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.

    I love this stuff! It has been really helpful to my family to keep us from getting sick. We take it as a preventative. I love that it has a long shelf life and is made from organic herbs and elderberries.

  2. abalarezo116 (verified owner)

    We have been using this daily during the season and more doses when I notice sickness coming on and it seems to have been helping a lot! I love that a few drops goes a long way for the kiddos and that it’s shelf stable!

  3. Mary (verified owner)

    Love this. I have made my own Elderberry syrup, but sometimes when I am out of it, it is so nice to just be able to grab this when someone is coming down with something.

  4. Kelly (verified owner)

    Every household should have this. I didn’t try it until after I’d gotten sick, but I do think it helped with my recovery. I also believe it has helped my husband and I not get sick again. We take it every morning!

  5. Ranelle Moles (verified owner)

    Love the health benefits! It tastes a bit strong, but I am able to handle it diluted with a drink!

  6. DRM (verified owner)

    The Elderberry Elixir seems to be pretty good. I’ve been taking it, especially when around a lot of others. The alcohol taste in it is very strong. It tastes like you are drinking an adult beverage. I wish they could use something else that would make it shelf stable. I much prefer the Illness and Prevention kits Earthley sells for $10. I try to keep one of them in the house at all times to be able to make Elderberry syrup when needed.

  7. Kate (verified owner)

    I purchased a small bottle of this and I love it. Ever since having mono my immune system has taken a hit. I take a few drops every day and I haven’t been sick since! I recommend this to everyone.

  8. Ashley (verified owner)

    This is a great product for when we’re sick and either run out of elderberry syrup or it’s last thing all day and my husband or toddler forgot to eat any, and we just want to get some good stuff in before bed. So convenient!

  9. Emily (verified owner)

    I LOVE this stuff! We’ve been using it everyday this cold/flu season and not a single one of us has been sick! I love how it’s shelf-stable and sugar-free too!

  10. Erin (verified owner)

    Elderberry is such an important tool in my arsenal against this awful flu going around! We began taking it in the fall, and are still taking it. Despite numerous friends being ill, some more than once, we have remained healthy all winter!

  11. Mary Caraza (verified owner)

    I’ve used elderberry for several years, usually making a syrup or gummies. Sometimes my kids love that, but sometimes they’re fussy about taking it. This tincture is great, because it’s so much easier to get 10 drops in a cranky 3 year old then spoonfuls of syrup or bites of gummy. Especially this flu season, I’m so grateful for this excellent product.

  12. Danielle Hofer

    So much easier than traditional syrups, just a little goes a long way! My kids love the taste and is really unnoticeable when mixed into the drink of your choice.

  13. Liz Ticona

    Love this elderberry elixir !! I take it daily and give it to my 2 & 5 year olds boys . I believe it’s keeping us healthier , specially during these times of high flu rates in this area . Thanks for making such a great product and natural too . Highly recommend it !!

  14. Morgan Marshall (verified owner)

    This is the best elderberry ever. We take it as needed, or daily during illnesses, and it hasn’t failed us yet! Although it is strong, we mix with honey or water and it completely masks the flavor – but it’s benefits are so worth it we don’t mind a bit.

  15. Jessica (verified owner)

    As with most of Earthy’s tinctures, I wish there was more thorough usage directions on the bottle, since I can’t remember what the daily dose is, and the bottle only lists the larger dose for when you’re feeling under the weather. That said, my family of 6 has not had more than a day or 2 of mere sniffles this past year, amidst the terrible flu season we have been surrounded with. We don’t get flu shots, and this is the only change we’ve made to our routine, so I’m giving it full credit for keeping us healthy this year! This was the first product I ever ordered from Earthly, and it truly tastes awful, but we dilute it in water most of the time, and even the kids do fine, though they cringe a bit! Thank you, Earthly, for this amazing product!

  16. Kara Warner (verified owner)

    I love elderberry everything, but when I’m sick or needing a quick immune boost after being in public or exposure to illness, I prefer the ease of a shelf stable tincture that won’t go bad and doesn’t require cooking.

  17. Tiffany Paff (verified owner)

    Total life saver. I often make my own but with two little ones I don’t always keep up and don’t want to make it when I’m sick. This is perfect to have on hand as it last forever but works just as well!

  18. Brenda Good (verified owner)

    I have used this regularly during this winter. I usually get sick every year. This year the most I’ve had is the sniffles.

  19. Jean (verified owner)

    Powerful elderberry boost to the immune system! We had a rough January with lots of illness. Since getting this, we have not gotten ill. Not that anything is a cure all, but this is definitely helpful. I felt achy a few days ago and had a low fever, so I took another dose immediately, and I woke up fine the next morning.
    It does have a very strong alcohol and spice taste, so I mix it with either a little juice, tea, or kefir. My 2 year old doesn’t ever notice or complain if it’s mixed in this way.

  20. Rosemary Dewers (verified owner)

    We’ve been taking this elixir as a daily preventative and so far so good! Not even a sniffle this season! It is very strong, but I don’t mind because it tastes like Christmas! I mix it with juice for my husband and have thought it might be awesome in some mulled wine (don’t judge, haha). Six thumbs up from our family (two of those thumbs only get it through my breast milk so far, but he still counts!). 100% recommend!
