Frequently asked questions

How long does it last?

When stored in the refrigerator (typically on a shelf and not in the door) it should last 4+ months. It technically does not go “bad” even after that time frame it just begins to ferment and get a little bubbly (turning into wine). As long as there is no mold forming, then it is okay to consume. You can also freeze the elderberry syrup into ice cube trays for up to a year and thaw out as needed.

Is it safe for children?

While I am not a doctor or medical professional, I personally give my children elderberry syrup and feel completely comfortable doing so. It is recommended for children under the age of one (1) to only take the “no-honey" vegan version.

Is it safe for pregnancy/breastfeeding?

While I am not a doctor or medical professional, I personally took elderberry syrup throughout all three of my non-high risk pregnancies, with the consent of my midwife. I also take elderberry syrup while currently breastfeeding. I recommend that you speak with your midwife or doctor if you have any questions or concerns with this.

How do I get my kids to take it?

My kiddos literately drink it by the glass; however, you may also dilute it in a bit of juice or water to help them get it down. You can also try mixing it into applesauce.

Is your elderberry syurp a good deal?

When purchasing your elderberry syrup from me, you are not only saving your health and getting a better product that is not full of preservatives, you are saving money and supporting a local mama! Elderberry syrup is available in health food stores and organic grocery stores, but it is expensive. You will save about 1/3 of the price compared to retail, but my blends also contain local and all-organic ingredients. My price per ounce: 8 oz jar = $1.50 per ounce 16 oz jar = $1.25 per ounce Compared to the store bought junk: Target 4 oz - $2.32 per ounce Walmart 4 oz - $2.45 per ounce Whole Foods 16 oz - $2.25 per ounce Walgreens 4 oz- $3.70 per ounce GNC 4 oz - $5.50 per ounce

Can I overdose on elderberry syrup?

Moderation is the key to taking elderberry syrup. You cannot overdose, however, one indicator in taking too much elderberry is more frequent trips to the bathroom. Too much elderberry can cause upset bellies. I recommend sticking to the suggested doses for optimal results.
