  • Combine the herbs in the cup of boiling water and let steep for 10 minutes.
  • Strain the herbs from the tea. Pour the tea into a medium sauce pan and add the honey.
  • Turn the stove to medium and bring to a boil. You’ll need to keep an eye on the pan to make sure the honey mixture doesn’t boil over or burn. Stir regularly.
  • After about 10 minutes, start testing the temperature. You want to wait until the honey reaches 300 degrees or it won't harden properly. If you don't have a candy thermometer, simply drop a small spoonful of the mixture into a glass of cool water. If it hardens completely (it should be crunchy, not slightly chewy) it's ready. At first I used a small pan and the honey never got hot, but once I transferred the mix to a large pan it started heating up a lot faster, so you'll need to watch it closely. 
  • Remove the honey from the burner and work quickly to spoon the mixture into your molds.
  • Let cool for 30 minutes to an hour. Then dust off the powdered sugar and store in an airtight container.
  • To use, simply eat a drop whenever you start feeling stressed or need to unwind.
