It's time for some Elderberry!

Elderberry (Sambucus Nigra)

What is Elderberry?

Our HOTM is another one many of us are familiar with! Elder is a valuable remedy for flu, colds, and chest conditions. Elder thrives well here in Treasure Valley, and many of us have this power house in our yards and neighborhoods!

Parts used: flowering tops & ripe berries.


Elder flowering tops have the natural ability to help support how your body responds to histamine & inflammation, helping relieve cold, flu and allergy symptoms, while boosting a healthy response to a fever. Elderflower is also very nourishing for the skin, due to its ability to gently detox the skin by promoting sweating. It can also help support red, inflamed skin.

Elderberries are loaded with antioxidants (related to the deep blue-purple color) . Elderberries are known for their ability to prevent and support upper respiratory infections as well as shortening the duration of a cold or influenza. This has been attributed to compounds that help block receptor sites that viruses use to get into your cells.
