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 )

Here: 

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…

As salamu alaykum To The Struggling Wife

As salamu alaykum to The Struggling wife....





You are the heart of the home. You are his support, his cheerleader, and he needs you to be by his side. Do you know how important you are to him and to your home?

You are worth more than you know. It may not be said often, but without you... Life would be a little more difficult.

I know you're struggling right now to be a better wife and I know you want to do better. Don't put too much pressure on yourself.

Keep asking Allah to guide you in becoming a better wife. Realize that you have a lot of worth and your husband knows it, he married you, he knew you were the woman who could make his life better.

Write down what you can do to make your marriage better and focus on that daily. He put you with this man, that you love, that you decided to marry. You made a commitment, and you said "I am his committed helper." so keep going! Yes it's not always easy, sometimes you want to leave... But you are a strong, praying woman. …

Remember Who Your Husband Is

On the eve of our 9th year anniversary, I'm doing a lot of reflecting. I saw a blog post entitled "Remember Who Your Husband Is." and the title stood out to me but in a different way so I decided to write my own post. I'm reflecting on nine years of marriage and who my husband is.

So who is he?

Lets remember ..

He is a gift from Allah.

Allah blessed me with him and it is my great honor to take care of my gift.
He is not to be abused, mistreated, and taken for granted. Allah has put us together and  for that I'm thankful Alhamdulilah. I'm here to assist him in the best way possible. Allah did not burden me with him, He did not curse me, but what He did do is bless me Alhamdulilah! When you know you are blessed you show gratitude!

He is the leader of our home.

Not only did Allah send me this gift. He also put me under his leadership. In remembering who he is, we must remember and respect his position of leadership. We should always pray that Allah is constantl…
