ALLERGY RELIEF BLEND ELDERBERRY SYRUP
Now that the flowers are blooming and we are starting to see a light dusting of pollen all around, I’ve been frequently asked what I make for allergy relief. So here is a great start to getting some relief from nasal congestion, scratchy throats, itchy eyes, dry coughs and inflammation with an added immunity boost!
***Update!!! Since I starting making this new blend back in March, I have had so many customers tell me that this Allergy Relief blend is also very effective for other allergy symptoms caused from sources other than pollen!! Pet Allergies and Pet Dander is another one!!! If you know someone who is allergic to pets/pet dander, this blend has been very effective to help relieve itching and red eyes, sneezing and runny noses!! Just 1 dose after exposure and pet allergy symptoms relieved!! Another interesting discovery has been how effective it is for people who are consistently exposed to black mold either in their home or the work place. Taking just 1 tablespoon a day has helped out customers tremendously!
This recipe still contains all the same basic Elderberry Syrup ingredients as well: (*Organic) Dried Elderberries, *Ground Cinnamon & Cinnamon Stick ,*Ground Ginger, *Clove, *Lemon Peel and Local Raw Honey.
The additional Allergy Blend Elderberry Syrup ingredients I’ve added:
~Stinging Nettle– an all natural antihistamine, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antimicrobial and even has some analgesic properties.
Adults take 1 Tablespoon daily.
Children take 1 teaspoon daily.
Babies under 1 year of age take 1/4-1/2 teaspoon daily.
If experiencing bothersome allergy symptoms, take 1 dose every 2-3 hours until symptoms subside then resume daily dose. Not to be given to babies under the age of 1 year as this Allergy Blend Elderberry Syrup contains local raw honey. Allergy Relief Blend Elderberry Syrup may be be made with Organic Pure Maple Syrup for babies under the age of 1 year.

-Is Elderberry Syrup safe for children?
Yes, Elderberry Syrup is safe for children. Please remember that honey should not be consumed by babies under the age of 1 year. I make Elderberry Syrup suitable for babies under the age of 1 year using Pure Maple Syrup to make the syrup more palatable. Elderberry Syrup can be given to babies once food has been introduced, feeding is well established and no intolerances to berries have been noted.
-Is Elderberry Syrup safe to take while pregnant or breastfeeding?
I always instruct to consult with your healthcare practitioner before use. Elderberry Syrup is not FDA approved and is categorized by DHEC as a food product; therefore it always will have this precaution applied.
-Is there anyone who should not consume Elderberry products?
Yes. Elderberry works by stimulating the immune system. This may cause the immune system to become more active and could increase the symptoms of autoimmune diseases. If you have an autoimmune disease, it’s best to avoid using elderberry. Examples of autoimmune diseases are: Multiple Sclerosis, Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus, Lupus, Scleroderma, Psoriasis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. This is just a brief list of the more common autoimmune disorders. Please consult with your healthcare practitioner if you are being treated for any medical condition and/or taking any medication before use.
