Organic BlackStrap Molasses
(2 Tbl's per day - one in coffee, one with EARTH CLINIC'S ICED MOLASSES RECIPE)
37 years old, have been plagued with oily, cloggable skin my entire adult life, antibiotics make me feel sick so I won't take them. Within 2 hours of first tbl spoon I percieved changing skin (flushed, drier) within 2 days (4 Tbls)no new acne and quickly healing. I think I can go without any makeup already! IS AMAZING!!
Often herbs and foods have a normalizing effect. So, Blackstrap helped someone with oily skin, but it doesn't necessarily mean it will make dry skin worse. For examle Cayenne pepper is good to help bleeding stop, but it also can help to increase circulation.
I have had only good results myself when using Blackstrap for a variety of things in my family.
Have you tried Castor Oil for your dry skin? I use it at night on my face and love it. One of my sons has very dry hands and it works for him, too. Drinking plenty of water will help to keep cells hydrated, also.

Please be aware that "soy formula" should be avoided and particularly for boys as soy is "estrogen-ic".
HI U Mspat, what most don't know is that the farmers spray their soy corps with Round-up at the end of the growing season so all the plants will die at the same time. They do that here in our county. This way you get a double dose of garbage. Heard all my life " don't eat the raw vegetables from Mexico". Now it's ...... don't eat anything from the U.S. The feral hogs are the ones spreading ecoli in our lettuce, etc. That is the reason we try to raise as many of our vegetables and fruit as we can. =========ORH=======
hello, i take black strap too i am 54 years old. i don't take it alone. i take 6 alfalfa tabs., and 2 flax seed oil 2 times a day .i use to be gray, i am seeing streeks of brown. and my gray is getting darker. i take my black strap with _____s apple citer viniger, and warm water. 2 tab.spoons viniger, and 1 tab.spoon black strap 2 times a day. i noticed that i no longer have hot flashes.
I had serious swelling of ankles ,feet & legs. And all doctors could suggest is poor ciculation and one way valves in leg not working properly and would have to wear pressure socks for the rest of my life but I was not willing for this and kept earching and tryinng all sorts of natural things but when finally I went back to black strap molasses which I used to take for nose bleeding & cured that and after some time of use I ran out of it & forgot to replace it and got swlling problems but never connected it to molasses but after 2 yrs for some reason tried molasses again and after some time I noticed something , less swelling to happen and gradually dissapearednd not even swelled during the day anymore and so must be the molasses that played a part in circulation for me in my legs and so will continue taking it for this is a much better cure than wearing pressure socks whch did not go to fix the problem anyways. Thank You, Norm from Abbotsford BC
hi all, i have been takin 2tbls of bsm and have just stopped as my skin on my face looked like it was aging and dry i no it has a lot of sugar in it and i was just wonderin if anyone sle had same problem, im a bit dissapointed as i really liked it, would love to hear if anyone else had similar problems, cheers
When I was a little girl if I had an upset stomach my grandmother would mix up black strap molasses and a small amount of baking soda. She would wait for a while as it puffed up and then would give me a spoonful. It always worked , so I tried it recently and after 45 years it still does.
2 Tbsp black strap molasses daily and up my intake of h2o to ten cups Gorgeous skin all over, no acne outburst befor my period and did not have any PMS, the period showed up unannounced. I've only been using the molasses for 3 weeks. Thanks a lot. I found simplicity lasts longer.
This is g8 stuff .I had a big problem with carpal syndrome some nights i could not sleep cause of the pain. Searched on the internet for any ideas came across this site and read reviews. Next day brought some BSM (Black Strap Molasses). Took a tablespoon before i ate every morning and another before i slept. After a few days the pain in my arm was not so severe. Within a month the pain disappeared.Also my husband noticed that i had lost weight. Maybe this was due to taking bsm (black strap molasses) . i continued to take it and in 6 months i have lost 3 stone. I think the bsm stopped my craving for sugar and also i didn't feel hungry.So overall, a wonderful medicine with loads of vitamins and minerals. recommend it to anyone.feel g8, hair is shiny. nails strong and skin glowing. This would be g8 for someone who is pregnant as it has calcium and iron in it.
i had a problem with my left ankle giving way and also suffered badly from carpal syndrome. i was not sure if the molasses would work but i read the comments here and thought i would give it a go. I have been taking 3 tsp regularly since 3 weeks ago. I am amazed -- it has cured my ankle which i no longer have to strap up. Also my carpal syndrome was incredibly painful especially at night. Thankfully i don't have pain anymore. Finally i was astonished to notice that i had actually lost 10 lbs in weight. i think it has cured my sugar craving as i don't feel as hungry anymore. I have been telling my family and friends to take it as it's like a miracle cure for many things. Also my skin is fresh looking, nails are stronger and my hair is shinier.
I take a tblsp of blackstrap in the morning and "chase it" with a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, with the mother in it, with 3 tablespoons of warm water. In 1994, I was diagnosed with metatastic breast cancer at the age of 53. I had my femur replaced, took 10 radiation treatments and 6months of chemo. I have been on this regimen and KNOW that these things are from GOD made ingredients and, therefore, have kept me well. I have always been a borderline anemic. My blood counts are better than they have EVER been in my entire life. I believe if I had been doing these things for myself BEFORE I got cancer that I would NOT have had cancer in the first place.
