idea to help adults, seniors and children to take herbs. The jello scoots the
herbal flavors quickly past the taste buds and down into the stomach. You can incorporate herbal infusions, decoctions and tinctures into the jello.
Play with this and share what you
come up with.
Herbal Jello Recipe
¼ box Jello
¼ cup boiling water
1 oz. herbal tincture
1 oz. cold water
When making up the jello , add the tincture right after the
boiling water to release the alcohol in the tincture then add the cold water.
Pour into small baking tin or small fun molds
If you use the baking tin, once jello hardened cut into portions.
Herbal tinctures you might use are:
St. Johns Wort
If you prefer to use no sugar, use gelatin and sweeten with stevia.
Herbal jello examples…
As a digestive aid, “Lemon Balm lemon lime shimmies” which might
include Lemon Balm, Peppermint, Chamomile,
or Ginger with lemon lime jello.
“Cherry up” with cherry jello and St. Johns Wort, which just might cheer you up.
“Mellow yellow jello” using Valerian and California Poppy with
lemon jello, as a relaxing nervine.
“Catnip-Fennel jello” soothing children’s colicky digestive
system and children’s fevers.
Maybe even a Meadowsweet jello for a child with diarrhea.
