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 taking blood thinners or have an auto-immune disease. (Ginger may increase the action of blood thinners and elderberry may worsen autoimmune symptoms for some, especially during illness.)

These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA, and this product is not intended to diagnose, treat, or cure anything.


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.

    Absolutely love this product! Will always continue to us this and I love to give it to my kids. Especially when they don’t feel well, and it tastes so good!!

  2. Sarah Irwin (verified owner)

    We love the elderberry! My family takes it nightly. It has been a big contributor to staying healthy especially in the gray months where we live.

  3. Lisa Braund (verified owner)

    My daughter told me about this product a couple of years ago and I tried it and I love it! I work with the public and I think this and some of the other Earthley products are what has been keeping me from getting sick!! I take it everyday to keep it in my body! I highly recommend trying this if you haven’t yet!!

  4. Lindsey M (verified owner)

    Good product to have on hand!

  5. Valerie Quinn (verified owner)

    My kids love this and so do my husband and I! It’s really helps shorten the duration of a cold and my picky one even loves it!

  6. Stacey Rogers

    This is in our daily routine, especially during the winter months. We call it “purple drops” and my boys are always running with wide open mouths ready to take their dose.

  7. Ginger (verified owner)

    The taste is AWFUL!!! It makes it SO hard to take. But I feel like it works

    • Emilie Cubino

      Thank you for your honest review! If you are struggling with the taste, we recommend trying the kids version or putting it in juice to help mask the taste.

  8. Kiley Esbenshade (verified owner)

    My kids are so picky when it comes to flavors and taste. My youngest daughter gaggs if she has to take chewable medicines. So to say that my kids willingly take the kids version of the elderberry is a big win for me and says a lot about how good the flavor is. This viral season my kids get a dropper full directly in their mouths as part of their pre school routine. Thank you Earthley for this win!

  9. Kristi Matheis

    I love the flavor of the kids product. I’m thankful to find a high quality Elderberry that doesn’t have all the added junk ingredients.

  10. Ashley Millhiser (verified owner)

    Spicy support for your immune system. Cut my cold short and helped my toddler with the endless cold that come home from daycare. Love the no sugar.

  11. Courtney (verified owner)

    I think this tastes pretty good! I work in schools, so this is a must have! Lots of kids out with flu, strep, etc. I seriously think this is keeping me healthy! Easy to take…just squeeze some in your mouth.

  12. Kate Banister (verified owner)

    Absolutely love the elderberry elixir! My kids all line up for it and open up like little birds. I’ve noticed a definitely improvement in our immune systems, with a longer gap between colds, and shorter durations when we do get colds. It really helps clear up coughs too. Will always have this one in our arsenal!

  13. Mackenzie (verified owner)

    We love this elderberry elixir. We began taking it in the fall to try to stay ahead of cold and flu season and even though we’ve gotten sick I can tell that our symptoms are more mild and lessened. My kids ask for their elderberry daily!

  14. Vanessa Trunick (verified owner)

    I love this soo much !! I’ve always get sore throats because of something in the air and now it seems like I barely get them since I’ve started to take this ! I used to get sick a lot but ever since I’ve started taking this it seems to less and less !! I definitely recommend this !!! If at first it doesn’t work for you keep trying it works wonders

  15. Brittney B (verified owner)

    We’ve tried elderberry syrup made at our nature organics store but my children prefer the taste of elderberry elixir. I also feel like the elderberry elixir has helped keep us well more so than our locally made elderberry. We take elderberry elixir every single morning!

  16. Sara (verified owner)

    Love this! My kids love the taste and it’s a great bang for my buck! I know what’s in it and that is so peace bringing.

  17. Michaela Oliver (verified owner)

    We love this elderberry tincture so much! The “Kids” version is delicious and my toddlers love it. I make elderberry syrup regularly, but I love having this tincture on hand for when we go out of town or for children under one since I put honey in the syrup I make. I also love the added immunity benefits of the other herbs in this tincture!

  18. Hannah Jarboe (verified owner)

    I love this stuff! It has helped me knock out sickness quick!

  19. Nina Garofalo (verified owner)

    Love this elixir!! Simply stir it into my water or tart cherry juice at night for an immunity boost! This has gotten me through the winter! I typically always come down with a flu in December or January, but this year, not even a sniffle!!! I really believe this has helped me so much.

  20. katelynmattheiss

    I was able to get my daughter off all allergy medications thanks to this serum!!
