Elder ↠ berries and flowers

The flowers and berries of the Elder tree {Sambucus nigra} are considered an immune tonic and are used as medicine to support the immune system. Elder is used as a remedy for infections, colds and the flu, and is considered the "medicine chest of the people." It is healing for the upper respiratory system and helps the body to dry up excessive mucus and helps move the mucus out of the body.

The berries are antioxidant rich, full of vitamin C, and support a healthy heart. The creamy, yummy flowers of Elder are considered antiviral, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, calms the nervous system, soothes tension and helps the body to break a sweat/fever.

May you be healthy and strong all season long.

Folk tales
The Elder tree has magical and meaningful folklore around its use as medicine. Elder is home to Elda Mor (Hylde-Moer), the Elder Mother. It was thought that Elda Mor could be petitioned on behalf of someone who has taken ill, especially sick children. Another magical tale includes, if you fall asleep under the bow of an elder on midsummers eve, you may be whisked away to the land of the fairies, or perhaps glimpse the fairy king himself. 

In our home we use this tincture everyday throughout the cold and flu seasons. The tincture tastes delicious in water, kombucha or tea.
