what is a recipe for a safe herbicide?
Hardly anyone uses this group anymore. You might get a few more answers at the home repair group that I forwarded your question to. One thing you could do is search for organic herbicides. Farmers have used 2-4D for decades. Another option is Roundup. That's readily available.

For what working definition of "SAFE" and even more significantly, for what end purpose?
2,4-D is the basis of almost all readily available broadleaf herbicides, granted, but it is one of the worst at causing collateral damage as it volatizes drastically and drift is consequently a major issue. Consequently, it is used much less for commercial ag applications than in past and there's a significant push to end its use entirely owing to such issues.
Glyphosate (Roundup (tm)) is a broad-spectrum herbicide and will kill most grassy plants as well as broadleaf so must be certain to know what is the target and what is to be protected...
