You may have heard about Elderberry. Many people take it for common winter illnesses and immune support during the school year. Elderberry is a powerhouse herb that supports the body’s immune system. You have probably seen elderberry syrups at the drugstore. We are here to provide you with a better option than sugary drugstore elderberry syrups!

Our Elderberry Elixir is formulated with four other herbs to promote a healthy immune system. It’s a potent cold and respiratory illness fighter, but safe enough to take daily!

Our Elderberry Elixir is also safe to take daily because it doesn’t put your immune system into overdrive. It is an immune modulator (balancer) and supports your body by giving it what is needed to help keep you healthy! Our concentrate is shelf-stable for two years and doses are mere drops per day so it will last a long time and won’t go to waste like syrups. It’s the ultimate herbal remedy for any natural-minded family and it’s safe for ages 6 months and up.

*1 oz, 2 oz, and 4 oz bottles come with a dropper top already secured on the bottle. To prevent leaking, 8 oz bottles are shipped with a cap on and the dropper top will be included and packed separately in your order.*

Shelf Life: 2 years. Safe for ages: Original: 1 year+. Kids: 6 mo+. Safe while pregnant and nursing. Use with caution if you are blood thinners or have an auto-immune disease.

Q: Can I take Elderberry Elixir everyday?

A: Elderberry Elixir is safe to take daily.


Q: Is Elderberry Elixir safe for infants?

A: The Kids version can be taken as early as 6 months old. The Original version is safe for 1 years old and up.


Q: Will taking Elderberry Elixir cause me to have a “cytokine storm?”

A: Elderberry can increase the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines, which may be associated with a cytokine reaction and severe complications.  But, elderberry has never explicitly been associated with a cytokine storm nor causing any problems with immune function.

You can read more in depth information here.


Q: Is it safe to take Elderberry Elixir if you have an autoimmune disease?

A: Elderberry is safe for most people, but we recommend caution for individuals with autoimmune diseases and those on blood thinners. We recommend trying elderberry for immune support when not sick to see how you’ll react to it (it works well for some, but may contribute to a flare in others).  Don’t try it for the first time when sick. If you find you respond negatively to elderberry, astragalus root may be a better option.


Q: Can I take Elderberry Elixir for all viral illnesses, or just cold and flu?

A: Elderberry Elixir can be taken for all viral illnesses due to the nature of the herbs we use! All of the herbs can be used to aid your immune response to all viral illnesses, not just the cold and flu viruses.

Q: What is the difference between the Original and Kids formulas?

A: The Kids formula is made with glycerin and is formulated with herbs that don’t have as strong flavors, making it easy for children to take! The glycerin makes it taste sweet. The Original formula is formulated with alcohol and has pungent herb flavors in it. Both are highly concentrated to provide you with immune support, and both can be taken by adults and children.

    We have been using this since cold/flu season started. I give my kids a dose every few days as a preventative. We have not yet had one sickness this year (Thank you Lord). My five kids take it straight, even the 2 year old. They like it. I however have not yet taken it, I am due with baby in May. I just like to be cautious. Has anyone else taken this while pregnant?…. Anyway, we are so very pleased with Elderberry Elixer and so thankful you make it available to us for a great price!

  2. Kris (verified owner)

    Fantastic product. The flavor is pretty mild, it’s helped keep us healthy, and is shelf stable. I love that I don’t have to worry about it spoiling or keep it refrigerated, and it lasts us quite a while!

  3. Mariana

    For those that were wondering about this, it definitely works. And I got My 6 yr old to drink it. He showed signs of getting a cold five days ago, so I started giving it to him twice a day. Now, mind you he usually has a cough for two weeks after getting over a cold. He’s pretty much all better now. No cough. Maybe a slight stuffy nose, but I gave him nothing else, not one drop of OTC meds. I also took it myself and I’m feeling just fine. If you have little ones that are prone to getting colds like my son, definitely invest in this. Completely worth it.

  4. Jamie williams (verified owner)

    Love this stuff! Lasts a long time and no need to refrigerate! It is strong, so mix in a little water or juice. My whole family takes it, daily I swear By it!

  5. Sarah (verified owner)

    I haven’t truly taken this yet, as I haven’t been sick, but, I did take some just to try it and holy cow! It’s super SUPER strong! I could barely swallow it let alone imagine giving it to my kids! My husband started taking it yesterday for his onset of sick symptoms so we shall see what it does for him.

