Formula:

NOURISHING SKIN SUPPORT SNACKS:

Calendula Calendula officinalis powder: 1⁄4 cup

Gotu kola Centella asiatica powder: 1⁄4 cup

Horsetail Equisetum arvense powder: 1⁄4 cup

Licorice Glycyrrhiza glabra powder: 1⁄4 cup

(Optional) Crushed almonds: 1⁄4 cup

Honey: 1⁄2 cup
*

Nut butter as needed to achieve cookie dough consistency.

Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend together thoroughly. Add a little more honey and nut butter if too stiff and dry, or a little more licorice powder if too sticky. If still too sticky, you can add crushed almonds into the mixture. Use hands to press the mixture into an eight-inch by eight-inch pan and chill several hours or overnight. Use a knife or spatula to cut into one-inch squares. You can also roll the pieces in crushed almonds to retain shape and texture. Store in tightly sealed containers. Eat three to four each day for those with skin issues, or recovering from surgical incisions, etc. You may also add liquid zinc and vitamin A and/or D emulsions as indicated.

*Do not use honey with infants younger than one year as there have been reports of botulism spores in honey and this can be fatal in infants.
