As cold and flu season sets in, it is extremely important to support our immune systems so that they can fight off infection. Elderberries are one of the best plant allies to combat both viral and bacterial infections.

Elderberries also provide respiratory support because they can help to loosen and remove phlegm. This Elderberry Syrup recipe is both easy and fun to make. It is powerful but gentle enough for children and safe to use during pregnancy.
