This is not your common Elderberry syrup!
This is extra potent, and vegan. We don't use honey like classic formulations: instead, we use organic vegetable glycerin (VG) and organic cane spirits. We chose vegetable glycerin (VG) for our Elderberry Syrup over honey or other sweeteners found in traditional recipes, for several reasons:
- VG has a sweetness to it, but contains no sugar and therefore makes our Elderberry syrup completely sugar-free, safe for diabetics and vegans.
- Our Elderberry syrup travels just as easily as our tonics and elixirs... just pop it in your bag and go! VG allows for it to be shelf stable, therefore it does not require refrigeration.
- While we absolutely think the honey or agave syrups are quite a treat, we find that if you're doing truly medicinal doses of 4-6 teaspoons per day at the first sign of illness, the sugar adds up.

How to use it
Morning & Night
Add 1 tsp daily to water, juice, tea, baked goods, etc. For children: Ages 1-3: ¼ teaspoon daily Ages 4 and up: 1/2 teaspoon daily
Elderberry is meant to be high-dosed when you’re exposed to a bug and feel the onset of symptoms. This is why we really chose sugar-free, (like all of our formulas!) because sugar feeds the potential pathogens. The dosage is variable as it depends if you're using for ongoing resilience and protection, or when "hit" with something. For regular consumption 1 tsp a day is good, when you experience the early stages of a cold or flu, take 4-6 tsp throughout the day.
"I enjoy taking by the mouthful daily for immune support. Tastes delicious."