Yes indeed. I have been taking BSM for approx a week, and have noticed considerably less pain in my lower back and hip joints. I will continue taking BSM, approx 2 desertspoons per day. In addition, I mix 2 desertspoons of ACV with a litre of water and sip on that through the day. Something is working for me.
I think that molasses has helped my anemia quite a bit. I mix 1 tbs. peanut butter, a little chocolate syrup and 1 tbs. molasses in a small dessert type dish and microwave for about 15-18 seconds, stir well and ENJOY!!! Tastes great and gives you a bit of a lift.
Jules, personally, I took a Tablespoon twice a day, at the beginning. Later I tapered down to a Tablespoon once a day, and now, for maintenance, I take it once or twice a week.
Try squeezing fresh lemon juice (half or whole) with your blackstrap and a hint of cayenne red pepper. I use this everyday with other ingredients such as; turmeric, apple cider vinegar, black pepper and honey (optional). Love this drink. I do this every morning before eating or drinking anything else.
MARILYN,,,,,,, did organic gardening back in the 70's and it was very labor intensive and I gave up on that chore. Watched the Garden of Eden video that you mentioned and got pumped again. I have access to lots of chips.
Since we only plant half of our 100' X 100' garden, I'm going to take the half we don't plant and do the Garden of Eden thing. Glad we got to know one another. As the ole saying goes, you are never too old to learn a new trick.
I thank you. ======ORH=======
I've been taking molasses (about 1TBl/day split into 2 cups of green tea -- with a lot of milk... I don't really like the taste of this stuff LOL) for nearly 3 months now as an experiment. I originally tried it to see what would happen with the good ol' monthly (mom's peri-menopausal and occassionally bleeds longer than she should so I tested this on me) and here's what I've come up with.
I still have gray hair. In fact some of the hair near my temples is just plain ol' white. And apparently if L'Oreal can't fix it, neither can molasses. That's okay. Apparently 38 isn't considered premature graying ;-)
My periods are lighter. Kelp and molasses together seem to be an excellent combination to keep things at a dull roar. I've gone from a good 5 days of heavy flow with 2 days of annoyance added on, to about 1 1/2 days of heavier flow and 3 1/2 days of super light flow. So I've dropped about 2 days and I'm saving money on products left and right.
But the BIG one for me has been the surprising lack of joint pain. I was taking it for about 2 weeks before I realized that my left ankle, which I broke in beautiful ways about 2 1/2 years ago, was no longer stiff when I woke up, and I could now move it in the same ways that I can move my unviolated right ankle. I can even jog again without feeling every jarring impact on that ankle. For that reason alone I will continue torturing myself with the (blech) taste of this stuff on a twice daily basis.
Another strange, yet welcome, side-effect has been my fingernails. Normally, I only have fingernails this strong and happy in the middle of summer with high amounts of sunshine and a Biotin supplement -- even when I supplement with Vit. D in the winter months it's just not the same. I haven't taken my biotin supplement since I started the molasses, though I do keep up with the Vit. D and I have to actively work to break these things.
And for the joint thing, I've turned others onto this miracle syrup in a bottle and they've reported back with the same thing -- when they take it daily, they can tell a significant difference and when they forget they feel it. So for that alone, I'd say it's worth a shot.
been taking bsm now for slightly over two weeks now and it has surely worked graet. I started taking it for my hair which had started turning grey around ten years back when i was about 29yrs old. While searching for remedies Ilanded on this site and decided to give it a trial. I have not seen results on my grey hair since it is only about two weeks now but alot of other benefits already. My chronic fatigue is now completely gone. Iwas ever tired morning or evening with my lower back feeling like cut in two with alot of tension. My chest also had occasional sharp pains. I had seen doctors about it and after several analgisic trial i gave up. All these are fully gone. My wife that had acne is also taking it and says is working well for her.I also give my children one tsp twice daily daily my though with no health issues and they love it. I and my wife take one tbs morning and before going to bed. no mixture but take it whole from the spoon. not very sweet but we are comfortable.
My 22 month old was diagnosed as being anemic because of low iron count last month his iron count was 10pts the average is 12pts or higher. We had already been giving him high iron food and a vitamin with iron in it and nothing would bring the count up. The pediatrician gave us an iron drop supplement to give him, i didnt feel comfortable giving it to him because of all the side effects. Someone told me to try black strap molasses because it was high in iron. So i gave it a try and in 3 weeks his iron count went from 10pts to 14pts!!! We just gave it to him in his soymilk bottle.
ok - i am amazed. after reading about molasses here and remembering my great grandma feeding it to us on biscuits; i knew i HAD to have some and ASAP. well, i got some yesterday and immediately tasted it when i got in the car. i could barely restrain myself from drinking the whole bottle. i positively NEED this stuff. why was i NOT using it before? how had i forgot? weird. already i feel better. i have only had about 1 tablespoon since i got it - but my long time constipation is already better today! originally i got it with the idea to feed it to my pet rat sookie who just isn't thriving. she shows NO interest in it really - but for me i can tell i need it. btw - i am diabetic and was (B-12) anemic when i was younger.
2 tablespoons of blackstrap molasses cured gray hair. ENERGY BOOST. It took several months, but my gray hair along my hairline has begun to turn brown! IT WORKS! It's also a great energy boost. I'm a 40 year old female who weighs 120, and I leap out of bed. No aches; no pain. I have no health complaints because I use the following on a daily basis: blackstrap molasses, apple cider vinegar, yerba mate tea, cayenne pepper, cod liver oil, and MUCH PRAYER.
