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 entire family takes this during winter season daily the kids version is what works for our family. It tastes amazing and helps keep our immune system strong.

  2. Courtney Robinson (verified owner)

    This stuff works! I gave it to my kids daily during the fall and winter. They didnt get sick once. Then in the spring I stopped giving it to them thinking we were out of the sick season. They got sick twice after stopping. This will be now be a daily thing in the spring as well. They don’t mind taking it. Highly recommend!

  3. McKenzie (verified owner)

    We use this daily for immune support and my daughter loves the taste. I love the clean ingredients that I can trust.

  4. Sarah H (verified owner)

    Easy to take, not super sweet like others! Enjoying this product and will order again!

  5. Rachel (verified owner)

    We use this at any sign of sickness and throughout the winter. My kids have stayed fairly well and been able to fight off any sickness they have gotten pretty quickly.

  6. Shelby Gil

    We just got this one & have been using it to fight off the bad sinuses & allergies that come with spring & summer. It is very potent but I will take whatever so that it kicks the nastiness from my body & kids, and it sure does!

  7. Kaelynn Nyerges (verified owner)

    Whether it’s allergies or a cold (or you’re not sure which), taking this right away helps so much! Truly does boost immunity & many times has helped me beat sickness early on!

  8. Amanda (verified owner)

    I have tried the kids and adult tinctures. Both work great at preventing or lessening illness time and symptoms. The kids love the kid tincture and take it on the tongue no problem. I can’t handle the taste of the adult one so I mix it with a small amount of juice. I started to take it when my kids started to get sick. I ran out of juice and the kids tincture so they wouldn’t take the adult one. My whole house had a cough, except me, even though I’d been coughed on and sneezed on directly by my 2 year old.

  9. mdowdle2 (verified owner)

    We used this for cold and flu season daily and my toddler who is in daycare was only sick once this year! We continue to use it a couple times a week during the spring and summer months and then daily when traveling.

  10. Mikayla Detweiler (verified owner)

    I’ve been giving this to my 9.5 month old daughter since she was 6 months. She has really grown a liking to her daily dose. She opens her mouth now when it is time for her elderberry. I love knowing she is getting all of the immunity benefits from taking this product. We bought the largest bottle and it lasts quite a while! Definitely worth trying to help keep your little one’s immunity strong!

  11. Nikki

    I just bought this and was surprised how strong of a taste it had. Also is it suppose to burn as it’s going down your throat?

    • Earthley

      Hi Nikki! You can put all of our tinctures in juice or water to help with the taste.

  12. Madelynne (verified owner)

    I am buying this a second time and I am reading the instructions better. It says to administer 2-3x per day at the first sign of illness. I use this on my children when they start showing the first signs of sniffles, but I only used 1x per day and it significantly reduced their symptoms and helped them recover within a couple of days. This time around I will give them the full dose, which will be even more powerful, I am sure!

  13. Hannah

    We started using these drops for my now two year old this winter. She has been in daycare and everyone at daycare is always sick. She always gets bragged about that she dodges the sicknesses going around or that if she does catch a virus, it’s quick lived. I truly think these have been a lifesaver this sick season!

  14. Nicole (verified owner)

    SUPER STRONG TASTE!! I purchased to take on vacation so we could continue our elderberry while gone. I took this the first morning and could not believe the taste was so bitter and alcohol based. I didn’t give to my son or husband because I knew it wouldn’t go well. We use the adaptogenic immunity so I was expecting something similar, we like the taste of that.

    • Earthley

      We are so sorry you did not like this product. We do recommend using our Kids versions if you want to take it straight as it is sweeter. You can also mix all of our tinctures with juice to take if they are too potent for you!

  15. Leah (verified owner)

    Daily item for our family!!! We take this every single day and it has been so nice to have. Thankful to have this for the adults in the house as well as the kids one for our little ones. Gotta keep our immune systems strong

  16. Kristi Todd (verified owner)

    I bought the kids’ version since it is alcohol free. It works great for adults! I love giving my immune system a boost every morning. I take 20 drops, along with other Earthley products. This elixir tastes really good and is simple to take with a spoon. It’s not messy at all. When I first started taking it, I was getting over a cold. It definitely helped to speed up the process. A quality made elderberry product is not typically this affordable. I will definitely repurchase!

  17. Isabel Teasley (verified owner)

    We use the at the start of any sniffles or cold and it REALLY works!! We love the taste too and it’s so easy to give to my baby as well since it’s just a few drops! I love it and it’s a must have especially in the winter during sick seasons!

  18. Tiffany (verified owner)

    Our go to for colds and immune support! It truly works in lessening cold symptoms and boosting our immune systems wether we are sick or around someone sick, once I started using elderberry elixir along with other earthly products my colds barely last a day or two! Even has kept the cold away as I felt it coming on! This is my number one recommendation for all my friends to have on hand

  19. Laura Decker (verified owner)

    This is now a staple in our house. My 5 year old loves the taste and I can tell my 10 month old doesn’t mind it either. It has truly helped us through this winter!

  20. Melissa Chando (verified owner)

    Love the Kids version for our family of 6! The added herbs make it the best elderberry on the market. My kids take it every morning and love the taste. Whenever we feel a touch of sickness, we dose it higher and add Feel Better Fast. I absolutely love this elderberry and the cost of the 8 oz is affordable for our large family. This is the one product that sold me on Earthley!
