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.*

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.

    My daughter loves the taste of this. When we feel a cold coming on this is our go to.. we also like taking vitamin C for easier absorption of iron.

  2. Cynthia Bearden (verified owner)

    The elderberry elixir with alcohol is hard to take at first the cloves are strong. After a few days though it wasn’t as bad. Me and my husband take it daily and it’s helped alot with allergies and colds. Bought my mom some and she said it’s kept her from from getting any of the virus her co workers have had. She has told every one who will listen. She said it’s nasty but works.

  3. Erica (verified owner)

    I will never go without this in my house! It truly keeps our immune systems strong around here. I use it if we’ve been around sick people or if we feel something coming on. I swear by it and tell all my friends about it. Great for kids too. The convenience of the tincture keeps me coming back.

  4. Teri Moore

    We recently all got Covid after an international trip and started taking this, immune biotic and cough b gone. It really helped get through the virus without needing prescribed medication. So grateful to have them all on hand when the need arose.

  5. Lindsey Schoenfeld (verified owner)

    We use this regularly for immune boosting especially in the fall and winter months. Get the alcohol free version for the kids. Accidentally got the alcohol version for them this time and it burns the mouth. We mix in a little water so no big deal but will make sure I order without alcohol next time! This is definitely a product we keep in the cabinet and I highly recommend!

  6. Brittany (verified owner)

    Started using elderberry kids for my 2 year old during flu season just to keep her immune system nice and strong! She drinks it with no problem in a little juice cup!

  7. Herbalmama714 (verified owner)

    Going on a year and a half using this stuff! HOUSEHOLD MUST HAVE! We prefer the kids one because we have kids and I’m not a fan of the alcohol based one.. taste like fireball! So if you like the taste of fireball the alcohol base one it for you! We take this daily and double when sickness rolls around!

  8. Sherie Halanski (verified owner)

    I take this tincture every time I know I have been near someone that didn’t feel well. I feel it works great because so far I have not gotten sick from anyone that was close to me. If I feel a bit run down, I also take it then.

  9. Jacqueline (verified owner)

    Good stuff. I add it to my water every morning!

  10. Kaitlin Irons (verified owner)

    I’m convinced that this is the daily cure to my littles impeccable immune system. We take this every morning!

  11. Lindsey Byrom (verified owner)

    I love this product! I swear this product is how I didn’t get sick in the winter of 2023! The first time I used this product I was coughing and sneezing a little bit. The day after I used it I didn’t cough and sneeze at all! I kept using this product a couple of days a week and never fell ill! I used the original version and would mix it with some water.

  12. Nicole (verified owner)

    I take this and have had my kids take it when we notice that an illness is going around or when one of use has a bug. Easy to use, seems to work well.

  13. Heather Sick (verified owner)

    We take the elderberry tincture to help boost our immune system. I love how tinctures lasts a long time so we don’t have to worry about using it all within a month. We’re able to use it as needed for an immune boost or to help during sickness. This really seems to help shorten duration of sickness. Glad to have it in our natural medicine cabinet. We get the kids version. It tastes better and the kids like it =)

  14. lagoossen (verified owner)

    I use Earthly’s Elderberry every day and it seems to keep me well. The taste is good too. Wouldn’t want to be without it!

  15. Jessica Jenkins (verified owner)

    I bought the kids version for my daughter. She loves the taste of it and asks for it every morning. She hasn’t gotten sick since she’s been taking it, even while being around other sick people.

  16. Megan (verified owner)

    Really love this tincture. I take it (along with Feel Better Fest) whenever I feel under the weather, and sometimes just on the daily during sickness season. It has a bit of a bite to it that I personally like, and even my daughter (19mo) likes it. It’s nice to have a natural option to keep us healthy especially in the winter!

  17. Ashlyn (verified owner)

    We absolutely love this elderberry tincture! I hardly ever leave reviews on products, but this tincture has really saved us this winter. We’ve hardly been sick at all! I give each of my kids the recommended dose (along with one other herbal remedy) whenever we start to feel a cold coming on, and it really works to keep us from getting sick, including one round of the stomach flu after a Thanksgiving get together. I recommend it to all our friends, and I will definitely be buying more when we run out. Highly, highly recommend!

  18. Macayla

    I bought this when we planned our trip to Disney. Knowing we’d be in large crowds and my son would be touching everything germy I wanted to prepare his body. I used this every day and some times twice a day. We have loved using this product as a family as a way to support our immune systems and keep us healthy.

  19. Anna (verified owner)

    This stuff is a lifesaver! Back in November and December of last year my whole family took turns being sick. We had just about everything from stomach bugs to strep to the flu and various colds. I even had a viral eye infection. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired and knew we needed an extra boost for immunity. Enter the Elderberry elixir! We truly have not been sick even once since! Any time we’re about to go in public and I know we’ll be exposed to lots of who-knows-what I take some as well as give some to my 2 year old who tends to pick up everything. So so grateful we have this now!

    This product works wonders. My kidsnlike the kids version as the taste isn’t bitter.
