Full Instructions:

*Make Your Own Elderberry Syrup*

Step 1) Add 1.5 – 2 cups of purified water to a medium-sized pot.

Step 2) Add 1/4 cup of herb mixture to enclosed cotton drawstring bag to contain your herbs while simmering. Be sure to tie securely closed so that no herbs escape while simmering! Place the bag of herbs into the pot of water. Cover.

Step 3) Bring to a slow simmer and continue to simmer on low for 20-30 minutes. Turn off heat and steep until cooled.

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

Discard or compost used herbal material. Rinse the drawstring bag and dry for later use.

Step 5) Very gently warm your liquid once more in your pot just enough to incorporate honey. Do not overheat. Add 1 cup (or more) of raw or local honey and stir until well blended. Remove from heat.

Step 6) Once cooled a bit, pour your fresh, potent herbal syrup into glass jars or bottles and cap tightly.

*Don’t forget to label with contents and the date!

(Optional: add 1 Tbsp of vodka or brandy per cup of finished syrup for extra preservation)

Step 7) Refrigerate and use as needed for colds/flu, cough, congestion, even allergies and tummy troubles.

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

For best results, take one dose morning and evening for prevention and 4-6 times daily when ill until illness is resolved.

    This elderberry is the ONLY elderberry my kids will take. They love it and ask for it every morning. It keeps them healthy even when all their friends are passing around the “sick germs!”

    I first ordered the Elderberry syrup for my son that stays sick all winter. Then I found the DIY Elderberry on Connie’s website. My son is IT director for a retail Chain so he’s in the public everyday. He’s been on allergy shots weekly for 10 years. His allergy doctor said since he has stayed well this winter she will suspend his injections September 2020. I was so overjoyed about this news. It’s heart breaking to see your child suffer sickness year around. He got married so he and his wife are taking two elderberry doses each (daily). He depends on me to keep him well he said. I don’t keep him well, Connie’s Elderberry keeps him well. I worry none about him now getting sick. Thank you Connie my son thinks you hung the moon.

    I absolutely love this elderberry syrup. It makes a bunch and I know it has great health benefits for me and my family.

  7. Addie-Jane Lynn

    What an incredible value!! I could make so much with this little bag. I only needed one batch to get my family through the flu and it helped tons! I could easily make 4-5 more batches. Simple instructions too. It takes a while but it’s not active working. It’s just mostly letting it steep for long enough. I love this!
