The elderberry plant grows all over North America. Elderflower is the first to appear on the plant early summer, and shortly thereafter the elderberry itself begins to develop. It is easy to spot, growing in large umbels of star-shaped flower clusters, which can reach a lofty 4 to 12 inches in diameter! Each individual flower within the cluster possesses 5 petals along with 5 pale yellow thin filaments which grow from the center of the flower.
The elderberries have so many traditional immune boosting benefits. The most common use for Elderberry tincture is to help fight off colds and flu. Historically, they have antiviral and antioxidant effects which can help speed up recovery and reduce severity during a viral illness.
Elderberries should never be eaten raw as they can be poisonous. Always cook them if you are making a syrup using fresh berries or let them dry before creating an extract with them.
