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.

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.

    Another winter almost gone and once again, no sickness in my home. I love that this does not need to be refrigerated and I also LOVE that it lasts so much longer than others I have purchased.

  2. Cynthia Shields (verified owner)

    This is my favorite Earthley product!! I take it daily during “yucky” seasons, but I keep in on hand all year long for the first sign of any sickness, and I haven’t had much of a cold in years. I also love that it is shelf stable for a long time, unlike the homemade stuff. Thanks!!

  3. Cynthia Stamper (verified owner)

    Bought the elderberry elixir as part of a health bundle. Haven’t tried it yet, because I’m saving it for when we’re sick. But I’m confident in the product because everything I’ve bought from Earthley has been everything promised and more!

  4. Emily (verified owner)

    I have both the original and the kids version of this- I prefer the kids version straight by mouth and the original in water. We take this at the first sign of illness along with feel better fast and we’ve stopped a cold in its tracks! Will be buying again and again.

  5. Erin K (verified owner)

    I’m pretty new to the world of tinctures, but I have put this one to the test this winter. Even with germs entering our house regularly, I have managed to stay healthy using these drops. If anyone is sick in the house I use these in the morning and right before bed. If I start to feel like I’m fighting germs I will use it more often. So far I have managed to stay healthy all winter! Very happy with this product and looking forward to trying many others!

  6. Charity (verified owner)

    I love having this option of a shelf-stable elderberry. This is one of our go-to’s when we feel any sickness coming on!

  7. Lindsey (verified owner)

    We’ve been using this for two months now and my whole family has avoided lots of illnesses going around. Definitely know it’s helping boost our immunity!!

  8. Suzanne Ghattas (verified owner)

    Love it!!! Tastes great and it absolutely gives me a boost when I’m feeling under the weather

  9. Lizzie (verified owner)

    I love having this around for my kiddos! (And myself!) Definitely one to keep stocked for sick season.

  10. Lisa Pedigo (verified owner)

    This one is a true staple in my immunity arsenal! Whenever I am feeling sick or under the weather, a dose or 2 of this really makes a huge difference! And with an autoimmune disease, this is very important. This elderberry formula is the best I have found so far!

  11. Kaitlyn

    A family staple! Cannot recommend this enough. We give daily to our toddler during cold and flu season and I have been able to tell a major difference in this years sickness vs last year before we were consistently using. Will continue to purchase!

  12. Diane (verified owner)

    This is a cabinet must have! I work with children every day that are constantly sick. Hardly a day goes by without using this incredible product. By the way, I LOVE the YouTube commercial!

  13. Lizzie (verified owner)

    Love the kiddos version (for my two boys and myself!). Definitely love having it on hand for sick season.

  14. Markie (verified owner)

    My son started day care a year ago and since then, it has been non stop illness in our household. I purchased the adult and child’s elderberry elixir a month ago out of desperation and oh my goodness, it’s the best thing we’ve ever done. We have been on the longest stretch of health we’ve had in a long time. The adult version is a big strong but you get used to it. I’m a BELIEVER in this product.

  15. Lindsey

    Last winter season I was so over my 3 kids having snotty noses all.winter.long. This year I was determined to find something that helped. Enter earthleys elderberry elixir… I started giving it consistently in October and we had no snotty noses, even thru the holidays and being around sick extended family members. It seemed as though everyone and their neighbors were getting sick then, but not us! I noticed in January I got lackadaisical with giving and snotty noses made their first appearance for the season. Kicked myself and got back to typical routine, cleared the snotty noses in about a week and we’ve been healthy again every since. I will say, I paired the elixir with the Vit-C and adaptogenic immunity tinctures. Love that combo! And will forever make sure I have them in stock for the winters!

  16. Lindsey Byrom (verified owner)

    I swear by this product! Ever since I’ve started taking it- I’ve only gotten a tiny cold once! And even then, I took it every now and then.
    The first time I took it I had a bit of a runny nose and the day after I took it I was NO longer sick! I swear this stuff helps keep you in good shape. Obviously a good diet and good sleep is a must. Take this a couple times a week and you are set! My boyfriend even came down with a cold a couple times in the winter- I was around him- and I didn’t get sick! I got the original version of this elderberry.

  17. Margaret Abell (verified owner)

    Elderberry Elixir is a staple in our household. We use the Elderberry Elixir for kids and it has a pleasant taste.

  18. Alexa Kolarik (verified owner)

    Love this stuff!! So good for cold season and even year round!

  19. Angela (verified owner)

    We tried this because we would waste half our elderberry syrup. This lasts longer and it’s easier to get the kids to take because it’s drops and not like a couple tablespoons Neither boy have ever complained if the taste. I admit I forget to give it daily or take it daily, but we start as soon as we start to feel bad. I’ve noticed if we go get sick our time being sick is half the length of others..I really should try to have us all take it daily but I forget. I like the taste.

  20. Michelle Magdaleno (verified owner)

    This month I had a cold and for the first time ever I didn’t take ANY over the counter medication to help manage my cold symptoms. I used only Earthley products and they managed my symptoms just as well as any OTC meds ever did. Plus I got better so much quicker. I’m a super fan now!
