Still unsuccessful in making my own candies. I am determined to try though.

Horehound seems to be the herb most often used for candies; I know I have seen directions for making them. You might try googling horehound candies, or cough drops, and follow the directions just using your pine.

This is interesting!

One thing a veterinarian told me, pine extracts and oils are deadly for cats. She said never use them or anything like Hexol, which contains pine oil, for cleaning around cats.

Wow. did not know that about cats.

I've never had any luck making candy. It always ended up tasting like burnt sugar.

DATS, thanks for that info! I'd never heard that B4, but checked it out online and found this.

I wish more vets would warn people of these dangers. I can't help wondering how many of my pets have had shortened lives because of me :(
