ELDERBERRY SYRUP TINCTURES
You’ve probably heard that elderberry is great for health and boosting the immune system…how about an easier, more cost-effective way to get it? Where it will never get forgotten about in the back of the fridge to eventually spoil???
Enter: Elderberry Tincture
It’s an alcohol-based or glycerin based tincture that’s super-concentrated and completely shelf-stable. It won’t go bad before you can use it all, and you only need a few drops per dose!
It’s not just elderberry either! It also contains other healthy ingredients such as ginger, clove, cinnamon and local raw honey for an all-around immune boost. Keep your family healthy this winter…naturally and more easily with an Elderberry Syrup Tincture!
For this tincture I have taken all the same ingredients I use in my Elderberry Syrup and infused it 80 proof vodka OR Non GMO vegetable glycerin for months. It has all the same benefits as the syrup but is super concentrated in a 1oz convenient size bottle- easy for travel and requires no refrigeration.
Organic Dried Elderberry, Organic Cinnamon, Organic Ginger, Organic Cloves, Local Honey, 80 proof Vodka OR Non-GMO Vegetable Glycerin option is also available.
**NOT to be given to babies under 1 year of age as this product contains local raw honey**.
Using your tincture:
One of the wonderful things about this immune-boosting tincture is that it will help you out whether you’re sick or not. If you’ve been around someone with the sniffles or a cough, or you just want to make sure you’re keeping your immune system up, take a dropperful of the tincture.
If you’ve already come down with something, this tincture will still help you by building up your immune system and giving it ammunition against the virus or bacteria your’re battling. Taking just a few drops mixed with water, juice or tea more frequently can help kick that cold to curb-fast!!!!
For Immune Support Maintenance: Adults-1 dropperful daily. Children-1/2 dropperful daily. If ill, take suggested dose every 3 hours until symptoms subside.
Tinctures are extracted most often in alcohol because it is such a potent solvent. Some herbs simply will not release their medicinal qualities to a solvent that is less potent, such as water, apple cider vinegar or vegetable glycerine. It takes something stronger, and alcohol is perfect. It also acts as an effective preservative. Alcohol-based tinctures have a virtually unlimited shelf life if stored in a cool, dark location. Refrigeration is not necessary.

HOW DO I TAKE THE EXTRACT? Shake well. Add to water, tea or juice as directed. I use the above links to calculate specific dosages. You may also administer under the tongue to be absorbed directly into the blood stream. It is best to take on an empty stomach. I even add it to my morning juice.
HOW LONG DO THE TINCTURES/GLYCERITES LAST? Alcohol-based tinctures last virtually a lifetime if protected from heat and light, typically 7 to 10 years by common storage results. Glycerites do not require refrigeration and will last 1-3 years.
