Why make this? Great immune booster + save money!
Elderberry syrup is great for supporting your immune system through seasons when ickies are spreading and also when your body is under assault from seasonal threats.
Elderberries have lots of flavonoids -- natural inflammation fighters and immune-boosters. Studies have shown that if you take elderberry syrup at the first signs of feeling "off" you can speed up your recovery.

The ingredients I add to my recipe -- some of our strongest anti-oxidant, immune stimulant and cellular health powerhouses -- boost this syrup's healing ability even more.
Making your own syrup, besides being able to customize it to your own liking and boosting its properties by adding essential oils, is smart because it will save you a ton of money. Store-bought elderberry syrup is expensive!
You might have most of these ingredients on hand. Elderberries can be bought easily on-line on retailers such as Amazon.
1/2 cup dried organic elderberries
3 cups water
¾ t cinnamon
½ t powdered cloves
2 T grated ginger root
½ t turmeric (optional)
1/2 t ground coriander
4 capsules powdered vitamin C
1 cup honey
Shake or stir well before dosing. Can be taken “neat” or mixed in with hot tea or other beverages.
Will last for 2-3 months stored in the fridge.
Dose – if well:
Children: 1 – 2 teaspoons daily (1/2 – 1 t for under 6 yo)
Adults: 2-3 teaspoons daily
Dose if fighting something –
give above amounts every 2 - 4 hours
My personal favorite “health tea”:
Served hot, this tea is amazing for any tickles in your throat or respiratory system or to support your immune system through seasonal or environmental threats.
