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.

    Earthley’s Elderberry is now my MUST HAVE for year-round health. When I first started using it I only took it when I felt like I was starting to come down with something. Now, I take it daily as a preventative measure. With cold and flu season in full swing I feel like it has kept me from getting sick . I have the 2, 4 and 8 oz bottles, the only issue I have had is the threading on the dropper for the 8 oz bottle doesn’t attach securely as it’s not the proper threading. So, if you’re going to take it somewhere with you make sure that you put the cap back on it so it’s secure. I keep my large bottle at home now that I know this and will use the dropper to refill my smaller bottles.

    Love love love this stuff!! It taste great, easy to get my kids to take.. they actually ask for it. And, it works!! The amount of illness and colds going around always by pass my kids! This is a staple for everyone’s medicine cabinet!

  3. bethanyseto (verified owner)

    Since my son and I started to take this daily a couple of months ago, neither of us has been sick. It is strong to take directly from the bottle, but diluting it in even just a tablespoon of water makes it much better 🙂

    I had never heard of elderberry until finding Earthley. So I thinking it was going to be a long cold-ridden winter I thought I would give it a shot but when I received the regular version I couldn’t take it, it was so bitter and was like having a dropper full of fire. So I contacted Earthley and they sent out the kids version which I have been taking daily every since. It’s not only delicious but I have yet (knock on wood) to be sick and it’s now spring! I will be taking this year round. Clearly it’s a great protector from random germs and when you have kids and go to the library a lot you’re bound to catch something. Highly recommend.

    I wanted to give this a try as the reviews are great, but unfortunately it hasn’t worked for my family. I tried both tinctures, the one for kids and the original one

    The first bottle I got was to try it out, and found it was very effective in keeping me from getting the bug that was going around at work. I shared the rest of that bottle with a friend at church who was miserable with a cold. The next day she came in perky and feeling so much better, her doctor said it would run its course in 3-4 days. The cold almost immediately went away when she started taking the drops. She didn’t want to relinquish my bottle, so I let her keep it. I bought another bottle and took it whenever I got the multiple sneezing attacks, which usually indicate I’m about to catch something. It has kept me healthy so far this bad flu season. A guy at work has been battling the bug since December, so I gave him my 2nd bottle of elixir and he tells me this morning that he is feeling better than he has in a long time, after just 1 day! So I told him to keep the bottle and enjoy it and now I am buying another one for myself! This stuff is great.

    Love this stuff! Of course, since the original formula uses alcohol, the taste can be pretty strong if you don’t follow it with some water immediately, but it has helped me not get sick during this cold/flu season despite my children still getting colds (who haven’t been taking it, I finally got them the kids formula.) Definitely recommend this!

  8. mariaholderdavis (verified owner)

    I absolutely LOVE my Elderberry Elixer and can’t imagine not having it as a staple in my house. I keep it on hand year round now instead of just seasonally as it works wonders. Not only does Earthley has amazing products but they also have stellar customer service. Thank YOU!!!!

  9. kaiteemmons

    Incredible stuff! This is the first item I ever had purchased on Earthley. I have begun dipping my toe in natural sorts of remedies for our family and my toddler. I decided to start with this and vitamin C. We lasted so far the ENTIRE flu season without once getting sick!! This includes: being around people who are sick, being around people who don’t tell you they are sick but then you hear their child coughing like they’re going to pass out, my toddler putting something in her mouth that another sick young one just took out of hers, etc. My toddler loves the flavor- she calls it nummy nummies, so it’s a treat when she gets it.
    When I have taken it, when I feel something coming on, I can liken the experience to feeling like I am holding up a strong shield. I don’t feel like my body is having to do a lot of work to ward of illness, and I’m strengthened!
    Any time my toddler is around other kids for a playdate, I’m sure to follow up with some nummy nummies to ward off any potential bugs.
    So impressed with this product, I just placed a massive order for a ton of other products to try! Can’t wait to check it all out 🙂

    I was surprised to see some people complain about the taste. I think it tastes really good and the fact that my 12 year old son will take it (and likes it) is a true testament since he hates everything! I think it has kept the colds away so far this winter.

  11. Julie Bartos

    This product is great! Usually by this season of the year I would have had a bad cold, but this has kept it at bay! I even took my Elderberry elixir with me on my Greek Islands Cruise in September!

  12. Destiny Juarez (verified owner)

    My family loves this!

  13. Cora Soleil

    Stay healthy. Prevent illness. Seriously, it’s kid friendly, it’s amazing. What more could any crunchy mama ask for? 10/10. It’s sugar free and no icky “natural” flavoring (bleh!) If you want something 100%clean for your picky littles this “sick season” this is absolutely the go to crunchy product of 2018, without a doubt. This is the most popular AND most effective holistic essential I’ve ever seen. My family loves it!

    We own a busy beer & liquor retail store so we are on the front lines of every virus that sweeps through the public, and in past years it showed with us catching *everything*. This past year, I bought this stuff for the first time and gave it to my family religiously…..and the one and only time they got sick was when we slacked off on taking it for a week after a vacation, and as soon as we started taking it again the sick symptoms immediately went away. I swear by this now, and wouldnt be without it!! Best money I think I have ever spent on a health product!!

  15. Katie (verified owner)

    I love this stuff. It tastes good, my two year old likes it, and it really does work for helping to kick colds faster, and to prevent sickness.

  16. Elauth7312

    I’ll never buy another elderberry syrup/liquid from anywhere else. My kids take this without anything to drink and they never complain. I give it to them when they are going to be exposed to a lot of people or if they are feeling a little sick. Thank you for making this!

  17. Kimberly (verified owner)

    Love this stuff! Gave it to my 3 little kids last winter and they hardly got sick at all! They didnt mind the taste either which is a huge plus!

  18. Lisa Kissinger (verified owner)

    If I could give this 10 stars, I would. I gave this to my kids during their last cold, and they recovered so much faster. I started feeling like I was coming down with it, so I used this along with vitamin C and some other remedies, and it never materialized. SO HAPPY with this product!

  19. Beth Rogers (verified owner)

    Love this product! The kids version tastes so good my daughter takes it straight and I love the extra herbs to boost the immune system. It’s a staple in our house.

  20. sydniebrenske (verified owner)

    Elderberry Elixir is great! I always wanted to make my own Elderberry Syrup, but just didn’t have the time to seek out reliable, organic ingredients. Not to mention it goes bad over time, so I would have to repeat the process. But this Elderverry Elixir is awesome because it’s shelf stable and you don’t need very much! Just a dropper full and you’re good to go. Kept us from getting sick at all last winter and I just ordered more for this one!
