrated minerals removed when processing cane sugar. Great for a nutritive syrup and a vegetarian diet supportive, as it is high in B-Vitamins, etc. Shorter shelf-life as a syrup.
Maple Syrup – Also contains minerals, and may be local to some areas of the north. Beloved “healthy” sweetener which offers a more nutritive sweet than some others.

This is so convenient in the dropper format. It’s perfect for being able to just add to whatever you are drinking, or to take a little on the go. I’m loving the benefits of mushrooms for menopause and I add this formula to a ginger, tea that I drink first thing in the morning.
I keep a larger bottle of the Kid's Not Sick and a smaller bottle of the Kid's Got Sick on hand for my 2 year old who is in daycare. This last week, my toddler and his friend from daycare both come down with a virus that started with a high fever and morphed into cold symptoms. I started giving Kid's Got Sick right away and his fever lasted less than 24 hours, unlike his friend who ended up with a protracted fever (few days) and rash. I am so impressed.
This sleep tincture is The Best. It works as it says in the description - helps you fall asleep and go back to sleep quickly if you do happen to wake up. I am a family herbalist myself, but I don't bother making my own sleep medicine, because why mess with perfection?
