Organic Elderberry Syrup
Organic Elderberry Syrup
Our organic elderberry syrup is 100% organic, made with elderberries, rosehips, echinacea, fresh ginger, lemon peel, orange peel, cinnamon, cloves and local raw honey.
Each jar comes with a ‘suggested use’ label on the bottom of the bottle.
We do not add thickening agents, refined sweeteners, preservatives, stabilizers or anything artificial to our syrup (like some store bought brands do).
Because our syrup is a thinner consistency, it is easier to add to your drinks and easier for kids to enjoy, it is also more wholesome & pure than store bought brands, so you get more bang for your buck!
We add local raw honey after the product is completely cooled so that it is still RAW, meaning it still contains all of its natural benefits including Bee Pollen and Bee Propolis.
The American Academy of Pediatrics advises against the introduction of anything other than breast milk, formula and necessary medications before 6 months, so no elderberry supplementation is appropriate before then. This syrup contains raw honey and is NOT intended for children under 1 year due to the risk of botulism.
Please note that we do offer an unsweetened version of this elderberry syrup, that does not contain honey or any other type of sweetener of any kind, so this is an option if you would like to feed it to your baby under one year or for any other reason you may need an unsweetened version
While this syrup will likely last 6 months or longer, we advise to use within 3 months of purchasing, or you may freeze it for up to 1+ year. If freezing, we recommend using an ice cube tray with a lid. The cubes of elderberry syrup can be defrosted individually for a serving size dose, as needed, depending how often you choose to take your elderberry syrup.
As with any liquid beverage, do not double dip a serving spoon, syringe or other serving utensil into the jar, or drink directly from the jar, to prevent bacterial growth, for optimal shelf life.

HOW DO YOU STORE ELDERBERRY SYRUP AND HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
There are no preservatives, thickeners, stabilizers, artificial sweeteners or additives of any kind in our elderberry syrup, so it must be refrigerated. We have found that shaking your jar often helps preserve it longer. Our elderberry syrup may last for varying lengths of time but we have discovered 60-90 days is usually minimum. It also freezes well (especially in cubes so you can defrost in small servings as needed) in which it will last for over 1 year.
IS ELDERBERRY SYRUP SAFE DURING PREGNANCY OR WHILE NURSING?
It simply has not been researched conclusively to give a straight answer to this question, so we recommend consulting your healthcare provider before taking any new supplement or medication. (Message from the owner: “Personally, I made the choice to continue the use of elderberry syrup on a daily basis throughout both of my pregnancies and nursing my babies with no adverse affects. Still, I advise you to make your own decision with the help of your professional healthcare provider”).
IS ELDERBERRY SYRUP SAFE FOR KIDS?
Generally, elderberry syrup is safe for children over 1 year of age, but is not recommended for children under 1 year as it contains honey. However, we do offer custom batches upon request of either unsweetened, maple syrup sweetened or any other ingredient you may need left out for any reason. Send us a message regarding custom orders.
HOW IS OUR SYRUP IS DIFFERENT THAN OTHERS ON THE MARKET?
As we’ve mentioned above, we do not add any preservatives, thickeners, stabilizers, artificial sweeteners or additives of any kind. We sweeten our syrup with local raw unfiltered honey rather than the alternative glucose/sugars. Our syrup is also nearly half the cost of store bought syrup, and without all the additives, you get even more bang for your buck. We also create our syrup in small batches that are carefully tended to from start to finish, so you get the best quality every single time!
