Always give it the “sniff test” – if it smells or tastes off, do not take any of it, and throw it out.

Always refrigerate it for keeping for the longest amount of time. 


Suggested Usage:

Some people take elderberry in one tablespoon amounts once daily during the winter, but I think this is too much.  Others take elderberry syrup when exposed to others that might have a cold, which is how I personally take it.

Always shake up Elderberry Elixir before using it to make sure that the honey is mixed in.

My recommended dosage is 1 tablespoon, up to three times per day, when you start to show signs of a cold or the flu.  Take it until you start to feel better and stop when your cold or flu goes away. Since it boosts your immune system, it’s not necessary to take it every day, just in times where you start to feel something coming on. 

You can add it to lemonade (it’s very yummy in my opinion) or juice, or even to hot cocoa if you would like to add a little extra taste in. 


Why Does It Work?

Elder is most important to us because of its antibiotic compounds. We find the berry in syrups in the fall and winter to battle the flu and colds. In fact, studies have found elderberry to be very effective in shortening the time of suffering and minimizing the symptoms of a bout with the flu. In lab settings we also find that elder has activity against such forgotten illnesses as mumps and measles. In fact, in the media hype over ebola, it is interesting to find that Stephen Buhner mentions in his recent book, Herbal Antibiotics, that elderberry has shown activity against this virus as well.



Elder is native to both North American and Europe, but in slightly different varieties. 

A few age-old Elderberry uses:

Native American

  • Elder flower infusions for fever

  • Bark infusions for sores, eczema, as poultice or wash

  • Washing one’s face with the dew from elderflowers for beauty

  • Elderflower tea before bed to induce a cleansing sweat in the event of cold and flu-like symptoms

  • Elderberry drinks for throat complaints

  • Fruit syrup for colds and flus

  • Wine and Pie

History and Usage:

Fire Cider is a blend of herbs mixed with apple cider vinegar and honey used for its health-enhancing properties. This formula and name were coined by herbalist Rosemary Gladstar in the 1970s. It has been reproduced, adapted, used and sold by thousands of herbalists over the past forty years.  Rosemary states that this recipe has been handed down over many generations and is a very old traditional recipe, but she was the first to coin the name “Fire Cider” for it.  It is traditionally used as an oxymel (a mixture of vinegar and honey) for colds and flu, and to help as a daily boost to the immune system. 


Suggested Usage:

Always shake up Fire Cider before using it to make sure that the honey is mixed in.

Fire Cider can be taken once daily.  I recommend either mixing it with a juice or using a chaser of juice afterwards, as it can be pretty tangy.  I also recommend rinsing your mouth with water afterwards to prevent tooth enamel issues due to the acidity of the apple cider vinegar. 

If you have a cold or flu, you may take it up to twice daily until your symptoms disappear.
