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 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.

    Seriously love this stuff! I don’t trust the stuff at stores and don’t have time to make it myself, so this tincture is perfect for my needs. It stops colds from getting worse and is always stocked in my house!

  2. Susan Muckelroy

    I recently bought the elderberry elixir for my family after the price of dried elderberries outrageously high! It has a great flavor that we all love and I know we are getting the important immune support we need this time of year. Shipping was fast and customer support was fantastic!!! Thank you Earthly!

  3. ashaffer89 (verified owner)

    I love that I get to use this for my baby instead of the flu shot! I’ve been looking for elderberry that doesn’t have all the sugar, dyes, and other junk most products have. I also love that it’s an elixir and will last the whole flu season. Can’t wait to try it out. Armed with this, breast milk , and my baby’s kick a$$ immune system (partly attributed by playing in and eating dirt ) we will actually enjoy the winter! Thank you earthly

    Love love love!!!

    I know some people will say, yeah right! But honestly, my 6 month old has had a cough for a week. I took her to the doctor and everything, they told me to bring her back in a week if it hasn’t gone away. We were one day away from the 1 week mark so I have her half a dropper full and she has not coughed since!! I promise!! I was so shocked and wish I would’ve had it a week ago! This stuff is like magic and the taste isn’t bad, I dropped it directly into her mouth and she didn’t mind it at all!! So far I’m 2 for 2 of these products, can’t wait to try the pest aside I bought! Thank you guys for your AMAZING products!!

  6. R. Keesling (verified owner)

    So grateful for this product. We were using the original Elderberry and it was a Hassel to get the little ones to take it. The taste is very strong. They love the new formula for kids! This is our go to for illnesses ir when we need an immune boost.

  7. Erin Fisher (verified owner)

    This stuff is incredible! I don’t think I will ever be without it in our home again! After relocating my kids came down with cold after cold as they were exposed to new kids and new environments. After using this product regularly the amount of colds significantly reduced and so did their intensity and duration. In fact, my husband and I came down with the same cold, he was away and did not take the elixir but I did. His symptoms were intense and lasted a week, mine was minimal and lasted two days. 🙂 This stuff is great!

  8. Jordan Kirkpatrick (verified owner)

    AMAZING PRODUCT – it keeps the sickness at bay all winter!!! Must have for any natural medicine cabinet. Myself and my kids use this all winter long.

  9. Kimberly Hamilton (verified owner)

    I use this elderberry elixir daily for myself and my little guy and we both have stayed very healthy even during the worst cold and flu seasons. I put it in my tea every morning with a little raw honey and it’s wonderful. I can’t take it by itself due to the strong taste. With my little guy I just add it to his almond/coconut milk and he doesn’t even notice. Something I stock up on and definitely wouldn’t do without! This is a must have for everyone!

  10. Saylor Link (verified owner)

    I swear by this stuff as a daily supplement or to help kick that sickness. My 2yo and I have stayed healthy as a horse while this crazy flu season is ravaging everyone.

  11. Donna Y (verified owner)

    The taste of the original is WHOA (super strong) on its own, but it disappears nicely into a bit of juice! No problem getting my kids to take it that way. As people around us have been sick over and over this winter, we have stayed healthy, even my husband, who shakes a lot of hands and gets a lot of hugs in his role at work. I credit this tincture, as it’s the only new thing in our health routine. The few times an illness has tried to start, we switched to Immune-Biotic, which knocked it out.

  12. Lil S. (verified owner)

    Hard to take but so worth it! I took it along with the immune-biotic at the onset of a cold and I truly feel like it helped. I was taking the recommended 30 drops of each (about 3 droppers full of each) and it was really hard to swallow with the taste. Now this was my first experience with elderberry so not sure how it compares to others. Then I wised up and mixed in a tiny bit of juice and it was much better to shoot it all at once.

  13. josie Cole (verified owner)

    I’ve always used elderberry – and this stuff truly does work ! It helped cut our colds in half and the symptoms weren’t as Intense as they would have been if we hadn’t used this. I love this tincture so much and it’s mild tasting as well !

  14. Brenda Good (verified owner)

    I use to get really sick every year. Well not this year. I am feeling so much better. I even got my mom hooked on it.

  15. Dierdra (verified owner)

    Wonderful product with great results!

  16. Aimee L. (verified owner)

    My family has been taking Elderberry Elixir off and on this winter, and not one of us has come down with a cold or the flu. This is the first time that has ever happened. I have made elderberry syrup in the past, but I prefer taking smaller doses with the elixir and the fact that it is shelf-stable (my syrup requires refrigeration). I recently tried the new Kids’ Elderberry Elixir, and it is even better! No difficult-to-swallow strong alcohol flavor. My son describes the flavor of the kids’ version as tasting like jam. Thank you for this product!

  17. Kati Hutchins (verified owner)

    The kids is still very strong! I have to fight my toddler to take it. Works very well, just not very tasty!

  18. Mockingbird Farm (verified owner)

    Lots of people around me have been sick but I just keep taking this elixir. I like it much better than the overly sweet elderberry syrups I’ve tried in the past. I was feeling a little something coming on a few weeks ago, sniffly and such, and I started taking this and the Immune Biotic and never did get whatever it was. Hooray!

  19. Stephanie Buck (verified owner)

    This Elderberry Elixir really helped me get over a virus quickly. Then, now that I am recovered, I take the Elderberry Elixir each day as a preventative. Historically I have had a weak immune system, but I have not been sick in two months, even through this terrible flu season! Thank you!!

  20. AdoptMom2 (verified owner)

    I can’t say enough about this Elderberry tincture. I purchased it in November around Thanksgiving and my older son and I have been faithful with taking it daily (sometime 2x when the illnesses have been raging around us!). My husband ended up with the “flu” (although he tested negative) in early January that proceeded to pneumonia and was out of work for 3 weeks. I had him quarantined so the rest of us wouldn’t get it AND we DID NOT! My youngest son who has sensory processing doesn’t like the stronger taste but I sneak it drinks. He has had a cold a few times but my older son and I have not! I swear by it! When I feel I might be coming down with something, I take the Immune Biotic as well. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!! It’s been a nasty “flu/cold” season and we’re going to keep taking this daily to help our immune system stay healthy! In addition, I’ve had mold exposure, chronic inflammation and some gut compromise/issues and I’m sure it’s helped my immune system to improve!
