these elderberries were wild foraged on my property and tinctured fresh in vodka for 2 months

elderberry is the most infamous immune support herb of all time. 

it is an excellent preventative and decreases the severity of symptoms + days spent sick.

it has been ubiquitously cherished throughout the history of herbal medicine.

it has been extensively studied and validated by modern science. 

it is a specific for influenza. 

it is full of nutrients + antioxidants that fuel strong immunity.

it also builds + enriches the blood, though if you're specifically interested in these effects i'd recommend a daily cup of elderberry tea.

it is a classic humeral medicine, which is the basis modern western medicine was built from. 

it opens systems, it cleans them, it expels the wastes. 

low daily doses keeps this process quiet and persistent, but don't be surprised to find phlegm leaving the body. 

1 dropperful a day is good preventative measure for adults

1/2 a dropperful is a good preventative measure for adolescents 

i don't think preventative measures are appropriate for small children

take 3 dropperfuls if you feel the first inklings of illness, follow with a glass of water and take it easy for the day. this works very well.

if you've already fallen ill, take 1 dropperful three times a day until you're feeling better. 

5-10 drops 3 times a day is a good dose for a child that's under the weather. 

alcohol based tinctures are generally considered safe for children (not infants) because the amount of alcohol is so minuscule. 

that being said, please do your own research and only make decisions that you feel very comfortable with. that's the most important thing. 

if a child is really struggling to fight a bug on their own, you can put those 5-10 drops in a cup of juice for your kiddo, they won't notice it a bit.


elderberry is a nutritive measure that supplements the body's natural efforts. -but-

when it comes to children, letting them fight off a cold or flu on their own is how they develop a strong immune system. 

however, if they've had electric green boogies all winter long, enough is enough. 

other people sell elderberry syrup. it doesn't keep as long as a tincture does and it usually uses a sugar medium. 

a lot of people like this for children. just an fyi for your radar, be well!
