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.

  1. Dom B (verified owner)

    We love both the Elderberry Elixirs (original & kids) and they are both a godsend for helping to reduce symptoms from illness and to help support the immune system and get over those illnesses faster! The kids version tastes much better than the original, but the original is still tolerable!

  2. Carolyn (verified owner)

    This was one of the first products that I bought from Earthley and I loved it! I really loved how it had this raw, natural taste – you could really taste the roots of mother earth, in my opinion. The one constructive criticism that I would give about this product, is the taste of the cane alcohol. For me it was too overbearing and overpowered the other flavors, especially when I was reaching the end of the bottle, it was too potent in my experience. I wish to see the Original version with a new 2.0 version without the alcohol base, please 🙂

  3. Kailey Birchall (verified owner)

    This is so good to have on hand. I love the long shelf life, my kids like the flavor, and it helps us avoid getting sick or to recover quicker. It’s super concentrated so I feel like it’s more cost effective and cleaner than other brands.

  4. carlyrdavis (verified owner)

    I use elderberry elixir for me and my kids if we are starting to come down with sickness. It works great to reduce the severity and length of time of symptoms.

  5. Brooke (verified owner)

    Love having this on hand when any of my family is feeling under the weather. I like that is is safe for ne while nursing and safe for my babe! She loves the taste too.

  6. Renee Decker (verified owner)

    I like this overall, I think in the future I would look at ordering the kids one and not the adult bc if the alcohol base, that is not my favorite

  7. Meredith (verified owner)

    My all time favorite tincture! Definitely a must if you have kiddos and trying to boost your immune system, especially during cold and flu season.

  8. Courtney Lee (verified owner)

    We have been using this elderberry elixir for several years and I have three of my kids ages 8 through 4 take it daily to boost immunity. I take it at the first sign of symptoms. The kids version is easier for my kids to take straight up on a spoon and original can be mixed with a bit of water. It looks like both now have the same shelf life, so I go with the kids version. I love that it lasts awhile. This is a must have for every family!

  9. Natalie charnetski (verified owner)

    My husband and I swear by their Elixer. It is our go to as soon as anyone in the house is feeling a little unwell and the whole family takes it. We both believe it has decreased the severity of every cold we’ve had since beginning use of this product.

  10. Abby (verified owner)

    The Elderberry elixir works great and we use it together with the feel better fast and sometimes on its own. We have had no issues with it at all and helps prevent and decreased symptoms.

  11. Katie (verified owner)

    Another fantastic product! My daughter and I currently have cold like symptoms and we are both using this! The taste is so good, especially compared to other cold medication! We feel so much better taking this!

  12. Emily Thalman (verified owner)

    One of my favorite Earthley products! I take this daily. I love knowing that I’m strengthening my immune system naturally. Plus, it tastes amazing.

  13. Felicia Bristol (verified owner)

    Love this tincture! Use it in all my kids waters. And when I think a sickness is coming on, they just take it directly and love it.

  14. Bekah Town (verified owner)

    The kids version seems to be a big win with my toddler. You would think I was giving her a treat when I give her the tincture as she opens wide and gets excited when she sees I’m going to give her some. I think it’s helping keep the fall/winter sicknesses at bay.

  15. Cheryl Frey (verified owner)

    My husband often gets colds and coughs. Since taking this it has helped to reduce and minimize the symptoms.

  16. Maria F (verified owner)

    This was the first Earthley Tincture I tried, and I will definitely keep stocked on it. It’s not too potent to take plain, it’s easy to administer, and perfect for staving off winter colds. Thank you!

  17. Katie Millar (verified owner)

    We have been using Elderberry for years now. I love how easy this elixir is to use. You can mix it into juice for the kiddos who don’t like to think they’re taking “medicine.” I’m ok with just taking the adult one by mouth or mixed with water. Great product to use through the cold months to boost immunity.

  18. Tammy Long Stewart (verified owner)

    I love the Elderberry product. Any time I get a sore throat I use it. I had a friend who was coughing all the time, doctors could not figure out why. I had her use the Elderberry and she stopped coughing.

  19. Danielle Shada (verified owner)

    My family swears by this elderberry elixir! The original is very intense so my whole family uses the kids version but we absolutely love it and swear by it. It really helps us during the fall/winter season to help fight off sickness faster! I love that my husband will even grab these products when he starts feeling under the weather

  20. Michelle Carter (verified owner)

    My daughter loves nourish me natural so I purchased this. She currently has a cold and we’ve only used it for 2 days but she loves the flavor which is huge for my selective eater. I can’t speak on the effects as of now, but the flavor is so good.
