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.

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.

  1. Autumn

    This is by far a favorite product of mine, especially now with the cold season coming up I try to take it every morning, the baby I nanny was sick and passed what he had to me and I couldn’t get out of bed so I took this and the next morning I was back to myself like I was never sick.

  2. Emily (verified owner)

    I’ve been using this every day for months to support my immune system and I love it. It tastes great and I feel healthier overall.

  3. Susie Jones (verified owner)

    Love this stuff! Another great tool to use when any sort of sniffles, congestion, cold symptoms occur. I’ll take this over the course of a day or two and I’m all better.

  4. Jenna (verified owner)

    We love this tincture. Whenever I feel slightly off I’m grabbing this and taking a dose! I hardly ever get sick and if I do it’s not for a long time. I always ask my husband too when he starts to feel off if he needs to me to make him a concoction and he always says yes (which is huge from where we started) he’s a huge believer now too and it’s such a relief

  5. Alanna (verified owner)

    My children take this daily and when we noticed that they may have caught a bug we started using the dosage listed here on the site and they got rid of the yucky bug much faster than previous years, thank you for this great product!

  6. Maggie (verified owner)

    My 19 month old takes the kids elixir *almost* daily! He loves it. I put it on a little spoon for him so the dropper doesn’t get contaminated. The adult version isn’t my favorite taste compared to other products (due to the alcohol base) but when mixed with a little water it’s bearable. I absolutely love this product for daily immune support.

  7. Kristin Napuunoa (verified owner)

    All my kids, including my 1 year old loves this tincture! It tastes great and I believe it is the best elderberry out there! I love that I can’t give this to all of our kids and myself (I nurse) and it builds our immune system!

  8. Alyssa (verified owner)

    So thankful to have this stuff on hand during cold and flu season!

  9. Abigail (verified owner)

    I give this to my girls almost every day. It seems to help their immune systems stay strong and healthy! I used to buy Elderberry syrup from a local farm co-op, but I like this better. Plus, it doesn’t have all the sugar. I even took this at one point when I was getting sick. I really think it helped me kick whatever it was.

  10. Ashley shook (verified owner)

    I’ve been taking this for about 2 months now. My daughter has gotten a few sickies from daycare and not once have I caught anything. Which is unusual being her sole provider! I will be getting the kid’s version next!

  11. Isabel (verified owner)

    Use this when my little ones seem to be getting sick or even myself. It does seem to work. Taste is good too.

  12. Gelleen Hartsoe (verified owner)

    I now use this every time I’m out in the public during “flu” season and it has kept me healthy. Knock on wood it continues. Flavor is interesting but I don’t expect medicinal items to be tasty. It’s also great because I’m not allergic to this as I was to other OTC products.

  13. Dana (verified owner)

    We used the kids version for a cold we as a family got. I feel like it helped we took it twice a day . It seemed to help with my little guys cough. I did also use this product with the sinus saver

  14. Christiana (verified owner)

    I am a first time customer and recently purchased a bunch of things from this website to start stocking up for the winter because the great reviews as well as the detailed descriptions on each product page. I also had a question about one of my products when i first received my order and had a response from customer service within just a couple of days! Soon after I received the elderberry elixir in the mail i started to feel sick as if a fever was trying to creep in and some body aches etc. I just had the “oh no” feeling when you can tell your body wants to get sick. I took the elderberry elixir three times a day as suggested as well as the vitamin C tincture (daily) and after two and a half days i felt so much better, all of my aches and feverish feelings went away and it didn’t turn into anything serious nor did i take on ANY sinus pressure or issues at all which is so unheard of for me. Since then i only had a lingering cough. My whole life I have gotten multiple sinus infections a year and after taking antibiotics my whole life i have a really weakened immune system but i am on the natural route now and I can attest that these tinctures are truly a beneficial natural remedy. I have never in my life been able to prevent a sinus infection before so the fact that i do have a lingering cough but that all of my other symptoms completely went away to me shows that this tincture can really work even if it doesn’t take care of 100% of the symptoms, to me the fact that it took care of majority of my symptoms is an amazing thing. I would try the cough be gone but i am nine months pregnant and saw that one isn’t suggested while pregnant but i have full confidence that if i am able to use that some day it will work! (One last note for extra context, once i noticed i was feeling sick and started to use this tincture i also stopped eating sugar- cane and consumed very limited natural sugars as well as I added more ginger and garlic to my diet which are natural immune boosters so i think keeping a healthy diet helped my body allow the tincture to do its work so easily in me!)

  15. Lisa (verified owner)

    The taste isn’t my favorite, but it’s not bad at all. I started using this right when all 3 of my little ones were coming down with a nasty cold and I didn’t catch it, even with them all over me! I would say that’s great, I don’t think they’ve ever gotten sick without me catching it before, so I’m impressed

  16. Lynn Ragali (verified owner)

    This is the product that introduced me to Earthley. I rarely get a cold or flu since starting to take this. I also love it’s a honey free tincture as I try to limit anything that spikes blood sugar. Definitely need especially for cold and flu season.

  17. Stacy Chmykhalov (verified owner)

    My husband, my 2-year old and 5-year old daughters, and I have been taking it every day and I can already say we have been very healthy during the nasty flu September and October. I am a teacher assistant and i know I’ve been to exposed to many sick kids and so has my kindergarten daughter. But this elderberry tincture I believe has truly helped us build up a stronger immunity to it. I put the drops in orange juice so no one can taste it at all

  18. Kayli (verified owner)

    I bought this elixir before fall sicknesses would inevitably hit my household and it has been a lifesaver! I got the kids version and my kids are asking for the “raisin juice” everyday. They all got some sniffles and cough and I gave them this everyday and it passed so quickly. I love that it’s easy to use and my kids enjoy the flavor so it’s not a fight to get them to take it. Highly recommend!

  19. Terilyn

    I use this for myself and both my kids. The kids love the flavor and it definitely helps keep the icky stuff at bay.

  20. Patti Krealins (verified owner)

    This is great to use as you feel an on coming cold starting. It has nipped it in the bud for me stopping it. Get that tickle going in your throat, take some drops daily and it really helps!
