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.

    I love this for daily use to help boost my children’s immune system. It tastes great & I feel good about giving it to them!

  2. Aundrea Parker (verified owner)

    Last year we got sick rather frequently, and my son ended up with croup almost every month. This year we started taking elderberry elixir daily in October and haven’t had any major illness at all. Occasional runny noses and mild colds that haven’t spread to everyone in the household is about the worst we’ve had. Still taking it daily even though it’s summertime, and we don’t plan on stopping.

  3. Britney Thompson

    So I use the original adult one.

    Once you taste it, you can tell it’s all REAL herbs and ingredients. I swear by this stuff though. I am rarely sick and when I do feel like I’m getting the slightest tickle in my throat, I’ll use this and be fine in the next 24 hours.

    I should be using it more regularly than I am, but I am definitely way more intentional about it in the winter and it shows when everyone else is sick but I am not!

  4. Kristian Brehm (verified owner)

    Love this elderberry elixir! My kids take it easily and are getting the added immune boost!

  5. Kathryn Pezzica (verified owner)

    I use to take Emergen-C when I felt I might be coming down with something. Then I switched to elderberry elixir and I love it! I take it a couple times a day when I start to get a scratchy or sore throat. Then I feel all better!

  6. amywagner711 (verified owner)

    So affordable and really seems to work. This is a staple in our cupboard. I love homemade elderberry syrup, but it’s not shelf-stable like this. Highly recommend!

  7. Shannon (verified owner)

    One of my favorite tinctures! My children take this every single day! They’ve been taking this for MONTHS now, maybe almost a year and I’ve noticed a huge difference! First, they don’t get sick as much anymore and when they do, it doesn’t last as long and their symptoms aren’t very bad at all!! Everything just seems to be over with so quickly! I highly recommend!

  8. Lauren Ragsdale (verified owner)

    I bought this when my 1 year old started daycare because we were all constantly sick and I’m convinced that it made a world of difference, both in helping her build her immune system and helping us prevent illness as well. The taste is almost undetectable in coffee and teas and if I can taste it then it’s a nutty note that I really like! Great product!

  9. Kara (verified owner)

    Would not want to be without having elderberry tincture- truly helps ward off sickness and also shortens sickness time- both adult version and kids version works well- and the kids version has great taste making it easy to take!

    I like the Elderberry Elixir Kids formula . It helped us all to stay healthy this past winter. The regular formula has cloves in it which are super strong so that’s what I went with the Kids formula the second time I bought this product .

  11. Tori

    This stuff is fantastic! It’s the first thing my husband and I reach for when we start feeling under the weather. My mom started to come down with a cold so I had her take this, the Vit-C tincture, earache ease, and the lymphatic drainage cream. She still had a cold but compared to how sick she normally gets when she gets colds, it was very minor! For her, it easily spreads to her chest/lungs when she gets sick, but this time it did not! And because of this, she is now an Earthley customer too (:

    I have bad anxiety when my son gets sick. This stuff is incredible for so many reasons, but in a time that I feel helpless and I know his body needs to fight the illness, Elderberry gives me the assurance that I’m giving him something that is actually HELPING his body fight the illness. My son takes elderberry for kids every single night and has since he was 6 months old. He loves the taste and asks for it! IT’S THE BEST!!

  13. Makayla Schultz (verified owner)

    Our whole family loves this and our kids ask for it daily! The flavor is the best we’ve ever tried!
