This fall and winter I have decided to really make a concerted effort to ward off viruses by giving my kids a homemade elderberry tincture. So far it has been 100% successful, YAY!!! I would usually have dealt with at least one or two rounds of something going through my family of six since September.
I love the recipe from Deep Roots at Home (I used dried berries though) check out the incredibly easy recipe HERE. If you are like me and have no idea how or where to get fresh berries you can look for them in your local herb store or order them at Mountain Rose Herbs for $4.25 for 4oz which should make plenty to get you through the cold/ flu season.
I do not make any money from these links, these are simply my opinions and recommendations, neither site has any idea that I am promoting them.
