Elderberry Syrup + Foraged Mushrooms • 100% organic • 4 oz bottle
NEW FORMULA! This special blend of freshly foraged elderberries + mushrooms is a unique twist on traditional elderberry syrup and can be a natural ally for your immune system. We craft our syrup by infusing our fresh, wildcrafted elderberries and medicinal mushrooms on low heat for 12 hours and then add our local raw, cruelty-free honey to sweeten. We then add some of our Wellness Elixir to help prevent spoiling and add an additional boost of plant healing. The final blend is extra potent yet still delicious.
The shelf-life of this blend is approximately 6 weeks but we advise to keep it refrigerated at all times and to stick it in the freezer if not planning on using within 4 weeks.
What makes our Elderberry Syrup different than most others? We infuse medicinal mushrooms, ashwagandha, echinacea and orange peels to give your immune system a serious kick and then add some ginger to give it a warming antibacterial boost (it also helps with nausea). This yummy syrup can either used daily to help boost your immune system or during acute illness to help shorten your cold + flu symptoms. The honey we use is cruelty-free, chemical-free and locally harvested by eco-friendly apiarists here in the PNW.
Directions -- For adults: Take 1 Tablespoons daily for daily boost and every 3-4 hours when actively sick. For children: Take 1 teaspoon daily for a daily boost and every 3-4 hours when actively sick. Please keep refrigerated.
Each bottle is handcrafted at a low-temperature to ensure freshness and to preserve the healing properties in the honey. There are no artificial preservatives, dyes, or flavoring.

What is an Elixir? Elixirs are strong herbal extracts that pull the beneficial properties of a plant into an alcohol and honey base. Place a dropper or two straight into your mouth or into 2-4oz of water and take up to three times a day as needed. We have elixirs that can help with allergies, headaches, sleep, stress, colds and flu, stomach upset, etc. They're a great little remedy for your first aid arsenal and are quite effective for minor illnesses!
How to Elixirs differ from Tinctures? Elixirs are the same as tinctures but made with honey as well :)
How do you take the Elixirs/Tinctures? These remedies can both be taken either "neat" under the tongue or dissolved in a small amount of your favorite beverage.
How much alcohol is in each dose? The amount of alcohol in each dose is very small -- each dropper of elixir contains very little alcohol. According to our sources, the amount of each dropper of 40% alcohol (80proof) is "equivalent to 1/65th of a can of beer or 1/85th of an 8-ounce glass of wine. In addition, if you place the dropper-full into 2 ounces of water, that mixture would contain only 0.59% alcohol" (The Herbal Academy).
How long do the elixirs/tinctures last? Our Elixirs and Tinctures are shelf stable and will last several years without refrigeration.
Do you offer alcohol-free remedies? We sure do! If you can't find them under our Apothecary section, please search for "Alcohol-Free ACV" remedies. Our ACV blends are also vegan-friendly and will not come with honey mixed into the blend (you can always add some honey to your blend after purchase if you are not vegan and wish to add something sweet for taste). These alcohol-free remedies will last 12-18 months since ACV is a weaker preservative than alcohol.
Do you have vegan-friendly tinctures? Yes, all of our Alcohol-Free (ACV) blends are still made without honey and are vegan friendly!
How long does your Elderberry Syrup/Cough Syrup last? We make our syrups with 25% alcohol in order to keep them shelf-stable. They should last indefinitely unopened but there are many other factors that can increase risk of spoiling once they are opened, including temperature, mold spores, dust, and bacterial contamination with fingers or mouths. Please keep the cough syrups refrigerated and try to use within 6 weeks after opening. If unable to finish the bottle within 6 weeks, you may freeze the remaining for later use.
Wait, I've heard that essential oils are poisonous and toxic to your health. Why do you use them? While there have been some concerns over the popularity and over-use of essential oils (especially from MLM companies like DoTerra and Young Living) we don't come from the belief that essential oils are inherently toxic in nature. Although essential oils do contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs), we believe that the responsible use of essential oils that are in compliance with the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy (such as only using a gentle 3-5% essential oil ratio, avoiding internal usage, and conservative use of essential oils in the elderly, children and those with serious medical conditions) is a safe and therapeutic way to use this type of plant medicine.
Although essential oils are simply aromatic distillates of plant matter, we believe in the alchemical model of plant medicine and feel that the plant's essential oils contain the soul of the plant itself. Combining the essential oil of the plant with the infused whole-plant remedy is our way of offering a well-rounded plant remedy to you. We source all of our essential oils from responsible companies (mainly from Mountain Rose Herbs) and hope to buy our own distiller sometime in the near future so we can process our own ethically-made hydrosols and essential oils.
Do you offer wholesale? Yes we do! We love our wholesale stockists and would love to collaborate with you! Please email us at email@example.com for wholesale requests.
