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.

    Best elderberry we’ve tried & it’s shelf stable, so it’s not going to waste when we don’t use it. But I have to say, we use to only utilize when sick. It greatly reduce our symptoms and length of illness. You don’t have to convince me elderberry was made for cold & flu season. BUT lately, I’ve started using it daily for my son…who was just diagnosed with asthma! And it has made such a difference in a week…he’s symptoms are so much better & almost gone. I appreciate this formula as it contains a bounty of known herbs to help with the respiratory system. I’m so thankful for breathing treatments but also so thankful for a more holistic approach to keep his asthma at bay! Thank you!!

  2. Tara Taro (verified owner)

    This is another go to in my family for anytime we feel a sickness coming on. It really helps decrease our illness time and is such a game changer when it comes to my kids being sick. It is such a relief knowing I have this in my toolkit for when the kids bring home yet another illness.

  3. Jennifer Riddle (verified owner)

    It’s so nice to have something on hand that is healthy and helpful for my kids when they start showing cold symptoms or need a boost. They love the taste and the symptoms never last long!

  4. Meg (verified owner)

The three are such a powerhouse at helping your immune system to fend off sickness in a quicker healthier way along with eating a healthy diet filled with other nutrients the body needs!

    So happy to have found something I can give to my baby to help build immunity. She loves it too!

  6. Taylor Lancaster (verified owner)

    I give this to my 1 year old everyday to help prevent sickness and it has worked so well. My husband and I also take it if we feel we need extra immune support or sickness coming on. One of my friend’s children were getting sick constantly and have now been healthy since they started taking this product!

  7. Katrina M (verified owner)

    We use this product daily in our house of 18m old to 30y old, along with the adaptogenic, vit c, and sinus saver. While using these products daily, I immediately noticed that while we did still CATCH colds/URI’s, the symptoms were DRASTICALLY lessened. Kiddos never went off food, never stopped sleeping through the night, boogers stayed loose and clear, coughs stayed productive, and they were down on the couch for only 1 day, versus 3-5 like their peers. Have the cough b gone, immune biotic, sleepy time, and feel better fast in your arsenal when sickness strikes, and we use them 3x daily at that point. LOVE ALL THESE PRODUCTS.

  8. Vicki B (verified owner)

    This was so helpful dealing with sicknesses these last few months. My kids happily took it and it reduced our usual 2+ weeks of sickness.

  9. Miranda (verified owner)

    A staple in our home. It’s on the counter for frequent use every time someone falls ill or is exposed to illness in our household. It’s been especially helpful to add to my toddlers water and he doesn’t mind the taste at all!

  11. Summer (verified owner)

    Kids Elderberry. I give this to my 1 and 7 year old when I think a cold is coming on, when they have been around someone whose sick or if anyone in the family is under the weather. They have not been sick in months. I would highly recommend this product!

  12. Sarah (verified owner)

    My favorite Elderberry syrup! Because it is an elixir it is affordable for my large family. Love it!

  13. Elizabeth Escoffery

    Best elderberry tincture hands down. I like to consume elderberry without all the added sugar that some products include. These bottles last quite awhile.

  14. Amanda Davila (verified owner)

    This has been a game changer when my family gets sick! Helps us get through the symptoms fast!

  15. Rebekah Johnston (verified owner)

    COULD NOT LIVE WITHOUT!!! When I say this product has changed my toddlers life, I am
    NOT kidding. It has been amazing for immune support.. and decreasing the amount of times he has been sick! As a nurse practitioner, I try my best to ensure my children get the best nutrients! I have even gotten a few friends on this!!!! Run, don’t walk!

  16. Liz

    We bought this for us and kids and love both! I’m so glad to have this on hand.

  17. Allie (verified owner)

    I bought the original formula and have loved it! My husband and I have started to get a cough and sore throat a few times this spring. We immediately started taking this and it never turned into full-blown sickness like normal! My husband dislikes the taste (he says it smells like Christmas but doesn’t taste that way) but I find that if I mix it in a glass of water it’s not bad at all! Definitely not as strong as some of the other tinctures (like postpartum balance).

  18. Mrs. Autumn Dorine Kesuma (verified owner)

    I love this product. My 9 year old son was given an Albuterol inhaler by his pediatrician and I was not happy with this approach. I purchased (Original formula) Elderberry Elixir to combat his respiratory issues. It addresses inflammation. I give him ten drops once a day proactively. I am happy to say that he hasn’t used his inhaler for MONTHS.
    If he has symptoms of illness, I immediately start giving him 10 drops 3 times a day until the illness is over. I have also used the (Original formula) Elderberry Elixir for every single member of my family from toddler to adult IF they exhibit symptoms of illness. It’s great to bring when we are traveling! I have no problem getting anyone to take it as I mix it with the toddler’s milk and everyone else’s glass of water.
    Do yourself a favor: buy the smallest size and do a little experiment to see if it helps your family breeze through those pesky sicknesses without having the symptoms escalate.

  19. Heaven Fraley (verified owner)

    This stuff is amazing. It also doubles as a mouth rinse if you take it before bed and swish really well.

  20. Jess (verified owner)

    I love the elderberry elixir. I love that it’s a clean product, without added sugar or other unnecessary additives, and it works! It’s my go-to for myself and my kids during cold and flu season, and I love that a little goes a long way!
