Sambucus nigra

Elder flowers are sweet, dry, bitter and neutral with a secondary cooling effect. Their actions on the body are anti-inflammatory, anti-catarrhal, diaphoretic – which means they promote sweating and reduce fevers, promote expectoration and calm down mucus production. For the skin they help clear sores and boils, softening deposits, draining fluid congestion and clearing inflammation, heat and toxins. In my creams Elder contributes a lightness, bringing energies of dispersing, normalizing, restoring.

for respiratory infection with immune support

$70.00

220mls Essential for the first aid cupboard. Infections these days are scary and the resistance of so many infections to anti-biotic treatments means that it is essential to have back up treatments. This mix is one I have been making for 30 years. When it doesn't work for my latest infection I remix or redesign it. My clients and I start using it just as soon as we feel the infection start - with that sore throat or headache or runny nose. It often stops the infection before it gets going.

Contains: 
220mls of tinctures of astragalus, echinacea, passionflower, lavender, licorice, mullein, myrrh, sage, elder flowers and berries, ginger, thuja, lomatium, peppermint, cleavers, feverfew.
