It’s that time of year, again… Cold and flu season.
We often feel run down around the holidays, which makes us more susceptible to these kinds of viruses. But, many people are turning towards older herbal remedies, especially elderberries, (Sambucus nigra).
The use of elderberries has gained in popularity. With some scientific testing to back it up, elderberries can offer relief from coughs, colds, & even the flu when made into a syrup elixir. Also known for their immune boosting properties, elderberries are rich in antioxidants, and a source of Vitamin C.
It’s one of the best alternatives to big-pharma products, some of which may contain additives that people don’t want to give themselves or their family members. A must-have in many people’s natural cold and flu cabinets, (aka fridge in this case!).
I take a spoonful (a day) at the sign of an oncoming cold, or if I feel run down, or have been around someone else who feels sick. For the past 3 years, (knock on wood!), my elderberry syrup has kept these kinds of viruses at bay.
That’s why I’d like to share our new DIY Elderberry Syrup Kit! Now, anyone can create this lovely, useful herbal alternative.
Available here, at my -> Etsy Shop
This kit includes all the ingredients you need to create your own syrup, plus. easy-to-follow directions, & recipes, & a drawstring bag. .📨
All you need to have on hand is some honey (or maple syrup), to create a batch of elderberry syrup that will last most of the winter, if kept in the fridge. (Approximately 32 oz, or 1 quart.)
The labelled & organic ingredients include:
× Elderberry flowers
× Echinacea Root
(Spices) × Cardamom× Cloves × Cinnamon Bark × Star Anise × Eleuthero Root
🙌 Here’s my recipe! (Feel free to share)
- Place elderberries, water, herbs and spices in sauce pan.
- Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer for 45 minutes.
- Remove from heat and let the mixture steep for an hour.
- Using cheesecloth, (or a very fine mesh sieve), strain the mixture.
- Transfer your batch in to a jar and stir in 1 cup of honey, (or maple syrup if you so desire).
- Keep it in the fridge, sealed for up to 3-4 weeks.
Be well my friends!
