Elderberry Syrup

$15.00 each

The Elderberry Syrup is a wonderful boon to have around for when coughs, colds, sore throats and flu strike. 

Even when everyone is well, it is excellent for supporting and optimizing immune system functioning.

In our house, our favourite way to drink it is a few inches in a mug with hot water added - a gorgeous and soothing warm drink.

Sweetened with natural raw honey and a little Glycerol to help preserve it, this cordial tastes delicious which is what you want when you are trying to persuade little ones to take it! 

The Elderberry Syrup contains:

Elderberries (Sambuccus nigra): anti-viral, immune enhancing and anti-oxidant, suitable for children, helpful for influenza, the common cold and viral infections.

Echinacea angustifolia – immune enhancing and anti-inflammatory. Helpful for acute infections, influenza, the common cold, bronchial asthma, otitis media and nasopharyngeal catarrh (snot!). 

Astragalus membranaceus: enhances immunity, prevents infection, strengthening adaptogen, lowers blood pressure, good for fatigue and debility and for post-viral syndromes (the exhaustion and weakness following a major viral infection). Not advisable during the ACUTE stage of an infection.

Albizzia lebbeck - an anti-allergy and anti-spasmodic herb, helpful for croup and asthma

Sundew (Drosera longifolia) - a soothing demulcent and expectorant, helpful for coughs, bronchitis and asthma

The cordial also contains raw natural honey and a small amount of food-grade Glycerol.

This cordial is safe for children over the age of 12 months, and safe to consume during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

How to use:
Take 10-15 mls in a little water, 3 times daily until bottle is used up.

Water can be hot or cold.

Keep in fridge.

Can be mixed with a little gelatine to make jelly or “gummy bears”. I use Great Lakes gelatin.

The Elderberry Syrup contains no preservative other than the Glycerol, and needs to travel from my fridge to yours in the shortest time possible, so:

I have included an option to buy your own dried whole Elderberries if you would like to have a go at making your own Elderberry Syrup at home.

The recipe calls for 120g Elderberries, to which you add 500 ml water. This make 250-300 ml cordial depending on how much you allow the water to reduce when you boil the elderberries.
