Make Your Own Elderberry Syrup

(purchase below)


Step 1) Bring 1.5 cups of distilled (or other purified water) to a boil. Add in 1/4 cup of herb mixture. Reduce heat to slow simmer and cover. Continue to simmer for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, turn off heat and steep until cool (or overnight).


Step 2) Line a medium bowl with a colander and a thick paper towel.


Step 3) Pour the contents of your pot into the paper towel lined colander which is on top of your bowl


Step 4) SQUEEZE!! Be sure to wring very well as to get all of the herbal goodness out of your herbs!

Discard or compost herbal material.


Step 5) Return the liquid from your bowl to a clean pot.


Step 6) Very gently warm your liquid just enough to incorporate honey. Do not overheat. Add approximately 1/2 cup of raw or local honey and stir until well blended.


Step 7) Once cooled, pour your fresh, potent herbal syrup into glass jars or bottles, cap tightly.

Don't forget to label with contents and date! (Optional: add 1 Tbsp of vodka or whiskey per cup of finished syrup for extra preservation)


Step 8) Refrigerate and use as needed for cold/flu, cough, congestion, even allergies and tummy troubles.


Syrup will remain fresh and potent for 2 months, even longer with a touch of alcohol added.


For best results, at the first sign of an illness, take a dose of syrup every hour the first day...Then 4-5 times daily until resolved.

Adults and older kids: 2 tsp up to 1 Tbsp

Young children: 1/2 -1 tsp. depending on age and weight.

(under age 1, use organic cane sugar, coconut sugar or pure maple syrup

in place of honey)
