ELDER

on

It’s immune-support season! With the arrival of fall, we could all use a little help with boosting our immune system. An easy way to get our immune systems stronger is by adding medicinal herbs to our daily routine. Luckily, herbal tea provides a delicious and fun way to do that! We have a blend specially made for the fall season, and it’s called Elder.

Made from all organic elderberries, clove, ginger root, lemon peel and Ceylon cinnamon. The taste is unbelievable! If you’ve never tried elderberries before, they are a bit tart and bitter. The clove, ginger root, lemon peel and Ceylon cinnamon provide a punch of flavor that is reminiscent of a sweet pie! In my opinion, it has fall written all over it! Not to mention elderberry is packed with antioxidants and vitamins that are known to give your immune system a boost.

Elder can also be made into a syrup. If you’ve never heard of elderberry syrup, I highly suggest giving it a try and adding it to your fall routine. I have included a recipe below, let me know what you think! If you’re not into drinking syrup, that’s totally fine. Enjoy a nice cup of Elder tea instead!
