DIY: Homemade Honey Barakah Drops

Alhamdulilah I have been sharing on Traditional Muslimah Homemaker about DoTerra Essential oils and how much we enjoy them mashaAllah. I saw this awesome recipe using one of my favorites!!! Good timing too as so many are getting sick, subhanAllah may Allah heal them all and protect us ameen ameen

One of my favorite oils from DoTerra is Onguard. MashaAllah I was given this oil as a gift from a friend.

Why do I love it?

Well that particular oil is a combination of different oils, all helping that combat against colds, the flu. and known to kill harmful bacteria and mold.

And yes you can take these oils internally, naturally everyone should research more, ask questions, consult those you may need to and determine for oneself. This is not to take the place of medical advice but offer and suggest different aids in healing mashaAllah

So are you ready to make these awesome cough drops?

You will need:

2 cups sugar, we used pure sugar cane
1/4 cup butter or ghee
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup water

And 3-5 drops of DoTerra's Onguard

You combine all the ingredients EXCEPT the Onguard in a pot and cook on low near medium heat, until it reaches a hard crack stage, thats about 300 degrees

Heres my thermometer :

It tells you when the food is at hard crack stage, but if you dont have this type just know its 300 degrees

During the process, you can place a spoon of it in cold water and it threads then you stop it.
I waited until it reached hard crack stage then I stopped it, let it cool for a minute and then added the doterra oil to it.
After that I poured the honey onto a greased cookie sheet. Once I could handle it, i begin to twist them like ropes
Then after twisting them like ropes, . and then I quickly begin to cut them (because remember it gets hard quick as it cools )


And they were yummy, but of course we stored them in a ziploc bag and intend to use them sparingly inshaAllah.

The Passing Of A Prince

One month later...  If you would have told me, that I would be eventually blogging as a widow, I would have probably said that I couldn't imagine it!

Well here I am, writing as a widow. My husband (may Allah have mercy on him, and grant him jannah ameen ameen) passed away last month, December 20th, 2016, from complications from his condition.  My whole life changed and I am learning to heal and process this tremendous loss with our six children.

I met my husband in 2006 mashaAllah, and as I like to tell people, I started this adventure 10 yrs ago when I met a Prince from Kings County (Brooklyn NYC) married him, and became his princess alhamdulilah. When we first met, I felt like "wow this handsome guy, I cant believe he is even giving me the time of day." Lord knows I am thankful for all the time of our days, our road trips, and adventures.

I think of an old status message I shared on facebook
" I've dedicated ten years of my heart to this loveable adventurous g…

5 Ways To Love Your Husband MORE

I had to blow the dust off the blog tonight, as I only write when I am feeling inspired. SubhanAllah, tonight feels like a good night to share a few thoughts on the blog.
How can you, love your husband more?

1.) Speak words that will uplift his spirit. I remember when I would be feeling nervous, and anxious about some event, and my husband (may Allah have mercy on him, ameen) would say encouraging words, that made me feel like the most confident woman in the world. We have the ability to be that voice of encouragement in our mates lives. What mountains we cannot move, when our spouse speaks life into our being! Through out the day, speak to your mate in a way that will help them be better. 
2.) Put your love into action: Yes you can say "I love you" all day long, but adding to that by doing loving gestures, show and prove what we feel inside. Surprising our spouse by writing a love note, or sending a loving text, adds a little more joy to their days. In a world where there …

Praying For Your Husband

Good morning world,

This morning I felt inspired to write a few words, in prayers that it will benefit you all out there. One of the best things we can do for our spouse is to pray for them.

What is so awesome about prayer, is that God understands what we are saying, knows what we want to say, and no matter if its aloud or deep within our heart... He knows, He understands and He hears us.

Even as a widow, one of the things I continuously do, is pray for my late husband (rahimahullah)


Pray for God's guidance, husbands have a lot of decisions to make. Their role as the leader of the home is such an important role, that God's guidance is for sure needed. When praying for your husband, pray that God guides his decisions, his steps. As wives, one of your duties is to encourage him to pray too, gently remind him that with God, there is success. Every move we make, should be in a direction God is pleased with.

Pray for their health and safety- the world today is not the easies…
