Elderflower

Elderflower tea is a soothing and healing beverage that contains strong anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. Elderflowers are rich in vitamins A, C, and B-complex as well as numerous phytochemicals and antioxidant compounds. Elderflower tea is a powerful immune booster and is particularly helpful with respiratory ailments such as bronchitis, sinusitis, laryngitis, tonsillitis, asthma, chronic cough, sore throat, cold, flu, and fever.

Elderflower is a natural decongestant and helps to clear up mucus and congestion in the lungs, sinus, and nasal passages. It’s also very helpful in treating other viral illnesses such as measles, chicken pox, shingles, and Epstein Barr. Elderflower has the power to purify the blood and cleanse the lymphatic system of toxins and debris. Elderflower works as a natural diuretic and can help eliminate water retention, bloating, and edema. 

Elderflower is also known to be particularly useful in benefiting liver disorders, fungal infections, urinary tract infections, toothaches, gout, headaches, arthritis, and hay fever. Elderflower tea can also be applied topically and used to help help heal cuts, wounds, burns as well as fade blemishes and freckles. 

To make elderflower tea, add 1-2 teaspoons of dried flowers to 1 cup of of boiling water and let steep for at least 10 minutes. Add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and/or a touch of raw honey to increase therapeutic benefits. Consider making several cups at a time and sipping throughout the day. Elderflowers can be found online or at your local health food store in tea, extract, and tincture form.