  6. Scott (verified owner)

    I use the Elderberry Elixir along with other products when I feel a cold coming on and through the duration of my cold. I add it to a little bit of water (probably not as potent) to cut down on the taste a little bit and use that to wash down the other supplements (vitamin C, and other branded products I won’t mention here). I find it is effective in reducing the intensity of my cold symptoms and shorting the duration of my cold overall. I just ordered my 2nd 4 oz. bottle for the next round of colds!

  7. Rebecca McKinley (verified owner)

    Won’t ever be without this stuff! My daughter and I take this (almost) everyday…. while people around us are dropping like flies from illness, we remain healthy. And you only need a small amount. It is extremely affordable… even in comparison to the elderberry elixers you can buy in a drugstore. Handmade, organic, affordable AND effective. We won’t be without this stuff.

  8. Felicia (verified owner)

    I think it is working. It is a strong taste to take it by itself for me i just put it in my smoothies.

  9. Molly (verified owner)


    I have been using this product for about 1 month and absolutely love it. We mix it with water and enjoy the taste (we think it tastes like holiday cheer). Although everyone around us is coming down with winter ailments, our family’s immune system is warding off all the nasty germs. My 9mo old doesn’t take this directly (yet) but I know she receives the benefits through my breast milk. Unlike all of the kids around her, she doesn’t have a runny nose or cough. I look forward to drinking this elixir daily and feel boosted as soon as I drink it. I also like that this elixir contains no added sugar, unlike other elderberry products.

    Holy Moly this stuff works amazingly!!! I purchased a large bottle after I received a promotion email from Earthly reminding us of the cold season upon us – Thank you for that by the way. I’m glad I had it on hand because I caught a nasty sinus infection/head cold over the weekend and I immediately started taking the elixir. Oh boy this is some powerful stuff. It’s strong yes but it works!!! By Sunday night I was 100% better. My husband felt a cold coming on and immediately had some and by the morning he felt a lot better. Thank you for creating this magic potion!

  11. Shannon (verified owner)

    I bought the elixir to help my family stay healthy this winter especially being pregnant and due in February. At the first sign of a cold I started giving about 5-8 drops to myself, 8 year old, and husband. It’s a little strong tasting so I’d add the drops to some orange juice. Instead of being knocked out for weeks, our colds were gone within the week. This is a must have in my medicine cabinet!!

  12. Bethany (verified owner)

    Love this! It’s jeeping us healthier this year and even if we do get a little cold it seems to be shorter and not nearly as bad. And I love that there’s no sugar in this. I give it to my 2 year old every day. Love, love, love!

  13. Megan (verified owner)

    It has a very strong, overpowering taste to it. I haven’t had to use it for illness yet but have high hopes that it will work!

  14. Heather (verified owner)

    Very strong….even overpowering taste of alcohol and clove. It was difficult for me to take and i need to mix it in juice for my kids to take it.

    • Kate Tietje

      It’s totally fine to mix it into something to take!

  15. Mary (verified owner)

    Wonderful stuff! I took it at the first sign of a cold and I was feeling better in no time. Definitely want to keep this on hand.

  16. Stacey (verified owner)

    I barely ever get sick but with a sick little one at home I felt it coming on and momma ain’t got time for that!! I order this elixir under a friend’s advice and theee says later I still haven’t gotten sick! This will definitely be staying in my cabinets to help keep us healthy this cold season!

  17. Judi Snyder

    We’ve been using this for about a month and I love it! My daughter 7mo has chronic blocked tear duct. One drop a day keeps it under control. It also cleared up her slight nasal congestion in 24 hours. So glad to have something that can help keep my preemie fighting strong.

  18. Kim (verified owner)

    Immediate relief from being very sick with 104 fever for 2 days. It arrived on the 2nd day. On the 2nd dose I was feeling much better. Has a nice cinnamon and clove taste.

  19. Heidi Vangsnes

    Oh my gosh. This stuff was a life saver. My toddlers got horrible colds and fevers. And I didn’t get sick at all. Some symptoms came on and I took this and the next day I felt perfectly back to normal. Some of the best priced stuff available too!

  20. Elizabeth Nelson

    Wow, wow, wow. My 2 year old had a temp for 2 days and then the sniffles for a couple more days and I DID NOT GET SICK AT ALL. As soon as my daughter got sick I started this elixir and was fine then had some diarrhea (detoxing my body of the sickness) but I never GOT SICK!! I seriously swear by this stuff now. Next time when I notice my daughter start to get sick she will be getting some drops of this elixir in her juice! LOVE IT!
