We started taking Elderberry syrup a few years ago, always homemade – cause have you seen how expensive it is at the store?!? It helps shorten sickness and can even ward it off if someone else in your house has it. Here’s the sciencey stuff on why it helps boost your immune system.
This takes about an hour from start to finish. I usually keep a bottle in the fridge and put the rest in the freezer. With high honey content it doesn’t freeze solid and takes very little time to defrost. I prefer to use a local raw honey (local will help with allergies).
I get my supplies from Bulk Herb Store – Whole Organic Elderberries, Organic Cinnamon Sticks, Organic Cloves and Raw Honey if you don’t have a local source. Or if you prefer to buy from Amazon Prime here’s your shopping list – Whole Organic Elderberries, Organic Cinnamon Sticks, Organic Cloves and Raw Honey if you don’t have a local source. To make this cost effective you can either split the ingredients with a friend OR Make a large batch. What I have done is offer it at cost to friends and in local Facebook groups.
