Botanical Name: Sambucus nigra
Certified Organic
Origin: Bulgaria / Croatia / Albania
Production: Elder is a flowering plant that is native to Europe, Northern Africa, and Western Asia. It produces large clusters of small, white flowers in the spring, followed by small blueish black (sometimes red) berries.

Common Use: Elderberries can be used in healing teas, tinctures, and syrups. They are always best consumed cooked, as cooking neutralizes the astringency and toxins that are naturally occuring in the seeds and stems of the berries. They have also been used in cordials, wines, and even ketchup recipes. The dried berries can be to muffin or pancake recipes for a flavour similar, but less sweet, to that of blueberries.
Storage: Store in a cool, dark, dry place in a sealed container.
Safety: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using any herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
