Product Details

Elder Berry (Sambucus nigra), also known as elderberry, black elder, or European elder, is a flowering shrub native to Europe, but cultivated worldwide. Holders of a rich history, elderberries have been used for centuries in various cultures.

Medicinally, elderflower, the cream-colored blooms of the Sambucus nigra plant, has been used in teas and tinctures to treat coughs, colds, and flu symptoms. While some studies suggest elderberry may shorten the duration of colds, more research is needed to confirm its effectiveness.

Culinary uses for elderberries are vast. Once fully ripe, the berries can be transformed into jams, jellies, wines, and cordials. The flowers can also be used to flavor beverages and baked goods. However, due to the toxins, it’s recommended to cook elderberries thoroughly before consumption.

Beyond medicinal and culinary uses, Elder Berry also holds significance in magical practices. In some cultures, elder is associated with protection and purification. The wood was used to create wands, and the berries were incorporated into rituals for warding off evil spirits
