I began learning about natural medicine almost 7 years ago.
Specifically for my two little boys who had been born premature and frequently had respiratory issues.
At time they were 3 & 5 years old. In the winter they would catch one thing after another, very often spending months of a time on antibiotics and nebulizer treatments. I needed/wanted them to have a better quality of life.
I began using Doterra essential oils as well as elderberry syrup.
After several months of using store-bought elderberry syrup daily as a preventative they were a little better but it was getting VERY expensive.
I began researching and learning more about elderberry. The recipe I started with was this one, https://wellnessmama.com/1888/elderberry-syrup/ I loved it! We all did!! I then learned that elderberries grown wild here in TN. I also have them growing on my property. I learned how to harvest them and safely preserve them. I learned that home made elderberry seems to be so much more potent! I adapted this recipe a little to our own tastes and used it for 3 years after that. Between elderberry and essential oils we could now enjoy our winters again. My children, (all 6 of them) stay much healthier! My family and friends began to notice as well. I began sharing our elderberry syrup with every batch I made.
In 2017 I made a dozen jars, took a picture, and posted it on Facebook that I had some for sale.
Within 5 minutes all 12 jars were spoken for!
With that, Elderberry Mom was born!
I am a mom to six wonderful blessings.
I have used elderberry syrup for almost 7 years alongside essential oils to boost our immune systems.
When I make this for y’all, I make it just as I do for my children.
With the utmost care!
I am sure to cook the berries at the right temperature and for the proper length of time so it is safe for all of us.
That being said, my elderberry syrup isn’t tested or approved by the FDA or anyone else.
Every purchase makes me happy that I can share this wonderful resource with y’all!
Thank you all so much for supporting this small business!
