Our certified organic elderberry hydrosol is steam distilled from the fruit of the elderberry bush. These berry-filled bushes are intentionally cultivated for the purpose of hydrosol distillation right here in the USA. The purple berries of the Sambucus caerulea create a hydrosol that is gentle and slightly sweet. Elderberry hydrosol helps boost the immune system and is perfect for helping to avoid getting sick during cold and flu season.
While the benefits of elderberry are still being researched and explored, this dark purple berry has been used medicinally for centuries. Aromatherapists often use elderberry hydrosol to help with joint inflammation, blood purification, and to clear lung congestion. Early studies show that elderberry hydrosol can help reduce unwelcome viral activity relating to issues such as the flu, herpes outbreaks, and shingles. Elderberry hydrosol is also considered an antioxidant.
Our favorite use for our elderberry hydrosol is as a tonic for immune support. Try drinking 1-2 teaspoons of this hydrosol in 8-12 ounces of filtered water every day for about a week to help boost your immune system!
